  • Description

    Description

    We are two friends, "former workaholics" who gave up the crazy life in the big city and moved to Jericoacoara to open a Hostel simply because we LOVE this place and we love hosting people. So from the union of these two passions our hostel was born.

    We offer collective and private rooms, wooden-decks with hammocks to rest after a long day in the dunes, kitchen for cooking and keeping your stuff, lockers, fans and air conditioning, a garden with coconut trees, and best of all: a great atmosphere!

    We also expose art works from local artists as well as travelers. So if you have an artistic side yourself you are free to expose it here!

    Hostel located in Jericoacoara Beach, within short walking distance of supermarket, bakery, drugstore, restaurants, and the beach.

    We are in need of people who can stay AT LEAST 4 WEEKS, to help with general taks like cleaning and helping at breakfast time, doing check in and check outs. We strongly prefer people who can communicate in Portuguese or Spanish (and English is a must!) and who intend to actually WORK 8 hours a day, 3 times a week.

    Please apply ONLY IF YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL TRAVELLER.

    If you want to spend the shift on facebook or laying in the hammock please don't apply! We expect actual work and we give back not only bed and breakfast but also a great atmosphere with guests from all over the world and of course, all the amazing things Jericoacoara has to offer during your free time!

    Plus, if you are a native French speaker we search for someone to practice conversation too.

    During your time off you can enjoy the beautifull village of Jericoacoara, its dunes, beaches, lagunes, etc. If you enjoy wind sports, or surfing and swimming this is a perfect place for you! The village is all made of sand and it's hot all year long. There are daily buses coming from Fortaleza to Jeri, three times a day.
