The Experience

We are one of the best ranked hostels in Barcelona- but even the best hostel sometimes needs a little work - that's why we are looking for someone who wants to stay with us for free in exchange for taking on some maintence tasks. You will be working under the watch of our maintenance staff (who only speaks Spanish) and although the job is not too demanding, we require that you have some background in this type of work.

La mejor experiencia que tuve hasta ahora, el staff me recibió super super bien desde el momento 1, super buena onda todos, muy linda energia. El liderazgo de la manager Aleksandra es lo que mas destaca y mas me sorprendio, siempre atenta y con un super nivel de responsabilidad, de las mejores líderes que ya conoci. Hice un monton de amigos nuevos y me ayudo un monton a crecer en el area social y de autoconocimiento. Muchas gracias Ola y team Black Swan por esta experiencia MARAVILLOSA!

Voluntariar no Black swan foi um experiência incrível, a vibe do hostel é muito boa, tínhamos free dinner todos os dias e muitas festas pela cidade. Cuidado com alguns recepcionistas, as vezes eles te pedem coisas além do seu trabalho. Alguns shifts são muito longos mas tudo bem. A gerente Aleksandra é perfeita, pode contar com ela pra qualquer coisa. No geral super recomendo.

El hostel black swan es el lugar ideal si buscas divertirte, conocer la ciudad y hacer muchísimos, pero muchísimos amigos! La energía es increíble, los voluntarios me hicieron sentir en casa desde el día 1 y las tareas como voluntario son bastante sencillas, disfrute haciendo cada uno de los turnos. Hice una pequeña familia con todo el staff del hostel y me llevo muchísimos recuerdos positivos de esta experiencia ❤️Sin duda, haber elegido este hostel para hacer mi primer voluntariado fue la mejor decisión que pude haber tomado. Me divertí como nunca y me enamoré de Barcelona 🤩
