The Experience

We need volunteers to cover some reception shifts, so we need nice and friendly people for that :) Good English is a must have, experience with costumer service is a plus. Bring your energy and new ideas for the hostel. We offer free accommodation, breakfast, yoga classes and a nice social hostel to meet awesome people. Wif is great btw, 20Mb/s is really good, but also we have a greater connection with the staff and other guests of our hostel.

The experience at Mandala Hostel was incredible. The space is very pleasant and has a decoration that transmits incredible energy. The roof garden is the most beautiful part of the hostel, with a wonderful view of Bogotá. The staff is very kind and welcoming, made me feel part of the mandala family. The work is very nice and the administration is very competent. It was a great home during my stay in Bogotá. I will keep my experience here in my heart. Thank you, mandala.



Being in the Mandala It was a very enriching experience for my life. I made very good friends and shared several unforgettable moments with the people on the team. I helped in the reception and watering the plants; We did yoga, meditation, we watched movies, we cooked, we went out on bicycles, we made a bonfire and in the evenings we always shared long deep conversations.



The hostel and the people there are really great, they make you feel like home since the first day. And also the accommodation is really nice. I only suggest discussing all the details of work hours, days off etc with them before you go, and if it’s what you want, I think it’s a great experience!



Cada día un nuevo aprendizaje. Me encantó todo el equipo de Mandala!
Una experiencia trascendental.
Gracias por todo!
Fue realmente único y especial.



La pasé genial en Mandala Hostel. Era la primera vez que hacía un voluntariado de este tipo y fue genial. Aprendí mucho de cómo manejar un negocio como hostal. El staff fue muy amable conmigo, aprendí mucho de ellos, había mucho compañerismo. Definitivamente recomiendo a Mandala para hacer este tipo de actividades. Estoy muy feliz de haber trabajado y compartido con ellos.
