The Experience

We are looking for a friendly volunteer to help us with maintainance! We always host 6 volunteers and provide accommodation. We are located just 5 minutes from the beach, and our mission is to create an alternative to the unfair mass tourism industry, which brought little benefits for local people.

ATLAS is an incredible space! Love tall the volunteers, great team attittude. We often cooked together, had jamming sessions and dancing workshops. Manuel organizes social events, which you are free to attend as a volunteer. The working hours are well divided, you can always talk with Paolo or others to adapt the schedule to your wishes. If there is anything, you can always talk to Shanti and Manuel and try to work the situation out.

overall, I was staying here for more than 2 months, which says a lot. Lots of love for Gran Canaria and ATLAS.

From the first moment it really felt like home. It’s such a special place with beautiful people. Atlas offers something for everyone, good place to meet other travellers, practise different sports (surfing, climbing, hiking etc) and learn more about yourself. As Atlas has connections with other hostels, it makes it very easy to travel around the island, discovering beautiful spots and and enjoying the nature. Truly amazing experience and definitely will come back someday!

ATLAS is a special place where you can learn new things from talented people and be exposed to beautiful events and concerts. The managers are super nice, and the hostel attracts very interesting people from all around the world. The location is ideal within a quiet neighbourhood and only 10 minutes’ walk to a nice section of Las Canteras beach and Las Palmas. As a volunteer you will also get discount with local car rental and surf rental places. ATLAS has a partner hostel in the mountains where volunteers can stay for free during their off days which is a great bonus.

Atlas fue una linda experiencia! la recomiendo porque me sentí muy cómodo, libre y acompañada para poder explorar la isla.. luego de las tareas que son en su mayoría muy livianas me iba siempre a la playa que está a pocas calles del hostel.. en verdad es imposible no estar a gusto en ese contexto.. gracias Shanti espero regresar algún día :)
