The Experience

We are looking for new volunteers to join our small family of volunteers! Our hostel has a laid back vibe and is located right between the bars of the main street and the beach. Our bar has an assortment of spirits, beers and drinks, besides that we offer hookahs. Whether you're an experienced bartender or not, you will have time to socialize with the guests of the hostel and the locals that stop by for our markets or live music events.

As my first Worldpackers experience the hostel was great. The work is easy and schedule is set out way in advance so it's easy to make plans around it, and it's a perfect location as a base. San Juan is a super fun place and I had a great time with the other volunteers, as long as you stick to the rules you'll be good. If you wanna be able to go to the beach everyday and make new connections with people (and cats - cleo owns the villa) then I'd recommend volunteering here!

I had such an amazing time volunteering at the hostel! I seriously couldn't have hoped for a better first worldpackers experience. The hostel itself is so cute and everyone I worked with was amazing. The location is great (2 minute walk from the beach) and the work is super fair and simple. I would strongly encourage anyone to come work here and to visit San Juan. It was a truly fantastic 6 weeks!

My experience in the hostel was really good! All conditions from Worldpackers website were met, there were no problems with schedule or additional chores. Work at the bar was very easy and enjoyable, however sometimes became boring, because of very few or no guests. Communication was very clear since the beginning and I never had any issues. My fellow volunteers were beautiful people, who made this experience unforgettable! The hostel is in great location surrounded by restaurants, bars and most importantly it's really close to the beach :) I had a great time 🫶🏻

Really??:) lit!!!!! That’s it??!!!!! :))



My first experience with Worldpackers was amazing from de beginning to the end. Walid made me feel super welcome and home, in two months I didn't feel homesick once. The hostel is super well located in ocean park with everything you need near by, the beach ocean park is 5 minutes walk and you also have the bus 1 minute walk away. The room is super, everybody has space for their clothes even if it's a lot of clothes like I had and free Landry once a week👌🏼 Walid's cat Cléo is so loving I miss her PR unforgettablememories Thank you again Walid for trusting me and giving me this opportunity
