Work exchange for accommodation in South America

We’re always looking for volunteers to work shifts in the hostel in exchange for food and lodging. Areas in which we accept helpers are: bar & events in the evenings, reception in the mornings or in the afternoons, and events in the afternoons.

In exchange, we offer a free bed in a shared dorm room, breakfast, and some money for lunch. For volunteers, we require a minimum stay of at least two weeks, but longer stays are our preference, and several months to a year is fine (as there is no upper limit). If you work 7 days, you have an additional 3 days of lodging, to accomodate excursions.

(If you are traveling for a longer period of time and would like to apply for a standard job, please specify as such in your email, but in that case we would want a commitment of 6 months to a year.)
