  • Description


    Hello my name is Miriam; I am originally from Eastern Europe - Slovakia. At very young age I moved to USA to do my studies and build a successful carrier in IT. But I got very tired of not having a "life" and very little time to travel. And since I love to travel and I explored 1/2 the world I decided to get my "life" back! So I packed 2 suitcases, my surfboard and my cat and we moved to Costa Rica where I opened one of the best hostels in Tamarindo. Being here for 8 years we have one of the best hostels in Tamarindo and we are always looking for happy, positive, smiling volunteers that like to assist us and our Costa Rican full time staff running this amazing place.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In exchange for your time we offer you an amazing cultural experience in one of the most beautiful country in Central America - Costa Rica, and one of the most popular towns for surfing and beach going in Tamarindo. One of the great benefits working with us in the hostel is that you will meet amazing backpackers from many countries and many cultures and languages from all over the world. You will learn about their countries and cultures and make lasting friendships. In addition to meeting people from all over the world you will have the opportunities to get to know our full time Costa Rican staff, where you can practice your newly acquired Spanish Skills, you can learn directly from them what it means to live "pura vida" style, you can learn from their culture and exchange culinary experiences. They are the best to teach you how to make the perfect plantains, chifrito, gallo pinto and many others. Our full time Costa Rican Employees we have 2 ladies, who work in the kitchen area, reception and cleaning area, they are truly an amazing team and you will get to assist them in their work and make their experience even more enriching. In Tamarindo we have one of the best surfing spots in Costa Rica, amazing night life and fabulous beaches around.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are very flexible with schedule and we prefer that you travel and explore, we are also mature and fun outgoing people and we do not like politics and drama. No drugs allowed during work hours, what you do outside of hostel is your business as long as you come to shift clean and clear to work :) This position will not work for people that are looking to party and "swing the work by". We do like to have a great time but responsibility comes first. We are super laid back and VERY easy going.... so working with us is fun and you always become part of the "family" long as the job is done right :)

    Also please DO NOT reach out to us via website of the hostels, please reach out to us via workaway. Thank you.
