  • Description


    Puerto Rico’s #1 Bunk & Breakfast Hostel is expanding and moving into a beautiful new property just 150 feet away from our award-winning location. Given this, we are looking for Co-Builders to help us from painting, tiling, garden work, furniture assembly and more.

    We are a Bunk & Breakfast Hostel which loves hosting guests from around the world.
    That's why we are ranked #1 by both our Co-Hosts and Co-Builders (Workaway), as well as by our Guests! (2019 Hoscar Winner of Best Hostel in Puerto Rico, #1 for Puerto Rico Hostels). However, since hostel travel is low due to worldwide COVID-19, we are using the time to open up our newest location.

    What makes us the #1 Workaway option on the Island?

    1: BEST LOCATION: We are located right between the Best Beaches and Night Life in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our Condado Beach neighborhood is very safe, clean and nice. We are within walking distance of some of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico including Condado and Ocean Park, good snorkeling in the Condado Laguna, the best nightlife in La Placita Santurce, as well as various bars, museums, stores, restaurants and more. (San Juan - Puerto Rico - Caribbean)

    2: FREE FULL BREAKFAST: We serve a great complimentary full breakfast every morning from 8 AM to 10 AM, it includes fresh waffles, multi-grain toast, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea and all the spreads and condiments. As hosts, we treat our co-builders as our guests, so they are provided the same great breakfast along with our guests.

    3: EXCLUSIVE LUXURY BUNKS: We import deluxe memory foam mattresses from the mainland, these combined with out high quality super soft microfiber sheets makes for a great nights sleep. Our rooms are equipped with sturdy Ikea bunk bed frames, storage cubes and mirrors.

    4: FREE FIBER OPTIC INTERNET: We have the fastest internet available on the island with a direct fiber optic line providing an entire gigabit of wifi so streaming videos, surfing the web or video calling are fast and easy.

    5: CO-BUILDER BENEFITS: To make our hostel the best to work for we offer multiple benefits to our staff including free stays and exchange programs at other partner hostels around the island, friends and family discounts, free weekly laundry and more.

    6: OUR FLEXIBLE HOURS: We try to be as flexible as possible with our scheduling to allow you the most time off possible to explore the island and take in all it has to offer. We ask our workaways for 24 hours per week. (Note: When we have conflicting schedule requests between workawayers, we give preference to staff based on seniority and performance.)
