    We are a 24 room mid-sized hostel and Inn (The only one in Squamish!) which tends to be much more on the adventurer side rather then a "Party" destination. That being said, every day we're full of exciting and adventurous people of all ages who are coming to experience Squamish. We're passionate about the surrounding wilderness, have a very Canadian Lodge'ish vibe, and are the perfect place for you to experience all that Squamish and British Columbia have to offer.

    Please read on for our complete Workaway listing..

    - Located 35 minutes between Vancouver and Whistler, BC, we are the ultimate destination for an authentic Canadian experience.

    - Opportunity to live in a dynamic environment with travelers from all over the world. Learn new languages and skills!

    Our goal is to provide the best hostel experience possible and our workaway team is an integral part of this dream! We encourage you to explore and build lasting relationships with each other and guests from all over the world.

    There's LOTS to do in a hostel but our 3 main departments are: Housekeeping, Front desk & Maintenance. Please let us know in your email what you would like to be considered for and what experience you have. Other positions open up from time-to-time; feel free to inquire if any are available but let us know what you are hoping for!

    We generally ask for a 10 week commitment. The starting wage is always equal to or greater than minimum wage and we prefer applicants with valid work permits.

    It is very important to us that we choose the right workawayers so please don't be shy: let us know your skills and which position would suit you best. Looking forward to hearing from you!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Squamish is the Outdoor Recreational Capital of Canada. You'll have access to the best wilderness on offer, right in your backyard. Literally some of the best Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Kite boarding, Windsurfing, hiking, mountaineering, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, slack-lining in all of North America! All is easily accessible and within 15 minutes of where we are located.

    We're also right downtown so cafes, bus stops, grocery stores, restaurants and pubs are all within a few minutes walk from our door. We don't have a restaurant (so you're responsible for your own food) but we do have an awesome kitchen for you to cook in.

    Cheers!
