We are a small hostel in the Sabana neighborhood of San Jose. We offer a relaxed atmosphere, a bit of tranquility in the busy city. We are convenient to the airport and most major bus terminals, so we have a lot of travelers who use us as a stop-over between destinations around the region.
Help around the house
It's a great way to interact with people from other countries, all in the same spot. Volunteers will learn a lot about customer service, practice Spanish and learn some basics of hotel management as well.
Most of the time is spent with our clients, checking them in and out, helping them find their way around town, etc. Each shift has some light cleaning duties as well. We ask for a 3 month commitment,
with senior staff available to help with any issues.
This host offers a language exchange
I'm a native English speaker and I studied Linguistics at La Universidad de Costa Rica (en español, por supuesto). I'd be more than happy to share my knowledge with any or all volunteers that come my way :)
We have a staff dorm that you will share with no more than 5 other volunteers. Pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee and tea are provided everyday for breakfast. You will also have access to laundry, internet, hot showers, a full kitchen and fresh produce delivery provided by the hostel.
This is the perfect position for someone who enjoys interacting with people from around the globe. Our clientele is mainly travelers, but it includes a variety of expats and locals as well. We are located in a great neighborhood, close to a variety of sodas (cafes), the Sabana Park, museums, and shops. You can easily reach any part of the city by bus, as well as the airport.
