Program Details

Volunteers are an indispensable part of our team, however we understand that it is very important for you to have the freedom to travel and explore other places while working with us.

That´s why we have created a flexible program, which has 2 persons to cover the same reception shift during the night at the hostel. Where one volunteer will be working a full week, from Monday to Sunday, while the other has a full week free of work. Each week they exchange positions, allowing them both to have enough free time to travel and get to know Costa Rica.

Despite having a very comfortable schedule, being a receptionist requires a minimum of one week trainning, we are looking only for people who are willing to commit to work with us for a minimum time of 3 months. Definitely commitment is the number one quality I'm looking for in my team.

Activities & Shift

One Week On, One Week Off:

Each volunteer must work 6 hours a day, from 4pm to 10pm, for a full week from Monday to Sunday and then enjoy another week completely free of work.
