    >> Last minute << We are looking for one or two super friendly workawayers who can organize daily common dinners.

    We need someone proactive, responsible and reliable to help us mainly with the reception and also with the general chores around the hostel like buying groceries and fruits, help with some cleaning and changing bed sheets (we have staff specifically for this but sometimes a little help might be required), gardening or helping with maintenance in the hostel.
    We can promise you great work environment, good fun, amazing company and of course the magic of this island :).
    If this sounds like your kind of an adventure we look forward to hearing from you!!
