The Experience

Buscamos un [email protected] para realizar el turno de noche. Se trata de un Surf Hostel pequeño y familiar así que es bastante tranquilo. La labor consiste en recibir los huéspedes que puedan llegar tarde, realizarles el check-in, asignarle la habitación o cama hacer los early check outs y estar pendiente de ayudar a los huéspedes en cualquier cosa que puedan necesitar. Y lo más importante, control del Hostel durante las horas de descanso.

It could be worst than it was. But still the time I paid there it wasn’t worth.
Unfortunately the room for the volunteers was nasty. And besides that the colleagues were quit rude. Basically it was more uncomfortable than welcoming.

The basis of coexistence is in oneself and not to blame others or space.
0 commitment on your part and attitude from the first moment despite being in low season and not having to do much to do ...
It is funny that you criticize the space of the volunteers without having used it, since you complained from the beginning and we located you in the best place of the hostel.
Thank you for leaving us on the fifth day of your arrival without notice and avoiding having to tell you to leave yourself.

It was an amazing experience, had no way to be better. The best hostel I have ever seen, good vibes, the hosts David and Aritz are wonderful people and they have always been very good to me. San Sebastian is also an incredible place and I dont want to leave. It was amazing, I recommend this experience to everyone!

This was the absolute best first worldpackers experience. Within a few days I really felt like family and part of the group. There are great vibes in the hostel and whether you surf or not you will have a blast. The tasks are simple and fair. The owners, Aritz and David, are two of the coolest guys I've ever met. I learned a lot from them and grew to admire them as well. San Sebastian is an amazing city and can't wait to go back. Until then, AGUR!

About a year ago I had the chance to be a part of Surfing Etxea's team and I just can't recommend it enough for volunteering! Apart from the fact that San Sebastian is an amazing city with endless activities and a lot of fun year long, this hostel is a great place to work at. The atmosphere is always fun and welcoming and you will for sure meet lots of interesting people every day. Regarding the tasks; they're quite easy to do and not hard at all. Last but not least Aritz and David definitely made my stay even better and I'm super thankful! :D

My time at Surfing Etxea was laid back and chill. Aritz and David are the best, making sure your stay is as great as possible. The hostel itself is super clean and possibly the nicest hostel I have ever been in. Much like working at a flat at a friends house. Perfect location for surfing or enjoying the beach and a ten minute walk to the old town. The job is really easy, especially in the off season. Wouldn't recommend being in San Seb in November because of all the rain but still a great time in a great city!
