Our Hostel is your home that adapts to whatever your needs are. We try to create a relaxing atmosphere for backpackers and travelers from all over the world looking for a place by the beach in an exciting town. Our main goal is to have every guest that come through our doors feel like they are part of the family. We are a very social hostel with only 20 max guest. We try and help everyone that stays with us make them feel that they are a part of a group and not just a solo traveler
Help around the house
Our volunteers benefit by working in the most beautiful and eco friendly country in the world. They will have the opportunity to see the wildlife and experience the lush rain forest while being close enough to all the bars and restaurants Jaco has to offer. We also offer the chance to learn how to surf in the surf capital of Costa Rica. We will provide you with a free lesson and a board.
The volunteers we are looking for are people who can help with cleaning of the facilities, guest rooms, and common area. The amount of time for the help is roughly 3 to 5 hours depending on the work. We are also looking for volunteers who are wiling to interact with guest. We would like to see our volunteers be available to help our guest whenever is possible so that we can create a bond with them and give them a great experience in an outside of the hostel
Our volunteers will be living in the staff quarters which is located in the back yard. We have two twin beds with shelves and a divider sheet for privacy. The location on the hostel is about one block away from the main road where all the action is and less than 5 mins away from the beach. We are located conveniently close to a grocery store that has everything you will need but there is also a larger one only 10 minutes away.
Volunteers are able to visit other towns and beaches close to Jaco if time permits such as Manuel Antonio and Carara national park. Night life is also a very large part of Jaco life with enough varieties of bars and restaurants that you will never have the same night twice. We also have a beautiful pool located 5 minutes away in front of the beach at an exclusive pool club that is free to use
