Activities & Shift

Volunteers can help at different times of the day.

The help includes reception, cleaning, answering phone and door, managing the computer system and giving directions, recommendations and orientation to the guests. You can have other tasks or activities, we can work around that, but it is very important that volunteers know how to do all shifts.

There is zero tolerance to any type of drugs, sex in the hostel or heavy drinking. We give preference to travelers who speak some Spanish and English since this makes it easier for guests as well as for volunteers to communicate.
