Surf Hostel Work!

bazils Westport, South Island

Job Description

Do you want to spend a month surfing on the beautiful West Coast? Then come and join our hostel team!

Free staff accommodation, free surfboard and wetsuit hire, free surf lessons, kayaking, paddleboarding, mountain biking, fishing, and tonnes of fun!
Approximately 3 hours of work each day - may include cleaning&painting + if you can teach yoga or make pizzas even better! We'd love it if you can stay at least 1 month with us.

Check us out on Instagram: @bazilshostelnz or have a look at our Facebook page!

If you're not interested in doing Work Exchange, we also have great monthly surfing rates! $120 per week for a dorm with free surfing! (1 month minimum.) There is even paid work around Westport that you can apply for if interested.


Due to new government rules, we will pay you for the work you do and then you will pay us back for the Accommodation and the Surfing - so it's still the same deal, you will be woofing here and not paying for anything!

New Rules are:
"While you can include in your contract the option for a person to be given accommodation as a reward and the value of that reward is deducted from their pay, you cannot directly pay a person in accommodation. You must be able to show separation between the pay and the availability of the reward being taken up. The value of the work must be written down in the employment contract and agreed to by the employee. The employer and employee are free to enter an accommodation arrangement and deduct from wages the reasonable cost of the accommodation. Such agreements need to be in writing."

If this sounds like a fun way to spend a month, then get in touch with us soon!
