The Exchange

Our awesome Hostel has always been known for the amazing vibe we've managed to create & maintain for more than 9 years now. Help us maintain that balance by offering Spanish lessons once or twice a day. We need truly energetic, passionate, fun people to help keep it going. As part of the team, you may be asked to help around with other afternoon tasks. You may also take other volunteer shifts to switch things up a bit during the week.

Program Details

Volunteers must take six shifts a week (roughly 24hrs/week) in exchange for free accommodation, free breakfast & free dinner, seven days a week.

Shifts are assigned every day at 10:30am at the volunteer meeting, for the next 24hrs. In order to request & receive a shift, volunteers must be present at the meeting. Shifts are assigned in order of shift-priority until all volunteers have received a shift, or no volunteer is willing to take the shift on offer.

Upon arrival, we open a ‘tab’ for you via leaving your passport with management (as travelers do at the Hostel who don’t settle up upon check-in). A reception manager will put a volunteer slip into the passport & put it into a safe we have on-site. Under special circumstances, a $100 USD deposit & alternative photo ID may be left in lieu of a passport.

This a vol. position, but extra income can be made from commissions


Activities & Shift

Basic Spanish lessons should be on offer from 2 to 6pm
This is a new position, so the schedule will depend on how travelers react to classes.

As part of the team, you may be asked to help around with other afternoon tasks, especially if no one is around for a lesson on any particular day.
While this ad is for this particular shift, you may also take other volunteer shifts to switch things up a bit during the week.


Rules

We are NOT a drug-friendly Hostel. Getting shitfaced is A-Ok, but on the legal stuff only. Anyone found with drugs will be asked to leave.
