  • Description

    Description

    'Ahhhh, lovely Livingston!' said someone once.

    Within a country previously torn apart by violent criminal activity and scruffy politics lies a little paradise called Livingston. We offer a safe haven, distanced from the tight grasps of the thirsty blood-sucking neighboring cities.
    At this hostel, you will learn to work together to survive with minimal resources, outsmart your friends, and defeat your enemies. Each volunteer will begin with a zip-lock bag containing a flashlight, fire blanket and an old pair of snub-nosed scissors.

    JUST KIDDING!!! if you did not get it by now that this is a joke, maybe you should not apply ;)

    So the truth is, we are a fun and famous party hostel located in a beautifully remote town, close to the ocean and the amazing Rio Dulce river. There are four shifts per day, which we rotate among about 4 other staff members. Your job is mainly to get a party going and keep the party going; socialize with guests; make them drinks; check them in and out; ;-) and give guests valuable information about the tours we offer, getting around town, reaching their next destination, not to mention, to show them the best way to enjoy life in Livingston.

    You will get one/two days off every week, which will allow you to go on some day tours yourself (at dirt cheap price), learn Spanish, siesta or nurse a nasty hanger. We have a one month minimum commitment, you will receive two free meals per day and discounted price drinks, bar tab and your own room (loft) or a bed in the staff dorm (4pers.). All our volunteers really have been brilliant and some become part of the furniture, some returning for Round 2, and others recommending us to their friends...

    If you're interested, send us a message letting us know exactly when you can come (and for how long) and giving us some details about yourself (travel & volunteering experiences, level in English & Spanish and any special skills that could be helpful here at the hostel).
    We'll then let you know if we have any availability !

    Cheers,

    Chris, owner
