    Description

    Currently we are looking for new helpers.

    Our little community and house with a capacity of 28 people was created in order to promote and make it easier for young people to travel and learn to grow as a person by this international and multi-cultural experience.

    Due to our international atmosphere, but still connected to the local scene, we are the perfect place for cultural exchange and we can offer very valueble learning opportunities and insider knowledge into a succefull hostel.

    Our hostel is located in a not very touristy area in the middle of Las Palmas - so its the perfect environment to dive into the local scene, learn spanish and live the "real" canarian life. We focuse on having team members from as many different countries as possible so the cultural exchange between other helpers as well as the international guests (We had guests from more than 100 countries and helpers from another 20 different countries) is brought to a maximum.

    If you are really motivated to help us to improove our hostel and live with the guest and help them to have a nice time, then YES, this is your chance to escape the cold european weather!

    You will get insides in a very well working and popular hostel, lots of new friends and amazing city and island to be in change.

    Write us an email and we will contact you if there is any availability.

    MAXIMUM STAY AT OUR HOSTEL IS 2 MONTHS: Why 2 months? On the long run living together in the same house with the guests can also be tiring. We only want highly motivated and happy people, thats why your stay here normally (if you are not an exceptional good helper) is limited to 2 months.

    Also we would like to inform you that we are always doing a trial period of 1-2 weeks. If we realize that your effort & motivation is not as high as expected/promised, we will end the cooperation earlier than agreed.

    We also organise trips to explore the island, BBQs, movie nights, tapas nights, sport activities, so happy creative people who like to clean, take care of the house and who are ready to become an animators too are always welcome here in Las Palmas.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    One of the main benefits for our helpers will be the international atmosphere in our beach hostel and the possibility to train not only many different languages but especially also have the opportunity to practice their spanish in a very un-touristy environment like the city of Las Palmas.

    The columns of our philosophe are TRUST & FREEDOM. We give our helpers a lot of both of them so they can learn to trust in their own strenghts and develop a health way how to deal with responsability. We think its very important to find the strenghts of every single helper in order them a stronger believe in themselves and give them the right tools to find themselves and be happy persons in their life. We believe that in quite a few former helpers we achieved it.

    We are not afraid of sharing a lot of information about how to run a successful hostel and are always willing to encourage & support our helpers if they want to open their own one (which also already happened in the past).

    We offer the chance to visit other hostels on the island for FREE - with this we want to promote and support the mobility of the young people and make it easier for them to explore the island on their own and learn how to orientate in a new environment.

    Furthermore, our helpers have the opportunity to participate in free activities, such as surfing, climbing, hiking, bungee jumping, and many more. These free activities are organized by local companies we work with closely.

    Also our helpers will get discounts with our partner surfschool and befriended car rental.
