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.
21 hours of help per week

You'll be responsible for cleaning the common areas daily (4 bathrooms, communal kitchen), helping out when someone departs to change out their sheets etc, and assist with laundry, gardening, occasionally covering the office if I have to run errands. Usually the hours are in the morning, starting around 9 or 10 once people have gone out for the day.
Non-hostel guests are not permitted on property, so if you're making friends/boyfriends, you can meet with them elsewhere. This rule is in place for the security and comfort of all our guests. No drugs are permitted (including marijuana). As a volunteer, you represent the hostel, and are expected to behave in a way that positively reflects on the hostel.
