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

Honestly one of the worst volunteering experiences I’ve ever had! There was 0 communication with Magdalena prior to arriving therefore no one was there to meet me at the airport. When I finally met Magdalena the next day, I felt so unwelcome. She created a very hostile environment, I’m shocked by all the reviews I read (however I was told she forces volunteers to create new accounts to upload fake reviews).The position you apply for is not what you end up doing. I left after 3 days, please message me for more information.

My two weeks at the pink hostel were full of wonderful memories! I met so many beautiful people (both staff and travelers). My tasks consisted of morning kitchen duty and afternoon adventures like kayaks and hikes. I know there are others tasks like painting and computer work but I didn’t get to do much of those. The food was great! Buffet for breakfast and dinner and Maria in the kitchen always made us amazing lunch as well. I was so lucky to have a balcony in my room with an amazing view of the sunset every night. I also was able to join the yoga classes down by the beach. Thank you Magda!

Magdalena is a good host, staff/rest of the team are very kind and welcoming. Work was a little all over the place and the schedule changed each day. Try and discuss all nuances of work exchange before hand. There was something for everyone, ranging from kayaking tours, hiking to chilling at the beach and renting a bike to go around the island. A very refreshing experience, a better time to visit would be May - September. Met so many other volunteers from around the world and a wonderful chance to learn a bit of Greek and get a taste of lovely local cuisine. Underrated island! Miss it already.

Thank you Magdalena! For me, It's great to be here in the off season! My daily routine is basically working from 9 am to 2 pm. After lunch it is our free time. I basically go to the beach alone for a walk or hike. If your purpose is to meet people from all over the world and party, it's better to come during the summer. Not only are there not many tourists in the off-season, but the nearby supermarkets are closed too. Magdalena is always helpful and kind. If you need anything, you just need to tell her and she will try to help you.
