Activities & Shift

You will work 3 eight hour shifts per week, which will give you 4 days off per week with plenty of time to discover the island. If you help us receiving guests you should also get informed about activities so you can recommend them to the guests. As you will be the first point of contact you should be friendly and outgoing. Volunteers help us 24 hours per week and we offer accomodation in shared staff rooms (2 or 4 beds). We host 12 volunteers and 32 guests.
NOTE THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOSTEL! As we are a cultural association respecting our neighbours is very important to us! We strictly respect quiet hours from 22:00 to 7:00. However, if you want to go out there are many bars, restaurants and clubs nearby.
We hosted more than 100 international volunteers within the last 4 years. What people like about our place is the great atmosphere and the great people they meet.
