If you are looking for a quiet homey place in the capital city where there is a lot to do, this is the place for you. This is a home more than a hostel, a small operation so it is rather personal. You will learn to manage a hostel's operations - as this is a small place, you get to do and learn everything. We also practice organic, permaculture style gardening, so if that is of interest, do join us. You get to enjoy many organic fruits and veggies, pick them from the trees yourself.
Our house is away from the noise of the center but only about 20 minutes' walk away. There is a lot to do in the city - music and arts events, hikes, experiencing a new culture.
I am a woman in my 50s; I live in part of the house and offer the rest as a hostel/guesthouse. We only have 3 rooms to offer for guests, so there is not much of a staff. You get to work with me and other volunteers form around the world. You have lots of independence, flexibility, but also responsibility. Self initiative is expected, you use your judgement to do what is required to make the place function optimally.
