Programa detallado

We ask for 25-30 hours of your time a week. Each week you will have 5 shifts and two days off. If you work beyond that, we will pay you for the extra hours.

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 :)

You will 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.

Actividades & Turnos

Our current schedule predicts:

- Two cleaning shifts (one in the morning, and one in the late evening)
- A dinner cooking shift 4 times a week (3 times a week offer a Paella cooking class instead of free dnner to our guests, but as a volunteer you eat for free)
- Shifts centered on reception assistance (helping out with check ins, check outs, luggage storage, running small errands and general guest inquiries)
- And of course... the FUN SHIFTS - daily nights out, salsa classes, flamenco shows, beach days and Barcelona's Magic Fountain show.


Upon arrival, we have all of our volunteers sign our set of rules, which include using your common sense, not smoking inside your room, not sleeping with the guests inside the guest rooms, upkeeping good personal hygene, and some more basic stuff.

We also ask our volunteers:

- To stays at least 2 month - less than this makes it difficult for you to get used to our hostel and Barcelona
- No drinking on the job (or drinking in moderation if you're going out with the guests)
- Being punctual and easy to contact
