    If you're an energetic person willing to help backpackers from all over the world to know the first capital of Brazil, Join our Team :) We're a small (kind of) party hostel looking for happy friendly people willing to help. Here you just work 3 days a week, meaning you have many days a week to travel and visit other beach island/cities and the National Park!

    Hi, I'm Francisco, a crazy young Brazilian who left his job to follow a dream of opening his own Hostel. This dream moved me to a beautiful city called Salvador, in the Northeast of Brazil.

    With the help of family and friends I was able to open my hostel on June 1st 2014, but as we're quite small, it's expensive to have a full team of paid staff. So I'm looking for friendly, energetic people who are interested in staying in Salvador to help me take care of the reception and basic cleaning and maintenance.

    Our hostel is a small 32 bed hostel located in the heart of the Historic Center (Pelourinho). We have a vibrant young vibe, with friends and customers every night, music playing, etc.

    The Volunteer Program is reception work. Per week you work three 8-hour shifts and help out with the barbecue on Monday. The shifts can be Morning (6h-14h) and Afternoon (14h-22h) and will be scheduled per week. It's necessary to stay at least 5 weeks.

    The reception is responsible for the check-in and check-out of guests, for giving information about the city and events that are going on and for managing bookings. Furthermore during the shift you answer emails, make sure laundry is being done and have light cleaning duties, revising toilets and putting out trash.

    Every Monday we organize a barbecue. As a volunteer you are required to help out but compensated joining the barbecue for free :).
