We are a small family run backpackers hostel/outdoor centre on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales.
We are looking for happy, positive and friendly people to join us. We are situated on the Anglesey coast just 1o minutes walk from the beach and coastal path. The local town of Holyhead is a 15 min walk, which has an excellent bus and train service as well as the ferry route to Ireland. We are also only 2 hours from Chester and Liverpool. If you enjoy outdoor sports, walking, bird watching, cycling and sea kayaking then this is the place for you!

Our 70 bed Hostel also has, yurts, cabins and pods, a small bar/bistro and new for 2016 an organic allotment. Our guests range from solo travellers, to families on holidays to school groups. We have free range chickens and a dog who loves chasing a ball anywhere.

If you love the outdoors, enjoy meeting people and like the reward of hard work we would love to hear from you. Volunteers work a minimum of 5 shifts of upto 4 hours per week. Couples can have a day off together.

The duties include:
CLEANING - mostly the cleaning and maintenance of the hostel to our 4 star standard (bed changing, cleaning bathrooms, hoovering, general cleaning etc). Shifts start at 10.00am and usually finish around 14.30.
