Our Hostel is located in the lush green mountains in the Oriente Antioqueño in the quaint little town of Alejandria. Our hostel is a small community where guest, employees and volunteers come together to make the magic happen. The hostel is located 12 minutes walking from the main park in Alejandria facing the Nare River. Alejandria is a town off the beaten path where only travelers will venture, the town was recognized for its hospitable locals and safe streets. Take a stroll on a bike, or perhaps trek to one of many waterfalls nearby on your time off.

Our hostel allows our volunteers to use their talents and strengths, If you are artistically inclined let us know what color paint you need and feel free to choose a wall and express yourself, if your are feeling techie or photographic write a blog or take pictures in the nearby areas and help market our hostel. If you like to cook offer dinner to our guest. Learn Spanish while you are there because you will only find a hand full of people in town who speak fluent English. Come and stay with us !!!
Volunteers are able to contribute with any talents while they are at the hostel. They are to collaborate 3 days per week (5 hours.day) with our staff tackling daily cleaning duties such as sweeping, mopping, washing and folding sheets. Taking the dogs for a hike is a common task that our volunteers enjoy.
Volunteers will get a bed in a dorm at our hostel, access to laundry, free WI-FI, free coffee/tea, hot water and storage areas while they enjoy their off days. They will also have access to tube float the Nare River and mountain bikes to explore the unpaved Alejandria roads.
Volunteers can visit amazing natural pools and waterfall throughout our rural areas, they can also travel to local towns like Concepcion and Guatape. They will get the opportunity to stroll through their colonial streets and even climb the Piedra del Peñol. In Alejandria volunteers also have the opportunity to visit el Balneario Nudillales, horseback ride, workout in the local gym (free), visit one of many waterfalls and relax in the soothing waters, or go tubing down the Nare River.
