  • Descrição


    Hello, I’m Davier! After a long career in education, traveling abroad and living the past 4 years in Asia, I moved to Cabo to launch a dream of opening a hostel. Thanks to the help of incredible Workawayers, we recently opened and are already thriving!

    Two essential questions we hope to explore through the hostel are: “What is Baja culture,” and “how do we as travelers participate in the region in more sustainable and immersive ways?” Two things that make the hostel unique are that we also have a barber shop, and we intentionally involve locals and partner with community organizations so guests meet "choyeros" (people from Cabo).

    We welcome your help running the hostel, such as helping guests check in/out, clean, and general help throughout the house. Because we are new, we also need specialized help, such as social media and marketing, tour guides, and people who are handy (carpentry, plumbing, etc.). We are looking for volunteers who are friendly, adaptable, and responsible.

    Got additional skills that would be helpful? Let us know.


    Hola, soy Davier! Después de una larga carrera en educación, viajar el mundo y vivir 4 años en asia, he decidido mudarme a Los Cabos para emprender el sueño de abrir un hostal. Gracias a los esfuerzos de varios Workawayers increíbles, recientemente abrimos y ya estamos prosperando!

    Dos preguntas esenciales que pensamos explorer a través del hostal son: “qué es la cultura Baja” y “cómo podemos nosotros viajeros participar en la region de maneras más sostenible e integrada?" Dos cosas que hacen el hostal único son que somos una barbería, y que intencionalmente invitamos gente local y colaboramos con organizaciones comunitarias para que los huéspedes puedan conocer a "choyeros" (personas de Cabo).

    Necesitamos tu ayuda para manejar el hostal, como registrar huéspedes, limpiar y ayuda general. Dado a que somos un hostal nuevo, también ocupamos ayuda especializada como redes socials y mercadeo, guías turísticos, y personas que saben arreglar cosas (carpinteros, plomeros, etc.). Buscamos voluntarios amigables, adaptables y responsables.

    Baja California Sur and Los Cabos is a booming tourist and traveler destination, though much of the region’s focus has been luxury and resort-style accommodations. Yet San José del Cabo is a cornerstone of regional arts, history and culture. Here are some things you should consider about our location...

    Culture: San José del Cabo is oozing with galleries, coffee shops, murals, artisan stores, and bars. Despite Cabo’s high tourism, the city still has a local vibe. You’ll get many opportunities to connect with locals, support small businesses, eat street food, explore historical landmarks. There are many fun hilly roads worth winding through to explore the neighborhoods.

    Nature: Cabo is perhaps best known for its natural beauties. You’ll be able to surf, go whale watching, hang at the beach, hike the stunning Sonoran desert, and snorkel in one of the largest reefs in the Americas. The nearest beach is a 20-minute walk from the guesthouse. There are other nearby places worth exploring, such as Cabo San Lucas (infamous for its booming nightlife and party culture), Cabo Pulmo National Park, La Paz (arguably has the best beach in the region) and Todos Santos, which is one of México’s “pueblos mágicos.”

    Language exchange: We are fully bilingual in English and Spanish. I also speak beginner’s level Mandarin Chinese. If my mother is around, expect to get some Cuban cooking at times. You’ll have lots of opportunity to practice and learn any of these languages.

    Community: Much of what we can offer also comes from the richness within our volunteers and friends. We would love to create opportunities for yoga, meditation, dance, music, exercise, drag, writing workshops, intentional chats, baking, film nights, and more. The possibilities are endless with creativity and intention.

  • Ajuda


    We are a new hostel, so we need volunteers who are adaptable, take initiative, and are eager to help. We create as we go.

    Volunteers will help with typical hostel duties, including checking guests in and out, making beds, doing laundry, and helping guests with any questions or concerns. At times, we may ask you to run to a store or help with a specific task. Volunteers who have specialized skills might be asked to help with special projects.

    The most important role of volunteers is to help nurture a friendly, cozy, and kind environment for guests, other volunteers, and community visitors. Let's all enjoy our time together! :)

    We will consider everyone, but strongly prefer volunteers who are at least 25 years old, and those who can stay for at least four weeks. If you are primarily looking to party, we may not be the right workaway for you.

    HOUSING: The hostel is situated in the heart of the historic and arts district of San José del Cabo.

There’s a large balcony that oversees a very lively street.

    FOOD: You will be provided with some essential breakfast ingredients (eggs, cereal, fruits, breads, milk).
