  • Description


    We are looking for somebody respectful, friendly, creative and preferably with experience working at hostels.

    We need help:
    - cleaning up (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, common areas),
    - welcoming our guests and
    - other activities that we have at the hostel (dinners, bbq's).

    We will try to make you feel at home, part of the family.

    - Bed in exchange for help!
    - You can use the kitchen and of course all the common areas
    - English and Spanish needed

    Its preferably if you stay at least a month (the longer the better) but also depends on the vibe and how we connect.

    We have 2 dogs and a cat, the house is very pretty and most of the people are travellers that make our time better here.
    We are 2 minutes walking away from the beach and very close from all the restaurants and shops here in La Punta. Zicatela is just 25 minutes away walking on the beach and 5 minutes away by taxi. Its a surftown so, is also a great opportunity to go surfing!

Estamos a 2 minutos de la playa y muy cerca de los restaurantes y tiendas aqui en la Punta Zicatela. Zicatela, el siguiente vecindario esta a 25 minutos caminando por la playa y 5 minutos en taxi. Y como esta es una playa de surf, es una gran oportunidad para surfear!
