A Workaway role is a great way to see Puerto Rico, be part of the culture, meet interesting new people and pick up some new skills along the way too!
Situated in a prime location in an authentic barrio, Casa Santurce is a short walk to the beach, restaurants and popular nightlife spots. It is on a direct bus route to Old San Juan and easily accessible from the main attractions and activities in the area.
We pride ourselves on being an awesome place to be for both guests and staff and we hope you’ll feel that as soon as you walk in the door. We want you to feel like you’re staying at a home away from home with the rest of the team being your new extended family!

Volunteering with us
We’re all about creating a great energy and vibe at the hostel and like to get to know our guests, chat with them, party with them, take them out – basically join them in having a great time while they’re in Puerto Rico.

Our popular communal kitchen has a covered terrace dining area. Enjoy your meal in one of our hammock chairs in the fresh air with views to Condado Lagoon!

What we need from you
We need you to be 100% committed to being part of the team while you’re here; that means being warm and friendly with plenty of smiles all the time. As part of the staff our guests will often want to hang out or ask your advice on what there is to do in the area. You’re seen as a representative of us so even if you’re not on shift but are on or around the property we’d ask that you’re always willing to help in a chirpy, welcoming way.
Each Workawayer is required to work 25 hours per week spread over 5 shifts of 5 hours each. The roster is pretty flexible so if you’d like to plan a long weekend away, or have something on one night the Manager will try and help you out provided you give plenty of notice!
We also expect you to respect your fellow staff by cleaning up after yourself, taking initiative to chip in when required and taking a proactive approach to making sure you’ve covered all the training and understand our policies and procedures.
Mostly we want you to have fun while having a great experience! It’s an open environment so you can let us know if you have any concerns or questions and we’ll do the same with you. If you’re enjoying yourself our guests can sense it and they love being a part of that too.
