El intercambio

We are one of the best ranked hostels in Barcelona- but even the best hostel sometimes needs a little work - that's why we are looking for someone who wants to stay with us for free in exchange for taking on some maintence tasks. You will be working under the watch of our maintenance staff (who only speaks Spanish) and although the job is not too demanding, we require that you have some background in this type of work.

Programa detallado

We ask for 25-30 hours of your week. If you work beyond that, we will pay you for the extra hours.

Sometimes the tasks will be rather basic - like simply passing tools or cleaning an area after work has been done. Othertimes we may ask you to paint something, help us with the AC units, send you to fix something at one of the 6 apartments we also manage, or send you to the electrodomestic store for some shopping.

We try to plan everything to the best of our ability but things at the hostel often come up unpredictedly and suddenly. We are very flexible when it comes to your time if you can also be flexible when it comes to our needs.

Actividades & Turnos

Work hours are usually 11:00 or 12:00 to 16:00 or 17:00.

You will be the maintence assistant, however there are other volunteers at the hostel who take care of different events, cooking and cleaning. You will be sharing a dorm with them and therefore get a chance to:

-Improve your English and Spanish, as most staff speak both (+ their native language)

- Learn all the secrets of this gorgeous city, full of life and artistic vibes.

- Meet people from all around the world, make friends and connections that will last forever.

- Improve your social skills. (and possibly become a great flamenco dancer :)

- Have that extra step, a credit to add to your CV that will help you to find a job when the moment (alas) will come.


Besides respecting the hostel rules, (which are nothing out of the ordinary) we ask for:
- At least 2 month stay
- No drinking on the job
- Being punctual and easy to contact
