MaximoHostel Owner
We are looking for enthusiastic and self-motivated volunteers with strong interpersonal skills to assist with the hostel's daily duties, but most importantly to engage with the guests and provide an excellent sociable experience. A basic understanding of Spanish is a must and being able to organize on and off site activities is a big plus.Read more
