Program Details

We are proud of our volunteers and want you to be proud of being a part of out team too. I gained my experience of running a hostel through volunteering my self and Im happy to share all my knowledge if you are interested. You need to be able to look around and do things that is needed without someone always telling you what to do. So a some sort of own responsabillity is needed. Dont worry we will always help out :) we also hang out with the volunteers at another close by hostel and we have lots of fun together. We all love travelling!


Activities & Shift

the island is all about the nature. dont freak out about the 30 min drive to nearest town. all though there is lots of villages around and we are in the centre of one called löttorp. we have a grocery store, 3 bars and restaurants, a bakery and some other shops. beautiful beaches are near by. we work maximum 5 hours a day 5 days a week. Together we work as a team. Ill take you arund the island and show you some cool places.


Rules

since we are a hotel I expect you to be clean and tidy infront of the guests. We will give you working shirts. we will have about 5 volunteers in the summer and we have two different dorms for our volunteers. you need to be ok with sharing a room with both boys and girls.
