Program Details

We expect you to be responsible and attentive while working. It's also important that the volunteers get along with the guests while staying with us,creating a good atmosphere and not engaging in behaviours that can compromise the hostel or the volunteer itself.We are flexible,if it's possible we can adjust the schedule accordingly to your needs. We expect the same from you if something doesn't goes the way we planned.

Activities & Shift

It's a 4 hours shift, from 11h until 15h, 5 days a week and with 2 sequential days off (according to the arrival date). You will help cleaning the common areas (bathrooms, kitchen, rooftop, garden); the private rooms and dorms. We have 4 different properties and you will be where you help is needed most.


This will be your house as well, so we expect you to be polite, respectful, tidy and clean.
This creates a good atmosphere and implies some sense of responsibility in the guests (if they see you care, they will also care)
