Some gardening when the weather is warmer. Job is all year round 7 days a week.. Some days are just light duties depending on number of guests arrival and departure.

The ideal person or persons should be non-smoker, non-drinker, no drugs, as we are a kid and family friendly house.

Winter months are cruisey with usually one or two busy days a week... so you wont be working all day.

You will get Dormitory boarding only, bring your own sleeping bags and you can join us at meals each day, we take turns cooking. you will be sharing a room with one to up to 4 people.

The kitchen has limited use, you can join us at meal times, or cook your own meals - feel at home :) so if we are cooking you are more then welcome to join us for meals, or you can make your own simple meals that don't require too much cooking.
We are not fussy and eat fish, gluten, veges and meat eaters, we do not wish to cater for different diets, we are too busy to fuss about our volunteers, as we have too many guests, so if you have NO dietary requirements then apply.

We would like independent Volunteers that are keen to know the environment and stay for a minimum of 1 - 4 months. We will pay for some of your tours to get yourself familiar with Icelandic Nature. We will orientate you around the city.

Ideally we are looking for someone from during the winter season, Nov-April. but soetimes we require help in May to Oct.
