The Experience

Due to the pandemic and the lack of tourist we need to make money in some other ways. Since last october we started opening our garden as a restaurant to sell beers and food. We need of course help of cookers, bartenders, waiters. All of them with experience as we do not have much and it will be awesome to learn from you on this.

Learning & Fun




I had an amazing time in Nucapacha! It was my first experience as a volunteer and everything in there was awesome. I could improve my English and Spanish talking to the people who went to the hostal. Also, I learned so much from the people who work there.

I had a great time here - Carolina and Verena (the owners) were incredibly welcoming and patient with me as I learned the ropes. The other volunteers I stayed with were also great people. Would recommend!

Nucapacha its a really awesome place, there is a really good and chill vibe. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. Nucapacha was a great chance to connect with a lot of people make new friends and all my time there was amazing so far.

¡¡Todo fue genial!! El trabajo brindado fue el que se acordó, sin sorpresas. Un lugar donde todas las experiencias fueron positivas y profundamente enriquecedoras, es como una familia, las encargadas del lugar, los compañeros y los huéspedes que frecuentan el lugar tienen una vibra que fácilmente te hacen sentir como en casa. Todos fueron muy serviciales y amables. Se encuentra en un punto estratégico para recorrer sin complicaciones los lugares más bonitos de Guayaquil.
Me voy con toda la ilusión de volver en algún momento, una experiencia super linda.

Mi primer voluntariado fue de lo mejor, con personas muy amables como lo es Carolina y cada una de las personas que se encuentran ahí incluyendo a Nachito ❤️, el ambiente del hostel es muy acogedor que tranquilamente puedes quedarte en las instalaciones todo el día:) pero si tienes tiempo para conocer la ciudad pues te dan un muy buen horario, la verdad me encantó NUCAPACHA y quedo agradecida de las buenas amistades que hice y todas las cosas nuevas que aprendí aquí, lo recomiendo millón.
