Volunteer in a hostel in Ecuador – requirements & tasks

We welcome volunteers who can commit to helping out for at least a month. We do make some exceptions for shorter stays, but we love it if volunteers stay longer! We take up to 4 volunteers at a time.

Volunteers are expected to help out 30 hours a week and assist with a bit of everything – cleaning around the hostel, gardening, helping out with guests making them feel at ease. If you can paint murals, that would be very cool, we have a few spots left.

As representatives of the hostel, we need you to be polite, friendly, and professional. Shifts vary depending on how many volunteers are here. Also, days off vary depending on the schedule with other volunteers – you’ll receive your schedule each week.

You need to speak some English, and it’s helpful if you know some Spanish.

Volunteer in a hostel in Ecuador – what we offer

We have a shared room for our volunteers, which has bunk beds. It’s right off of the courtyard. In addition, you will have access to the shared kitchen to prepare your meals. You will be able to explore the beautiful Bahia de Caraquez in your free time.

You can use our laundry room, bikes any time you want. We have games (chess, backgammon and Xbox), a guitar, and surfboards.
