Open in 2012 hostel in the center of the lovely fishing village and surfing Meca of Ericeira. The hostel is set in a fully recovered 1933 typical house with a big garden. It is the biggest and one of the best located hostels in Ericeira and works as a Surf camp as well.

We are looking for 3 helpers (minimum age 23yo) to start any time between March 12th 2016 and mid November 2016.
Standard work throughout the season is serving breakfasts, bar tending (including cleaning), gardening, reception work, occasional late check ins, set up the Friday evening photo slide show in the bar, helping on Wednesday's night barbecue, take surf photos of the guests once or twice a week, hang out with guests and cross train new arrived volunteers.
March, April are mellow months therefore the tasks will be mostly, renovations, maintenance and gardening.

The following tasks will happen out of the above working schedule:
Occasional late check ins (typically no more than twice a month/helper), helping on Wednesday's night barbecue, take surf photos of the guests once or twice a week, hang out with guests. Minimum stay is 1 month, maximum stay 1,5 month.

We will provide accommodation in a 3 bed shared room with approximately 15m2, standard breakfast during the season when breakfast is served (generally April to September) and access to the communal kitchen.

We also offer free use of bicycles when available, surf lessons whenever places are available in the surf lessons, Yoga, barbecues and laundry.
We have a very chilled vibe here but also professional. Work is easy and you can expect everything clearly defined in terms of "to dos" and "not to dos". We have plenty of returning helpers and even guests that realize that it is cooler to work with us than to be a guest!! We hope the same happens with you.
