The Experience

We need volunteers to cover some reception shifts, so we need nice and friendly people for that :) Good English is a must have, experience with costumer service is a plus. Bring your energy and new ideas for the hostel. We offer free accommodation, breakfast, yoga classes and a nice social hostel to meet awesome people. Wif is great btw, 20Mb/s is really good, but also we have a greater connection with the staff and other guests of our hostel.

Mandala is such an amazing experience! Diego, Luz. Lydia and Sander make you feel at home right away. Bounding depends a lot on how you interact, and they just make it so easy for you to be yourself and become part of the hostel and their lives. The energy in the hostel is amazing and the job is pretty easy. Luz made huge changes for me to be able to work and study so i can tell that she is very careful with the person that chooses to stay. I'm forever thankful with them because they made my first time as a volunteer a very pleasant one. Thank you, Mandala. <3

When I arrived in Mandala Hostel they welcomed me with open arms! As a volunteer, you are not just going to work at the reception, but also in the garden. Diego, the host,is such a nice person! He explained me a lot about the consciousness of the nature and the spiritual impact on our daily life. With the stuff there, you are going to feel like a member in a family. Which is amazing!! Furthermore the beds are the most comfortable! Trust me, you are not going to regret the time there!!
P.s.: The hot chocolate for breakfast is AMAZING!!
