Fun&Friendly Hostel in Barcelona is looking for Hostel Volunteer

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are one of the best ranked hostels in Barcelona - but we could never get there without the help of our amazing volunteers who help us run the place!

    As a volunteer you will recieve a bed and a two meals a day, every day in exchange for about 25 hours of your time a week. There are several different shifts available and we use a rotative schedule that changes a little every week meaning no one is stuck cleaning forever :)

    We try to plan everything to the best of our ability but things at the hostel often come up unpredictedly and suddenly. We are very flexible when it comes to your time if you can also be flexible when it comes to our needs :)

    You will get a chance to:
    -Improve your English and Spanish, as most staff speak both (+ their native language)
    - Learn all the secrets of this gorgeous city, full of life and artistic vibes.
    - Meet people from all around the world, make friends and connections that will last forever.
    - Improve your social skills. (and possibly become a great flamenco dancer :)
    - Have that extra step, a credit to add to your CV that will help you to find a job when the moment (alas) will come.

    Our current schedule predicts:
    - Two cleaning shifts (one in the morning, and one in the late evening)
    - A dinner cooking shift 4 times a week (3 times a week offer a Paella cooking class instead of free dnner to our guests, but as a volunteer you eat for free)
    - Shifts centered on reception assistance (helping out with check ins, check outs, luggage storage, running small errands and general guest inquiries)
    - And of course... the FUN SHIFTS - daily nights out, salsa classes, flamenco shows, beach days and Barcelona's Magic Fountain show.
