****** We are looking for volunteers to join us for the following dates: February 27th, 2020 (or a few days before/after that. We just got an opening for one spot which does not happen very often this time of the year. We are also looking for volunteers later this month as well as in March, April and after that. But if you are available right now: even better. All kinds of jobs - mainly support for our housekeeping team (making beds, cleaning communal areas, bathrooms and kitchen, folding laundry). But also gardening, recycling, etc. or help with fixing our bikes or organizing events for our guests (movie night, jam night, cooking nights - whatever you feel like sharing), small maintenance jobs, etc. (whatever your skills) ******** (Important: All our staff rooms are shared rooms. We are not able to accommodate couples).

Uh, and who are we??? We are an award-winning, family-friendly, mid-size guesthouse/hostel in beautiful little Tofino. We are NOT a party hostel.

Our hostel is the perfect spot for exploring the Tofino/ Clayoquot Sound area. We are ideally located on the water in downtown Tofino (one million dollar view!) with breath-taking views of Clayoquot Sound and the 5,000-year-old village of Opitsat, a community of the Tla-o-qui-aht people and Nuu-chah-nulth nation.

There is tons to do in Tofino: Surfing, fishing, wildlife tours (bear & whale), storm watching, beachcombing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking through old growth rainforest - you name it! Or you can explore Tofino and its exciting arts, culture and restaurant scene. There is something here for everybody.

Volunteering with us is fun and very rewarding: We have free bikes for volunteers), and lots of other benefits (discounted adventure tours - kayaking, hot springs tour, canoeing, discounted surf and SUP lessons, free pancakes, coffee and tea, staff events and other perks.

We also take great pride in providing a green friendly guesthouse/hostel - we recycle, compost and strive to use sustainable cleaning products whenever possible.

We are a small, super friendly, family-like team from all around the world (all in our mid-twenties to mid/end thirties). We focus on providing a family oriented and laid back environment where guests can relax and meet fellow travelers from Canada and all around the world. We are NOT (!) a party place but provide the perfect spot to meet people interested in the outdoors, nature, culture and all the beautiful things Tofino and this part of Vancouver Island has to offer.

If this sounds like a place you might want to join - send us a message and we will see if your profile is a fit for us :)
