The Experience

Our fun, friendly hostel on the beautiful island of Roatan could use your help. This volunteer position is in the early evening, from 4-7:30, so the rest of your day is free to enjoy island life. You'll be in the office to assist with any guest questions, greet arriving guests and give them a tour of the hostel, so the owner can get a little down time with her kids.

Well, it's more like a home stay, as it's situated more in a little village. Quiet; with a good breeze often in the front smoking aloud porch. Which I spent quiet a bit of time in! The kitchen facilities are fine for cooking your own food. They have three dogs there that are endearing as you get to know them. It's in a central position, with only a short mini bus ride to West End beach, or Coxen Hole. The collectivo taxi's & mini buses are cheap & regular.

Me he enamorado del lugar, de la experiencia y del hostal. Mi trabajo era corto y muy preciso, Mel es super atenta y flexible en un montón de cosas. También el hostal esta muy bien ubicado y tienes como compañeras de trabajo a Belkis y a Lindsay que son increibles, muy atentas y respetuosas. He logrado conectar con varios huespedes y aprendido mucho de ellos
