  • Description


    We are a family creating a new hostel in Mäncora. We enjoy spending time together, and making friends that become family. This place is a different world. We receive people from all over the world and we welcome them home. Our hostel offers a nice and chilled environment, we have english and spanish lessons and surf lessons. We are very close to the beach, and we love to see the sunset together. We also have family lunch several times a week, where we all buy, cook and eat together, guests and volunteers.

    We are currently seeking volunteers that want to be part of our family. We have rotating shifts that include making breakfast, helping with housekeeping, working at the bar, helping in the online marketing and social networking. We want volunteers to leave their mark in our home, all ideas are welcome,

    Our volunteers receive a bed in a shared room, with other volunteers , and breakfast every day.
