Looking for 1 volunteer to join us this sunny winter in La Palma (Canary Islands)

UPDATE: Looking for 1 volunteer to join our staff starting mid-December for at least 1 month and a half.

La Palma volunteer project /hostel exchange โ€“ Proactive and social people, chill hostel not a party hostel. Normally we receive guests over 30 years old. Better if it’s a girl to balance the team and fluent Spanish.


there is an active volcano in La Palma right now, 95% of the island have a normal life.

Be part of our Hostel on the magic Island of La Palma!

We are 2 friends Mane (Chilean) and Ale (Italian) in our early 30’s, that decided to open a Hostel on the beautiful Island of La Palma after some years of travelling/ living around the world and having experiences as volunteers in different kinds of projects.
We are hardworking and put our heart and soul into this project, we are the kind of people that when we do something we like to do it well, and we expect the same from our future volunteers ๐Ÿ™‚

Our hostel is very new, we opened in February 2019, with a capacity for 28 people, spacious dorms, clean bathrooms, some common areas where you can relax (library and 2 little patios) and socialize with other travellers in the main common room (living/dining room).
We are located right in the centre of Los Llanos de Aridane, close to everything; bars, restaurants, supermarkets and the main bus station where you can easily take all the connections to discover the treasures of this amazing Island!



We are looking for helpers from around the world to stay with us! We normally form a 4 people team (2 girls and 2 boys).

For now, we need help with cleaning, tidying, socialising with our guests and some reception tasks (check in- check out), opening and closing common areas, taking care of the plants, small maintenance tasks. Every Friday Sangria night, we expect our volunteers to be active in sharing with the guests.
