The Experience

We are a local family business located in the Camino de Santiago, in León. Very experienced receiving people from all around the world and sharing their stories and adventures. We would love to host a responsible person who want to help around the hostel with the cleaning, hosting pilgrims, help with the beer garden and serving meals. We have plenty of nature surrounding us and we love animals here. We are looking forward hear from you :)

My experience in the hostel was amazing. Was my first experience as a volunteer and it couldn't be better. I was planning to get a job but I got a family there. Juan is a true pilgrim who loves the Camino and provides the best experience for others pilgrims. I feel very honored to have the opportunity to be part of this beautiful history. I will never could say thank you enough.

Thanks a lot Amanda. Here you have a home whenever you want 🙏



In the Albergue I was able to meet so many interesting people and really enjoyed to help the pilgrims with what they needed. The work is quiet straightforward and only takes a two or three days to get the hang of it (you get one honeymoon day in the beginning). The volunteers share a room together and we could relax in the hammock in the garden when there was no work. All meals are provided and we usually ate together, which I really liked. I can definitely recommend the Albergue if you're looking for some time away from the big cities and enjoy meeting people from allover the world.

My experience at the albuerge was absolutely amazing. Meeting so many people from different countries who all share a similar mindset was enriching and I learned a lot of new things. Juan and Evi are incredible people and the food is just as spectacular as they are :) I can assure you that the dessert will be one of the best things you have ever tasted

My experience in the hostel was excellent. You are part of a mission to help and love people around you.. and you will be helped and loved for doing it ! You feel useful in your work and have free time to do what you want: relax, rethink, walk, pet animals, eat, connect to other people, have fun, etc. I volonteered to disconnect from my job, I came back filled with love and know more about myself thanks to the beautiful place, the divers jobs, the pilgrims, the volonteers, and Juan. Trust yourself, your life and people on your road. Be at peace 🙏

Las Àguedas was my first volunteering experience and I couldn't have asked for a better one! The place is quiet, beautiful and full of good vibes. The tasks were simple and easy but it's hard to define exactly how many hours you work per day because some days there were no pilgrims and we had to do only 1h cleaning in the morning and chill the rest of the day. But in busy days it's possible that you'll be asked to stay around and work a bit longer, which I think it was fair enough. Juan and Evi are amazing people !kind, flexible and communicative. I'll definitely come back!
