The Experience

We need help with exterior painting/sealing of stairs and porches. It's about 3 hours of helping a day (hours are flexible, if you'd rather paint all day long, and then have a few days off), in exchange for a free dorm stay and wi-fi. The hostel has a great pool and patio, and we're a 3 min walk from the beach, with snorkeling about a 200 meter swim from shore.
