The Experience

Help us to take care of our guests, since some of them leave early morning. Some help is also needed on other tasks: cleaning the kitchen, organise the laundry and keep the main door closed at all times. Guests some times need help at night: they check-out early morning, need towels, toilet paper, extra blankets, etc. The main task is to help them to be more comfortable. Note: Your help will also be needed any other day for 3 hours only.

I had an amazing experience in Puerta Vieja Hostel, it's one of the best hostel that I've seen! The atmosphere and the people are amazing. Daniel and all the staff are really good persons and looks like a family. There's a lot of activities and people from all over the world. It's a really good place to work and enjoy. I spent three unforgottable weeks there and I recommend for everyone!

The staff is super friendly and the hostel vibe is amazing. Every night there is a different event at the bar what makes your staying there so much fun. I made a lot of new friends including the workers and volunteers.
They respected the schedules and accurately described what I will be getting when volunteering (food, days off etc). There is time for party and time for work so If you are a responsible person and you want to have fun and make new friends I would definitely recommend this place to you.

Thank you guys for everything and hope to comeback one day :)
