    We want you to enjoy and have a good time during your stay with us. Our location right on the beach gives you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the sand, sun and sea. If you love to surf or are dreaming of learning how to, this is the perfect place for it. The beach offers different spots for both skilled surfers, intermediate and beginners. There are also good possibilities for learning or practicing Spanish while you stay with us. You can practice with our staff, part of which is bilingual or if you want to take classes there are many options for this too. If you love yoga there are many good places to enjoy this too. We will gladly help you out with anything we can and can give you recommendation on the best places to visit and activities to do in your off time and on free days.

  • Help


    You will be helping out with general work that varies depending on what is needed. Anything from reception work,
    cleaning, guest interaction or art projects. We have general staff taking care of the main part of the cleaning and reception work but everyone staying with us will be required to do a bit of work in these areas. If you have any special skills with website making, marketing, social media, construction, gardening or anything else we can use many different types of skills.

    Mainly we are looking for responsible, friendly and outgoing volunteers that want to socialize with the other guests and help create a nice atmosphere around the hostel.

    We need English speaking volunteers and if you speak any other languages (especially Spanish) it is a great plus but not absolutely required.
