    Hello everyone!

    We run a beach hostel in Florianopolis and look for nice people to join us and help us with some tasks.

    Located just 2 blocks from the beach, our hostel is a family run business,with a cozy and friendly environment so we like to have around people who share the same care for the place as a big family.

    We require at least 4 weeks stay. Please make sure to mention the date you are planning to come so we can check if it’s possible to host you.


    -Other small tasks in our daily routine
    (all tasks include cleaning and a bit of everything but it’s not a hard work at all) as we also have 2 employs helping out and doing the main task as they work full time

    -Fluent Portuguese or Spanish is a plus, good spoken English are required if you dont speak spanish or portuguese (you need to be able to communicate with the guests either in Portuguese, Spanish or English)


    -A smiley face =)
    -Good vibes
    -Cleanliness (we try to keep our hostel tidy and clean as much as possible so we expect helpers to have good cleaning and tidiness standards)


    -One day on, one day off (24h per week) for ex ... 8hs monday, off tuesday, 8hs wednesday, off thurday.


    -Bed in a shared dorm
    -Free wifi all over the hostel
    -Free surf boards (soft board)
    -TV with Netflix/Youtube
    -Pool table
    -Nice view of the mountains and the sunset

    Florianopolis is one of the most beautifull islands in Brazil surrounded by lakes, dunes, native forests and dozens of idyllic beaches. There are lots of outdoor activities here like surfing, hiking, soccer, capoeira, beach volleyball, beach tennis... You can also just chill in one of the many beaches around or explore the urban side of the island. Believe me, you’ll fall in love with this place and will never get bored.
