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

Shifts are normally four hours a day, six days a week, but since what we need in this case is content, then it depends on whether you're a photographer or a videographer.

In the case of a Photographer, we'd need you to submit between 4 and 10 publishable pictures a day of our beach trips, our evening activities, the people, the facilities, and our nights out.

In the case of a videographer, we could work on two videos a week: one under a minute, and one under four minutes, showcasing the same things mentioned above: our beach trips, our evening activities, the people, the facilities, our nights out, on top of the activities that can be done in the region.


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.
