The Experience

Would you like to help us with housecleaning and laundry while you practice your Spanish with our friendly staff in the Hostel? It's a good opportunity to share time with local people staff and another volunteers. If you prefer to help us by mornings so you can enjoy the evenings then this is a good activity to help us with.
