  • Description


    Hello everyone, I'm Fabio and I'm opening a brand new hostel right on the beach on Lake Como (Domaso). The hostel is located at a spectacular position right on the beach. Domaso is located in the north part of the lake and is a wind paradise and it's perfect for practicing windsurf, kitesurf or sailing.

    Here you will have the chance to work in a international environment and to meet people from all over the world at the hostel. I really suggest, if you like lake activities, to take part to some surf or sailing classes

    I'm looking for a very dynamic native (or almost) German Speaker, able to speak at least another language between English, French or Italian, from April to October. The hostel is not open all year around. Minimum volunteering period is 2 month.

    Helping in welcoming guests, easy maintenance (some painting), reservations, hostel activities (kayak, mountain bike rental). Good communication and entertaining skills are definitely appreciated.

    Here you will have the chance to discover this small but very active destination. Enjoy going wind or kitesurfing, sailing, biking or hiking the valley around the lake. Domaso is around a hour from Milano or Como and not far from very famous mountain destination like St Moritz!

    Domaso is really famous in Europe for you can enjoy surfing and sailing almost everyday in the summer season. Probably our hostel will be one of the most visited place also from locals and from tourists from campsites around thank to the bar and the position right on the beach. Our idea is really to create a quite and welcoming spots for everyone wishing to enjoy at most Domaso and the lake.

    Transportation: Everyday busses goes from Domaso to the cities if needed (Como is like 1 hour by bus). It's possible to travel around by boat or ferry. From Domaso you can go south in 20-30 minutes by boat reaching the most famous place around the lake (Menaggio, Bellagio, Varenna and so on)

    Things to do: surfing, sailing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, visiting around the lake, culinary experiences
