Actividades & Turnos

The volunteers have a variety of roles around the hostel, working together as a team to provide a unique experience for our guests. The primary job of the volunteers is leading two hikes which we offer to guests each day. The hikes are through a private ecological reserve in the mountains. One hike is to the summit of Pasochoa Volcano (4200m) and the other is a hike through a creek to our local waterfalls (2h approx.). Typically each volunteer leads each hike a few times per week, so we are looking for people who are into trekking and hiking and work well in group environments.
Helping our local staff with setting/cleaning the tables and serve the meals (our food is all for free for you and it is delicious) is also part of your job.
The staff speak Spanish so its also a great way to improve your own Spanish.


Our main rule is being flexible. Some days there is bit more to do then other more chilled days.
Anyways you will have plenty of time to relax in the middle of the nature, play with our 5 dogs or spend time in the Jacuzi with guest from all over the world.
