Program Details

We offer a free bed in the mixed dorm of our hostel in exchange for doing 3-4 overnight shifts per week in the hostel. Helpers get the same benefits of guests: using overnight A/C (when not on shift), use of the full kitchen and all facilities (including the POOL), and opportunities for discounts on scuba diving lessons.

Activities & Shift

Helpers may assist with late check-ins or early check-outs, ensuring house rules are being followed during the night, ensuring general cleanliness of the hostel during the night, and generally just being a presence for other guests while receptionists are not on duty.


The same house rules of all guests apply to helpers in this position. If applying as a couple, we cannot ensure that you will be working the same shifts.
