  • Description

    Description

    **We require a 2 month commitment to volunteer with us. but we prefer 3 months if possible. After two months, you may extend for another 2 months.**
    *Sorry but we can not accommodate couples!*
    *If you are intending to use this program as a means to "move to Hawaii" please do not apply.*

    Aloha! Our backpacker hostel is located directly on the lagoon and ocean in beautiful Kapa'a town on the island of Kauai. Kapa'a was voted one of the top beautiful towns in America. Kauai is the "Garden Isle" and is by far the most beautiful of all the Hawaiian Islands. A lush tropical environment with a cooling Pacific TradeWind breeze coming through the hostel. People travel here from around the world to hike some of the most amazing trails in the world (see Na Pali Coast & Waimea Canyon).


    We are looking for some great helpers to join our staff! You must be outgoing, energetic, hard working, and able to channel the "aloha spirit" of the island. We currently are looking for helpers with hostel experience (preferred but not necessary).

    **ALL POSITIONS at the hostel require you to clean. If you are not a strong cleaner with attention to detail, please do not apply. Those who do not have high standards for cleaning will be asked to leave.**

    Helpers do a variety of tasks, although mainly it involves any of the following:

    Housekeeping - cleaning, bathrooms, pulling sheets off beds, Deep cleaning, organizing the hostel, etc.

    Reception - checking people in & out, ensuring people have paid, answering the telephone, taking cash payments and directing Credit Card payments. (Management's discretion as to who is a receptionist.)

    Maintenance - the tropical environment keeps us busy with upkeep. This job would be varied depending on the needs. If you have any maintenance experience, like painting, plumbing, electric, let us know!

    In return for your help of approximately 18 hours per week, you will enjoy a nice bed and your utilities, including of course hot showers, full kitchen and other freebies like WiFi. We all help prepare a weekly staff meal paid for by the hostel. We also provide helpers basic staples like rice and beans to add to your meals every everyday. Guests often leave food behind for the staff.

    We ask our volunteers to stay with us for a term of 2-3 months. If you can not stay for a full 2 months the chances of being selected are very slim.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Kauai has so much to explore that it's impossible to describe here. Mountains nearby, we are surrounded by beaches many lagoons including our Blue Lagoon, hiking and bike paths along the ocean, a dozen rivers to explore by kayak and Stand Up Paddle, waterfalls, rainbows, surfing, swimming, fishing, zip lines, and vistas everywhere. Do your research!

    The island-wide bus service stops in both directions just outside of our hostel, so everything is within reach. There is also an 11 mile bike path right outside of our hostel going right along the edge of the ocean; it is spectacular! You can walk to 20 restaurants; there are 60 in Kapa'a Town, many are international. There is also live music in Kapa'a 7 nights a week at different pubs and clubs.

    The sun and moon rise come up directly in back of the Hostel, amazingly and every day, just so you can begin and end your day in this Tropical Paradise of Kauai in blissful surroundings.
