Villa Viva Guesthouse

We are Villa Viva, the new home and creative hub of Viva con Agua South Africa. We are part of the Viva con Agua Family (VcA) which is an organization committed to establishing and access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene. We follow the vision Water for ALL and ALL for Water! Villa Viva is an innovative social business, a platform and meeting place for networking, creative work and social business approaches. Majority of Villa Viva Backpack profits will go to our water projects. We are inspired and want to inspire others through the universal languages of Music, Art and Sport. We believe in the power of togetherness, collaboration and synergies in order to make a difference in providing the basic human right of water. We are located right in the heart and hustle of The Mother City, Cape Town.

Viva con Agua stands for connection & communication, creativity & joy, sustainability & WASH (water, sanitation Hygiene) projects. Being part of Viva con Agua volunteer family and living in our newly opened Villa Viva Backpackers accommodation will enable you to create and shape the start of Viva con Agua South Africa with your own authentic contribution and footprint. Spend your weekdays supporting the creation of Villa Viva Backpack, connect with our guests, organize events, paint walls, create marketing campaigns or help us run our social media. On top of that you can help us run our social programmes and projects like Football 4 Wash training with pupils, campaign for the human right of water or run our Wash Bus for the homeless. After the purposeful activity is done, you can spend weekends hiking Table Mountain, surfing the waves of the Atlantic ocean, or enjoying Cape Town's world-famous night life. The city is a melting pot for young people from all over the world, and you are bound to find yourself in the company of lifelong friends.

This is a wonderful place. They have a great atmosphere. There are a lot Of different things to do in the area. This staff is more than welcome to help you out which is a very good thing. There is a lady that absolutely was way more helpful than she need to be and I really did love working with her. Her name is Pumla. I feel like anyone would feel very welcome there.

Had an incredible time at Villa Viva! Can't recommend it enough. The home away from home feeling is always something that's hard to recreate, but they've managed to do it beautifully. Location could not be more perfect. Close to restaurants, bars, markets and hikes. The cozy - home vibe makes it impossible not to make friends. Do yourself a favour and apply now.

Villa Viva is a beautiful Guest House. It is in a great location where everything is easy to get to, & you have a beautiful view of Table Mountain. You will meet so many people of different cultures & make life long friends.
The staff is friendly & there is always something to do. However your working hours are dedicated to bar or reception. It's not a social media position. Every team member is free to post on the Instagram story whenever, & you may post a weekly predetermined post on their Instagram. Your time is not dedicated to working on their social media, video making, graphic design

My first Worldpackers experience volunteering at The Backpack hostel was amazing. You will meet people from all around the world and get to know different cultures. You will also have contact with locals since Lee and part of the staff are from Cape Town. The facilities of the hostel and the permanent staff team are incredible. I strongly recommend this hostel!! Thank you so much to everyone!!
