The Experience

We are looking for volunteers to help at the reception of our hostel, the terrace and eventually taking care of the pool. We are a hostel with style and friendly people. The job is fairly simple, just registering guests and taking the payments. you would only have to help 5 days a week.

Vivir en el Rua Hostel fue como estar en mi propia casa. El hostel es un encanto, uno de los más bonitos que he visto. El manager es una persona justa y respetuosa y tuve la suerte de encontrar allí unos voluntarios (Maxi, Romeo, Lucia, Karime) igual de maravillosos con los que estuvimos muy muy bien en un clima de colaboración en el trabajo y amistad. Igualmente los empleados, Marina y Ladys son un encanto. El trabajo muy bien, la pasas bien con los compañeros y tienes tiempo libre para conocer alrededor. Una de las mejores experiencias durante estos meses de viaje! 100x100 recomendado :)

Mí experiencia en el Hostel fue la mejor posible, todas las personas del staff fueran muy amables todo el tiempo, el hostel tiene buena ubicacion y instalaciones, donde puede hacer muchas cosas en tu tiempo libre, fue una experiencia muy enriquecedora para mí. Gracias a Juan, Águeda, Marina, Ladys, Veronica, Karime, Mante, Vladimir, Maxi por las amistades y momentos que compartimos juntos, espero volver algún dia. Muchas gracias.

Rua Hostel me encantó. El sitio es hermoso y muy limpio, las habitaciones son muy cómodas, así como todo el hostel. Juan Pablo y Andrés son re buena onda y te ponen turnos flexibles que tanbiem se pueden cambiar los horarios con otros voluntarios. Los voluntarios que estuvieron juntos conmigo también fueron muy amables.
Las senoras que trabajan allá tanbiem son muy buena gente.
Recomendo el lugar... Seguro que volvería.
Muchas gracias por todo Juan y a todos staff.

It was such a nice experience. We stayed in Rua for only two weeks, but we got to know really good people and we could also enjoy Santa Marta and the cities around since we had the weekends off. The hostel is really clean and organized and we basically take care of the reception. I really recommend it!

My two weeks at Rua were incredible! The hostel is really a nice place. The tasks were simple, and the staff and Volunteers who were already there helped me a lot, making the learning process easier. It was really good to be at the reception and welcome and meet people from different countries. I definitely recommend the experience at Rua..Thanks Juan Pablo, Marina, Águeda for all.
