Wanana Rooftop Hostel

I'm a mechanical engineer and the owner of this hostel, located in Piura, northern Peru. I'm a traveler and i love meet people and learn about different cultures. We are looking for friendly and fun volunteers to help in: reception, cleaning, construction, landscaping or ecological projects for the hostel. We're located in a great area of the city because everything is near us: Supermarket, Restaurants, ATM, Malls, all the major bus stations for your continued travel to everywhere and anywhere. There's also a huge open market about a 5-minute walk from our hostel where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables. It's a fun adventure walking through the different areas of this market, and everything is really cheap. If you want to feel like a local and learn more about other cultures and languages and take a rest after your trip this is your place. From Piura Main city it's easy to go to all of Northern Peru's beaches, just walk from the Hostel to the bus stop and within about 45 minutes, you're at the closest beach. 💚🌵 In your free time you can enjoy a relaxing visit next to the river in AQUALUNA or you can help us with our charity in a Children's House (5 minutes walking from the Hostel). Discover all the beaches that Piura has to offer, or go to the mountains in Piura or discover all the towns that we have in the Northern Peru. For us, our volunteers are the heart of the Hostel. Without volunteers the heart does not beat. Guys, you are always part of our family.

We look for committed and responsible travelers with sociable attitudes. Support according to the hostel's needs and each volunteer's specialties and abilities. We mainly seek support FOR: reception, cleaning, construction, landscaping or ecological projects for the hostel. We want you to feel comfortable and have fun while you are with us! Minimum time of volunteering: 2 weeks Free accommodation and some other special treats. Local market is near the Hostel where you can buy cheap, fresh and delicious food. We have full kitchen.

El Wanana Hostel es un lugar tranquilo para voluntariar, las tareas son fáciles y todos, los voluntarios y el dueño te ayudan para cumplirlas.




Desde el momento que me tiraron las llaves sabía que Wanana iba a ser el lugar ideal para pasar mi cumple. Tanto los otros voluntarios como Gianfranco me hicieron sentir como en casa!
Las tareas en el Wanana son simples y muy flexibles. En Piura no hay tanto que hacer, pero la onda del Hostel es muy relajada y entretenida.




Wanana es un excelente espacio para sentirse como en casa. Las tareas son muy simples y los horarios muy flexibles. El ambiente es muy familiar. Ideal para descansar y compartir tranquilamente. Gianfranco, un excelente anfitrión muy buena onda!!! =)




Fueron dos semanas de mucho aprendizaje, sobre todo de otros idiomas! Un Hostel con una atmósfera increíble para hacer las tareas y conocer nuevas personas.




Esta experiencia me ha encantado!
Es un lugar muy agradable donde puedes aprender y compartir con gente de muchas partes del mundo.
Wanana tiene el poder de hacerte sentir en casa, tanto si eres voluntario o huésped.
Ame está experiencia!
