  • Description


    We are a hostel in beautiful and bohemian Punta del Diablo, Uruguay. We are open all year round and pride ourselves on being a place where staff and guests alike feel as though they are connecting not just with a place, but becoming part of the family. In winter, the town is quiet however we have guests that are looking for a relaxing place where they can enjoy ample beaches, a sleepy fishing village and the surrounding nature.
    During summer ( December through March ) the village become a busy spot for surfers and beach lovers.
    We are looking for volunteers who would like to join our family throughout the year, in a place where we can share this unique experience!!

    May through October: We are looking for help with cooking, reception, housekeeping and general help.
    We have a volunteer staff of 5-8 people during the winter so a friendly, easy-going, fun, positive, team first attitude is a must.

    We all help out around the hostel doing whatever needs to be done during the day. Not a lot of typical "set-hours/specific work" type days for us. We all pitch in to do the chores then enjoy the rewards of spending some time in a quiet beach town during off season. Guest interaction is a must.

    This is a great opportunity to meet backpackers from all over the world and have fun while helping out around the hostel.

    We prefer longer commitments (4-6 weeks or longer) but are always willing to accommodate the right person.
    English is a must and Spanish is obviously helpful. Portuguese is a plus as well.
    Also, German or French would be a plus.
