I love the Greek islands (and Corfu in particular) and I’m all in favour of staying in quirky hostels to experience great fun and also as a budget measure. Sunrock on Corfu is a great example of a backpackers’ hostel in a great location.

Did you know that they have a scheme whereby you can stay absolutely free of charge? You have to exchange a little of your labour of course, but staying free in such a fabulous spot means that a little work is absolutely no problem at all.

And the work is hardly onerous.

All you’re expected to do is a little general hostel-type work. This ‘pay your way’ scheme is suitable for people who would like to stay in the hostel for a month or more.

What’s expected of you? Well, firstly you have to commit to the full-time period. Then you’ll be expected to join in with the others (regular staff and other volunteers) performing non-skilled hospitality duties such as greeting guests, working behind the bar, kitchen work and so on.
