    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️We have opportunities for volunteers - help a little and experience so much of Costa Rica style.*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️

    Our hostel is known for being friendly, relaxed and very comfortable, for the people who pass by here do feel like they are at home from the first day.
    We have a social room, outdoor chill out lounge with day beds, Wi-Fi, games and books. We have an always clean and fully equipped kitchen set in a tropical rain forest environment with abundance of wild life (you can easily see monkeys around, sloths, iguanas, beautiful birds...!)
    We are within 5 minute walk to Quepos known for “local” prices and availability of restaurants, bars, shops, marina, fruits market and a bus station; ride to Manuel Antonio National Park is 10-15 minutes for 340 colones (60 cents), beautiful beaches where you can surf, party or just chill! Don’t miss out our secret waterfall!!

    The best helper in the hostel is Kendall at the maintenance, a costarican surfer/teacher and he is also a tour guide in the area. He lived and worked in many places in Costa rica so his knowledge of the country is an asset for us travelers!

    People with experience at reception are almost always needed. for the others, no worries!! We will train those with no experience, the task is easy if you know how to smile ;-)). Your positive attitude in the hostel and your ideas will be welcome! Always a new view point it’s good to be better!

    We request a minimum stay of at least 2 weeks but we prefer longer stay. Costa Rica is a Spanish speaking country, and preference will be given to volunteers that have at least an intermediate level of Spanish. But spending time here will help you to improve for sure!

    Feel free to contact us!

    In your sparetime you can go to the beach, waterfall, Quepos city, nightclubs, bars, chill, hang out, surf, explore the Area, fishing etc… And we are really sure that you won`t get bored here! =)
