My name is Aga i started to build a ecological hostel but needed to move, luckly i managed to take the project with me to a new location so now we are located in a different spot, but with the same ideas, on a friend's land.

The basics are covered: hammock or tent to sleep,
You get 2 meals a day for your work for around 4-5 hours a day
(means breakfast and lunch)
You want to have dinner, you have to work more or you buy your own food.
Compost toilet, bath in the Creek with our lovely fish or in our new made shower (bucket shower) ^^
?breakfast 6:45-7:45
?lunch 12:00-13:00
?dinner around 18:00-19:00

We (means; 27chickens,6dogs,2horses,1cat, me and mother nature) share food, water and space, so you must love animals, not just tolerate them. As the dogs are always there, When you sleep, walk, run, poop and eat.. Especially when you eat ^, ^

We don't use chemicals as we share the water, no one wants to drink your shampoo or soap.. Especially the fish =)
So there are many alternative
Some of them I wrote below otherwise Google can sirve you for more information.

The basic rules are simple;
-You use something, take care of it!
(means; clean the tent, dishes and the area after you leave)
-you take a tool, bring it back where it belongs
-you start a task, finish it if not today, tomorrow
-do your dishes, dishwasher is broke
-you see garbage, pick it up
-recycling recycling recycling
-you go shopping take a bag, don't bring a new plastic bag with you
-don't kill a spider because you are afraid, fear is not an excuse to kill
-don't waste food, water or energy
And respect mother nature and all her children as you are not her only child.

Basic duties ;
Helping with the animals
Helping cleaning the area

As some of the volunteers have not quite understood the 'jungle' part I will explain a but more.
Jungle/nature means bugs, a lot of bugs..
If you feel like using "OFF" then off and you go..
As we are trying to rase bees we do not tolerate any ANY kind of chemicals
Coconut oil or tea tree oil are good repellants too. You don't like the smell of the oils Google other eco options.
Also are long sleeves a good protection.
So flip flops are good on the beach, here you might need something more covering.
Long pans, long sleeves, good shoes, something to cover your head.. This is the best outfit to work.

Ps. When I send you the directions please read them. Its all written down how to get there. From where to where, where to get out and how far to walk.
You choose if you take the bus, car, ride, horse, Bike or walk.. ^, ^
