The Experience

We are looking for a friendly person who likes meeting people and helping us to keep a nice atmosphere in our hostel. We need help with the reception, some days from 4 to 9 pm and other day from 8pm to midnight, after that, open the door for the guests who come back in the late hours. We have a portable ringbell that allows the volunteer to go to bed and wake up when somebody is at the door.

Fue una hermosa experiencia! tanto Edgar cómo Mari son dos personas espectaculares, te enseñan y ayudan en lo que necesites, muy atentos.
El hostel es un ambiente muy agradable, limpio y con buena ubicación, ya que a pocas cuadras nos encontramos cerca del centro.
Volvería mil veces más y lo súper recomiendo, en todo momento me sentí como en casa.

I had such a great time working with Edgar and Maria. They’re very attentive and helped me with everything I needed. The other volunteers and workers were amazing too. Both hostels are amazing. I am very happy that I have been able to help them with the new hostel. The best of luck to you, guys. And thank you for everything.

It was an amazing experience worked at Quintas de La Real hostel. I was very well received, They treat you like a family. The Hostel is very clean, has good location and the Owners, Edgar and Maria Claudia make you feel at home all the time. They have very good vibe!! The work is easy and fair and Cartagena is beautiful! I strongly recommended this Hostel to volunteers! Besides the good experience, I made new friends! I love them!!!
