Aloha! Our backpacker hostel is located directly on the edge of the the Blue Lagoon and the Pacific ocean in beautiful historic Kapa'a Town on the island of Kauai. Kapa'a was voted one of the top 10 most beautiful towns in America. Kauai is the "Garden Isle" and is by far the most beautiful of all the Hawaiian Islands, in fact more beautiful than all the others put together. Kauai has a lush tropical environment with a cooling Pacific TradeWind breeze coming through the hostel. People travel here from around the world to hike some of the most amazing trails in the world (see Na Pali Coast & Waimea Canyon). We are looking for some great helpers to join our staff! You must be outgoing, energetic, hard working, and able to show the "aloha spirit" of the island. We will set up a Facebook or Skype interview to get to meet you and see if you would be a great fit! We currently are looking for helpers with hostel experience (preferred but not necessary). we are in need of more males to fill our male volunteer dorm.
