    Program Details

    Volunteers are an indispensable part of our team, however we understand that it is very important for you to have the freedom to travel and explore other places while working with us. 

    That´s why we have created a flexible program, which has 2 people covering the same reception shift during the night, at the hostel. One volunteer will be working a full week, Monday to Sunday, while the other has a full week free of work. Each week they exchange positions, allowing them both to have enough free time to travel and get to know Costa Rica. 

    Despite having a very comfortable schedule, being a receptionist requires a minimum of one week training, we are looking only for people who are willing to commit to work with us for a minimum time of 3 months. Definitely commitment is the number one quality we look for in our team members.

    Activities & Shifts

    One Week On, One Week Off: 

    Each volunteer must work 6 hours a day, from 4pm to 10pm, for a full week (Monday to Sunday) and then enjoy another week completely free of work.


    The use of illegal substances is strictly prohibited in our property. 

    It is not allowed to work under alcohol effects or any illegal substances.

     The entry of people from outside the hostel is not permitted after 10pm
