The Experience

Our yoga teacher volunteer is leaving in November and we are looking for someone interested in giving 2 classes a day to our guests in exchange of food and accommodation. You will have plenty of free time to discover one of the most beautiful and fun area of Colombia and will live the real beach life as we are literally located on the sand, in the jungle!

The hostel is a great place to meet tourists/travellers. There are a lot of activities and parties to be had on the beach. As the yoga teacher I had very little work to do, and I found myself helping around the bar and kitchen as well. It would be a great place if you also had work to do remotely. The place is work friendly, and it's easy to work around the schedule here.

Had an amazing experience volunteering at the hostel. The team is really nice and welcoming and the place just feels like paradise. You get to teach twice a day in a very nice shala surrounded by the jungle. All levels of clients from Beginners to Advanced and it really is a very nice experience to improve your teaching skills. Definitely loved the experience and wished I could have stayed longer🌞 thank you so much for everything !

My experience in this hostel was absolutely amazing!! i worked as a yoga instructor which was a nice exchange of energy most days, not many people comes to the classes so i would just keep that in mind if you'd prefer bigger sizes. the staff there is so welcoming and kind. located right on the beach<3!! super duper chill vibes all the time and in a beautiful area. 10/10 recommend;) xx

I had a wonderful time . It's a beautiful location, friendly staff, and lots of time and space to develop my yoga teaching and create a nice experience for the guests. It's not a party hostel, but if that's what you are looking for there are other hostels close by to go visit. Thank you!!
