    Welcome Volunteer Applicant!

    We would like to welcome you to our 2013-2014 volunteer program.

    Ours is a small hostel with a lot of heart. When conceived, the owners took a serious commitment to change how travelers experience hostels. In order to truly change the game, we acknowledged the importance of a proficient volunteer program where travelers not only work in return for their stay, but also contribute to the experience. Fueled by this fact, we designed a volunteer program that fuses our needs to your goal of getting to know our beautiful country without compromising your wallet.

    Our program is heavily travel-driven. We aim to provide volunteers the change to get the most of their trip so that in turn we may reap the benefits of a motivated and determined staff.
