  • Description


    We are a young team dreaming up a new cultural hostel in beautiful Zipolite, Oaxaca. We aim to create heaven for artists and dreamers and dancers and ocean lovers to enjoy this amazing beach and love for life. We are located right on the beach (its mexicos only nudist beach). A gay bar and a camping space are our neighbors. We have a dog and a baby cat, some mosquitos and a lot of sand and music. Some days are super relaxed, others are about organizing the chaos. We love watching full moons, the endless huge waves, crazy travelers passing by and volunteers who make this space amazing. We are open for any ideas, we had volunteers giving acroyoga classes, gay-dance workshops or marionette theatre....

  • Help


    We need help in different kind of activities, but mostly it’s helping with check ins in reception, or talking to guests, helping them feel at home or if they need assistance with information... general keeping the place tidy and clean ( we have a cleaning lady but we want to keep the place clean and nice everyday so we might ask for help doing basic Maintenance.

    Morning shift is tidying up the common area and welcoming guests into the common areas, changing Sheets at check out time. The evening shift is keeping an eye on the common areas, so that they are tidy, also mainly being present in the common area just in case guests need directions or information, sell some beers and have some beers yourself. Also recieving guests that might arrive in the evening and showing them the hostel.

    Other optional activities which we welcome helping hands is in our "events or activities"... We like to do movie nights, or bonfire nights, jam sessions.. If you like you can join these and if you have any ideas if new activities that we can do, we are open to including them! We like our home to be welcoming and interesting, we're sure every traveller has something cool to share :)
