  • Description


    We are a new, family run hostel/surf house located just metres from the mythical Zicatela Beach. The vibe here is second to none. We have the best mix of surf, chill and party. Join us and play a part in setting up this exciting and popular project.

    There is no better place in town to engage with the community and the magic that is Puerto Escondido. The unique position of our hostel means you are no more than a 15 minute walk from all of the cafes, bars and restaurants. In your free time, there is great fishing, beach activities and wildlife tours to keep you occupied. And of course, the world class waves for which Zicatela is famous, are directly in front of the hostel!

    We are looking for energetic, reliable and flexible volunteers to help out in a wide variety of typical hostel jobs. Whilst there is minimal cleaning or bed making to be done, we need people to help behind the hostel bar, assist with bookings/check ins, organize tours, etc. We would gladly take on anyone who has artistic or handyman skills, as we are constantly looking to upgrade and improve the facilities for our guests.

This allows you to make many connections with the local community, and feel like you are part of the Puerto family. Not to mention, there are few places better in the world to get some of the best waves of your life.
