    We are looking for 5 hrs / 5 days a week reception and cleaning work in exchange for accommodation (4 bed staff dorm), for no less than one month period. We need regular staff help: The tasks are varied, all take care of everything (cleaning, care of guests, management of online booking sites, etc). We are a very social hostel and it is important that you want to share moments and experiences with people around the world (even when you are not working!). Please, we need at least intermediate Spanish and English!

    We have been closed for 2 years cause of the covid and we are reopening ! So we need loving and supporting volunteers to join us in this delicate moment. We are not offering breakfast now but we invite asado in case we do it, you guys have coffee and tea always available and if you want to organice dinners with guests we can figure out so you dont have to pay that, of course.

    when we have enough volunteers we ask for only 4 shifts a week and we split the rest of the hours just in case something happen out of reception time.


    Estamos buscando intercambio de trabajo por alojamiento por lapsos no inferiores a un mes. Pedimos cinco días de la semana cinco horas de trabajo a cambio de una cama en nuestro dormi de voluntarios (que cuenta con 4 camas). Buscamos integrantes del staff regular: Las tareas son variadas, todos nos encargamos de todo (limpieza, atención de los huéspedes, manejo de las páginas de reserva por internet, etc). Es excluyente la simpatía y las ganas de intercambiar momentos y experiencias con gente de todo el mundo.

    Estamos reabriendo en marzo luego de haber estado cerrados dos años por la pandemia. Tenemos ganas de encontrar voluntarios que puedan acompañarnos en este momento de transicion tan importante para nosotros :)
