Corfu Backpacker's Hostel

Beach proximity, Live the island life, Cultural experience, Explore the nature, Language exchange, local food , free use of our kayaks and tours on your time off and much more! Our team usually consists of: - People who are good at socializing and also manual tasks. For example carpentry, painting, general maintenance, etc. Duties change every day so you would need to be flexible in that regard, but the constant change would certainly ensure that your work is never boring! -People to be in charge of housekeeping and online marketing, social media, ect...

Me and my family have always lived in Corfu nd we have a hospitality and hostel business near the beach. We are always looking for willing and happy volunteers to help getting the place ready for the season. We need help with web marketing, computer work, some house work and maintenance, some furniture and room painting, activity promoting and little odd jobs that need to be done around the place. If anyone has any plastering or brick laying experience would be wonderful. We offer shared room, meals, wifi and we are near the beach and free use of kayaking. We need help all year round. We are also affiliated and combined with the pink palace hotel and hostel. All volunteers must have travel insurance . Thank you for looking into our profile

I had a blast at The pink palace! Magdalena is a lovely woman and is great fun. I met so many awesome volunteers, guests and locals. I wish I had more time to spend here. I will definitely come back when it's the party season. But even with just a few people at the hostel the atmosphere is great. This was my first volunteering and I can't believe I got so lucky. I hope to come back soon :)

Hello there!! The experience was very interested, just let me tell you that the first day you need to be clear about the hours per day and also the job because sometimes you don’t know what is exactly your tasks. The beach is amazing and you have a lot of time to enjoy differents place’s. Cheers 🍻

Everybody’s very friendly over there, so you’ll definitely make new friends. Overall the work load wasn’t much, simple tasks easily done. We had plenty of time to enjoy the island. The food was nice . And the host is very welcoming and helpful !

Corfu is a beautiful island, and Agios Gordios one of the most beautiful beaches there. Magda is a great person, helped me when I needed something about tour, information and everything more. I did canoeing, swimming, ride a bike, walk in the beaches, enjoying the sunsets, and all. Magda has another volunteer there, his name is Alysson. Alysson helped me a lot, everyday. She is a great person too. A special friend! I recommend! Thanks for everything and see you soon :)

Social Media and Photography ended up in being personal work for Magdalena mainly gardening and sanding/painting. Although I was told before coming that Jobs would vary due to the current virus situation, considering the fact that there was already a permanent staff member doing photography and social media, I felt mislead. Jobs are randomly assigned daily. Hours are usually not assigned until either the night before or first thing in the morning. Asides from a few unwelcoming members of the maintenance staff, the workers here were quite nice. Contact for more as reviews have limits.

Dear Dylan,
It hurts me to read your review, we were unable to work for a long time due to the virus quarantine which started right after you arrived, i supported you and the other volunteers all this time with free sea view place and home cooked meals, lots of free time to enjoy the beach, relax and work on your online job you were doing as a web developer and some days you helped me with some painting and some gardening, due to the virus we could not be close and work on the website you originally came to help me with, i enjoyed my time in the garden with you and it hurts me that you left with out telling me how you felt.
Have safe travels and stay safe, i hope to see you again sometime in the future.


Perfect for you if you're looking for
