Celebrating our 5 year anniversary this September, we are on the must-do list for many backpackers passing through Antigua. We are close to Central Park, The Market, The Famous Arch Street and all the good party places. Our favorite place to party is on our rooftop terrace (which has the best view, hands down!!) where we serve the cheapest and best drinks in the city - not to mention hamburgers, nachos and other yummy treats. We're not the fanciest place in town but we are the friendliest and we love to help you enjoy the area and plan the rest of your trip. You may already have heard about Antigua's Famous Pub Crawl - that happens every Monday - that's us!! There is always something fun to do! Be warned - some of our volunteers end up staying in the area for months or more. It's that awesome!!

Our volunteers assist with the managers of the hostel at both the front desk and the bar. The front desk will help guests with questions and arrange shuttles to other areas of Guatemala. The bar tending volunteer will assist with making drinks, preparing menu item and other bar duties (such as carrying cases of beer or other items upstairs) and share a portion of tips and a percentage of bar sales. Shifts may begin as early as 8am or finish as late as 11pm. We are a fun and lively hostel with a bar. If you like to drink and be social, you will love it here!!! If you don't, you won't. Sorry, but we do not accept couples.
We offer a small room with three beds in the hostel. That room will be for you and up to two other volunteers. Along with this we offer a free breakfast from our menu and a lunch each day, many discounted drinks and food in the bar, discounted shuttles and reduced price laundry services.
The volunteer position is set up to be a fun workaway job in Antigua. Antigua is an expensive town by Guatemalan standards and you will not be in a position to save money here rather just live cheaply. This small city is very international and offers everything a large city can offer from restaurants to museums. We are looking for hardworking and friendly people that like to have fun and interact with people from all around the world. Fluent English is required for this position as well as INTERMEDIATE LEVEL OR BETTER SPANISH, since many of our staff and clients only speak Spanish. We regret that we cannot accept beginning Spanish speakers.
Basically are we looking for people who are hardworking, outgoing and motivated, but still enjoy getting a little crazy from time to time!!! We only accept applications from SOLO TRAVELERS, only because we are a small place and it's really tough to manage our schedule when two people need to arrive and leave at exactly the same time.
