The business has been established for 15 years but has been marketed as a Hostel for the last two seasons. We are expecting a continuing upward trend in occupancy and are looking for social volunteers who understand and enjoy hostels and how they work.

The area offers a real cultural experience with historic attractions and towns nearby, and adventures such as the Camino del Rey which is only 30 minutes away, Game of Thrones museum in Osuna. We are looking for the successful applicants to continue creating the fun vibe of the hostel.

To be clear, the hostel is small, in a rural location with 18-20 beds – a combination of dorms and private rooms – offering a small and intimate experience unlike some inner city multi-dorm hostels with hundreds of beds.

We can offer Free Accommodation, a small food allowance, use of the staff kitchen, lounge personal space and bedroom/dormitory, plus shared living/communal areas with WiFi included. The facilities can of course be used by the staff including the swimming pool.

We expect the managers to lead and care for our team of volunteers, and the manager and assistant managers will be expected to be part of finding, interviewing and appointing of suitable, respectable volunteers to form part of their team. Volunteers teams will be expected to clean and prepare rooms as well as performing any additional light maintenance duties, and to interact with guests to enhance the guest experience under the guidance of the management team. Of course enjoying your time in Spain with us is a must, our managers are good at making you feel welcome and valued.

This opportunity is an amazing chance to experience the “real, traditional Spain”. Mixing with the local town inhabitants, visiting local bars, cafes and restaurants offers a genuine experience and the chance to create some amazing memories.
