The Experience

We have a small, fun hostel, and take on one volunteer per month that helps out with cleaning the bathrooms and common areas, cleaning private accommodations after guests have departed, and generally helping out around the hostel with laundry, gardening, greeting new guests. It's an average of 3 hours of helping a day, in exchange for a dorm stay and wi-fi. We have a pool and patio, and are about a 3 min walk to the beach with great snorkeling.
