This valley is one of Switzerland's most stunning and rustic. Our helpers and guests enjoy amazing hiking, yoga in the garden with a view of Italy, and swimming in the emerald-colored river in summer.
We are looking for helpers staying for at least 1 full month at a time, ideally 2-3. DO NOT CONTACT US IF YOU CANNOT STAY ONE FULL MONTH (1st to 31st).

This is one of Switzerland's poorest and yet most interesting regions. Italian is spoken here as we are just on the border with Italy. The valley is inhabited year-round by around 800 people, with lots of vacationers coming in the summer to their second homes.
It's very easy to meet locals and explore the entire place on foot. The rivers are absolutely stunning. Helpers will be integrated into the local community and taught about fascinating local life by the hostel operator. There is a museum about the region close to the hostel. There are also opportunities to learn Italian.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
Helpers will receive free lodging in exchange for interacting with guests to make them feel at home, especially in the evenings. Food is not included.

Hostel dorm room (sleeps 2 max) in a stunning location
Transport to the wonderful city of Locarno is easy and takes from 20-60 minutes depending on the departure point.
Since helpers are asked to be present at the hostel after 17h00 rather than working shifts, they are free to spend their days hiking, swimming, meditating... anything they want!
