Start from August onwards!

We are an independent family run backpackers in Torquay in the beautiful English Riviera.

We host travellers from all over the world here and Devon is a great base to explore the beautiful South West of England. We are looking for outgoing fun people. If English is not your first language dont worry we can help you practise as well as advise you on language schools you can attend.

We ask for 18 hours per week in exchange for dormitory accommodation, internet access, laundry etc. We ask people stay for a minimum of 1 month.
We can also help in the search for full time work in Torquay if you wish to stay a little longer.

We do not supply any meals but there is a self catering kitchen with everything you would need that you can use 24 hours per day.

We have been hosting helpers for over 5 years now and have met some of the best people through this site. Please note this may not be for everybody. We want people to enjoy their experience with us more than anything. Ideally we want outgoing friendly people who like to meet people from all around the world. We would not classify ourselves as a party hostel but we organise events on a regular basis that involve alcohol so please keep this in mind when applying.

Normally our helpers work 3 x 6 hour shifts with 4 days off. We try our best to schedule people to suit them so if you want to go on trips away from Torquay we can accommodate that. The work is a mixture of housekeeping and reception. Normally people work by themselves so will be dealing with guests, checking in/out and anything else that arises.

Torquay itself is one of the most popular seaside resorts in the UK. We have the mildest climate in the UK with summer temperatures normally in the mid - high 20s. We are a 5 minute walk from Abbey Sands beach and there are 6 other beaches within walking distance. The town boasts a huge variety of different restaurants, bars, clubs so something to satisfy everyone.

We run two hostels which accommodates approx 90 guests. We normally have 20-30 long term guests from all over the world that work or study in Torquay. We try to create an amazing atmosphere that you will not find in any other hostel.

We have had a really good response and have a number of people lined up to come stay with us, so please let us know when you want to come to Torquay and how long you can stay for.

Look forward to hearing from you.
