    It is a way to enter 100% in the textile environment in Buenos Aires. They will work hard with people from the area and learn the abc of the textile industry. We are a group of friends that is carrying out a sports brand, it will be a rich experience in meeting people from other places and having time to get to know the city. Also in the hostel you can
    meet people and do activities with other workaways and passengers
    The hostel has a great location near 9 de julio street and florida street, 1 square from galerias pacifico, 5 min walk to puerto madero, near a lot of buses and subway stiations.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Work in season is arduous and demanding. Free days that are on Sundays and after the end of the season can take two weeks of rest in the hostel
    It is a seasonal job being March April May and June months with many hours of work
    ideal to save money and keep traveling once the season is over!.
    Know we will try to keep the business working the compleatly year, so we are opening new position from july until dicember!
    We lovely wait for you!
    Kevin
