Pura Vida

We are a hostel in the beach, close to the city center, you will easily find any kind of shops and services.
La Cicer, the surfing part of the famous Las Canteras beach is just around the corner.
With a nice walk on the promenade you can easily get to El Confital, which is a little piece of nature by the city. Perfect for surfing, bodyboarding, running, exercising, meditation or practicing yoga. Our strength is our location and the vibes.

If this is not your first hostel experience, you already know you will be part of a family, if this is going to be your first adventure, dont worry, we are going to take care of you :)

I spent one month at Pura Vida and believe this volunteer role gives you the opportunity to explore Gran Canaria as you are only required to work 3 days a week. The location of the hostel is great as it is only a few minutes walk to the beach! The work is very simple and straightforward mainly consisting of housekeeping/cleaning and reception tasks. This role is also a great chance to practice either Spanish or English😊

Foi uma experiência incrível. Trabalhar três dias por semana permitiu um equilíbrio perfeito entre contribuir para a dinâmica do hostel e aproveitar ao máximo a beleza da ilha.
Ja sinto falta do Miguel e das pessoas incríveis que conheci no Pura Vida.
Definitivamente, uma experiência que levarei para toda a vida 😍💖

My volunteering experience at Pura Vida was amazing! The host, travelers, and other volunteers over time felt like family - Pura Vida seemed like home. When it comes to practicalities: arranging trip was easy; work was not difficult;the communication from the host is respectful, transparent, welcoming. The climate here is wonderful, and I have seen so many beautiful places, created memories that will last a lifetime.. There are so many things to experience and memories to make. I recommend this place with my whole heart, and a big thanks to the host for creating such a wonderful place!💙

Volunteering at Pura Vida was one of the best experiences I had. The communication with the host is open and honest, the work plan is discussed clearly before your arrival and most importantly it’s respected. The shifts are easy and you can manage them flexibly, so you’ll have plenty of free time to do whatever you plan to do. I really felt at home quickly thanks to the volunteers, the host, and the people of the hostel. It was my first volunteering and I didn’t expect all the sharing, the caring, and the connections I had. Apply!! You’ll find so much more than what you’re looking for :)
