We are a hostel in Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica located directly on the beach with an awesome view of the famous Salsa Brava surf break.
We have 6 private rooms and 2 mixed dorm rooms, but are renovating currently to have more dorms on the main floor and private rooms in the house beside the hostel (also beach front!).
Our hostel gives you a bird's-eye view of one of the most interesting and unique places in the whole world. We offer a cultural and social experience for our guests since we are located above one of the 1st bars in Puerto Viejo. It is pretty loud and lively on the weekends which is a great fit for some people - but for others that are looking for peace and quiet it may not be the best fit so please take this into consideration before applying.
We are looking for fun, considerate, talented and open-minded individuals to help us take care of our guests and improve the hostel's vibe, ambiance and offerings.
Accommodations provided are shared and we have two communal kitchens that we share with our fellow travellers.
We welcome all kinds of specialties and skills so please be sure to add that into your application subject along with the month you will be here.
