We run a fun hostel in the center of Granada. From the hostel you can visit the famous Alhambra or go and visit the snowy Sierra Nevada. Granada is a university town with great night-life, culture and architecture.
European passport is required and some basic Spanish is helpful.
Type of help
Helping with Tourists,
Work exchange at our hostel consist of a variety of tasks. The main duty is from 10 till required 5 days a week and includes the following:
Ensuring breakfast is topped up, whilst interacting with guests. Making the guest feel welcome is an important aspect of work ex duties as well as promoting any daily activities the hostel has on offer throughout the day.
Running any errands the hostel requires. This usually only occurs once or twice a week and is typically go to the bank which is only a short walk away.
at 12 when breakfast finishes, you need to pack up all the breakfast food and ensure the kitchen is clean.
Once all the above is done the primary role begins of making the beds. The work is very easy as all the general cleaning of the room is done by other staff members. Therefore all is required is to simply put new sheets on the required beds and fold the blankets neatly. Finally if the reception needs help with some daily duties, you will have to help them. Once all the required needs are made the work is finished for the day. Due to the variance of amount of people checking out each day the work load fluctuates thus altering the amount of hours required to work. However we will not ask for more than 5 hours daily.

What else ...
The benefits of working with our Hostel includes receiving free accommodation, free laundry, and discounts on our dinners and breakfast. Also at the hostel bar the drinks are really cheap for staff (0.50 euros for a sangria or beer). Also the 2 days off are consecutive so it is easy to travel for a few nights (ask for it and we will get something free around)
At our hostel the staff are all really friendly and do nice things such as cook lunch for one another and socialize outside work together!

Fredi is a great worker! Fun, happy and always willing to help. You are lucky if you get him to work at your hostel. Great artist as well ;)
We miss you ;)

Nick is nice and social guy, but very lazy and irresponsible.
On his last day he basically ran away without saying bye cause there was a lot of work, which says it all.
The day I arrived to this nice place I thought I would like to stay there a bit longer than three weeks, so I lived there for 5 months. What a great memories! Granada is a magnificent place of the world, but I used to spend most of my time in the hostel eating, chating, partying. Work was really easy, from time to time some little extra duties
Oh Rasa! I wish all volunteers would be like you, don´t you want to come back again?
Ended up spending 3 months working here. Best group of people ever, perfect hostel to live and work in. Plus Granada is incredible. You would be lucky to work here.
Hester was so good that we are planing to hire her to work in reception!
We only allow contact to Workawayers with active subscriptions.
I stayed for a month and a half more or less and had a fantastic time. All the staff are really friendly and great to hang out with, and except to go out for dinner or buy some groceries, I seemed to spend all my time in the hostel either working (which was always easy and usually enjoyable when you have someone to work with), eating, cooking or
Ryan is a great person, always ready to help out and have some fun. Definitely one of our best workawayers! We hope to see him around again doing workaway or just traveling. Totally recomended.
I stayed there in may for three weeks and enjoyed my stay. You work together with 2 other workawayers & sleep in a 4 bed dorm. The work starts at 10 with breakfast where you make sure everything is filled up. Then you are doing your main job, which is doing beds. So the work is really easy. I've seen now that they finally changed the description
