Hostel Arco Elis

Our hostel is a fun and welcoming place from people from all over the world. Most our staff speak English, Spanish and their mother tongue, so it's a great place to practice your language skills!

We offer all of our volunteers a comofortable bed in a shared dorm, free dinner every day, as well as a whole array of fun activities throughout the week.

You will make new friends, learn new skills and fall in love with one of the most fascinating cities that Europe has to offer!

Our international staff is one of the best aspects of our hostel! The relationship between the volunteers and the rest of our staff (managers and receptionists) is rooted in mutual respect. We value good communication, making sure of have weekly meetings and help to get you acclimatized! Is very important for our team to have a great comunication feedback, energy to work and share great moments with the guests and staff.

This was my first worldpackers position and wow... what an awesome start! The hostel was social, friendly, staff were lovely, and the other volunteers were loads of fun! What was given in exchange for us working was definitely fair. The hostel is located in a really good spot which made exploring the city very easy (most things are within walking distance). Something to be mindful of, one of the shifts is cooking as the hostel provides free vegetarian dinners for everyone so it's definitely handy if you have an idea on how to cook! Overall, I really enjoyed my time and would 100% recommend :)

That was my first experience volunteering and I really enjoyed!!!
I learned a lot in my time here, improve my english and learned a little of spanish :)
We had morning shifts, cooking shifts (keep that in mind if you come here), cleaning shifts and other activities.
The volunteers were all amazing, we went out together all time, to parties, parks, museums and I really love meeting them all and knowing about the diferent cultures, it was like a family!!! Also all the recepcionists were super nice and helped me every time I needed.
I met some incredible that I will never forget!!! <3

I had a really good time at the hostel! I was really immersed in the Spanish culture, especially among the staff, and due to this acquired a lot of language skills ;) The hostel is located in a beautiful part of town and within walking distance of most sights and both the staff and the volunteers made me feel right at home. Would definitely recommend!

I had my first volunteer stay at the Black Swan Hostel and it was great. I received a very warm welcome from Santiago and Lukas and all the other employees were also very nice. The hostel is nice and modern, the working hours are variable and the other volunteers welcomed me really well. The best thing was that after a short time we were able to do a lot of free time activities such as playing football with the permanent receptionists, especially Naza and Nico. I'd love to come back.
Dankeschön 😎
