  • Description


    Hi, we are Francesco and Daniela, and we manage a small guest house in Costa Rica, more precisely in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.
    The place is pretty small, it only has six rooms for rent and a shared kitchen, two shared bathrooms and showers. There is a nice big tropical garden with a bunch of fruit trees as well coconut trees, sometimes we also have sloths living in our garden.
    We are 200 mt from the sea and also 300 mt from downtown, we are in the jungle, far away from the noise but at the same time very close to the main facilities.
    We like to do our best to help our travellers feel at home when they're here by creating a friendly and chill out environment.
    We keep our rooms affordable, the space very clean and friendly for our guests to enjoy their vacation at it's best and start traveling again relaxed and not depleted.

    At the moment we need ideally a volunteer who can stay with us from December 2019 until end April 2020. He/She is going to share the room with another volunteer.

    We need help in running the guesthouse, that requires cleaning, attention to details and a proactive attitude. Previous experience in hospitality is always appreciated.

    We look forward to hearing back from you!

    The work here is pretty easy, morning cleaning of bathrooms, kitchen, rooms and common spaces, checking clients in and out and helping them with info about the guest house or about the surroundings, as well as some minor gardening work.
    Morning and late afternoon/evening shifts, minimum of one month stay, short trial period and most important that you are motivated, responsible and like to work in contact with all sorts of different people.

    The hostel is quiet and immersed in the green, you can have an awesome time looking at the many different kinds of birds, insects and plants that surround us as well as enjoy surfing, snorkeling, hiking and discovering the wonderful Caribbean culture with it's music and it's food or the indigenous culture of the Bri Bri's, the natives.
    Perfect environment for yoga or meditation and relax.
