  • Beschreibung


    Our hostel is a fun, laid back, social hostel in the centre of San Pedro on beautiful Lake Atitlan. Rated the #1 hostel on Lake Atitlan. Two years ago I purchased it with a group of my best friends - also backpackers who have stayed at/worked at hostels around the world. We're super passionate about our work here and are looking to run the hostel with a group of fun volunteers who want to help create a welcoming and adventurous environment and who love to work hard and play harder.
    We currently have 8 paid local staff. This includes 4 cleaners, 2 night guards, a gardener and 1 maintenance worker.
    We typically have between 8-12 volunteers, so it always feels like we're a big family hanging out :)

    We're looking for people who want to have fun and help with serving our guests. If you can commit to a month, and you want to come and enjoy all that our hostel has to offer, please send us a message.

    Special Positions:
    - Photographers - min 1 week
    - Social Media Content Creators - min 2 weeks
    - Yoga instructors who are interested in teaching 4 to 5 classes each week.
    - Artists who are interested in painting murals, or doing special projects.

    San Pedro is a very small town and we work directly with local businesses like Spanish schools, local restaurants, craft stores, and other hostels in town. The town is one big community and during your time here you will come to see why this place is so magical, the way all different people of all backgrounds live together in one loving community makes this a culturally rich experience!

  • Arbeit


    Your role would essentially be to have a great time and contribute to the good vibes. We have a full time local staff of cleaners, gardeners, and maintenance workers. So we'll never ask you to do any of that, outside of cleaning up after yourself :)

    We ask volunteers to help 25 hours a week - which may include: event/party planning, painting projects (if you're artistic), showing guests around town, leading events/bar crawls and boat parties, and anything else you think would be fun to do with guests. Basically, having a good time and keeping the guests happy! We also have community service projects such as a lake cleanup, and helping at a local dog shelter. We want to party and be leaders in the community!
