    Good Day!

    If you are interested in joining the team, READ EVERYTHING BEFORE REPLYING:

    If you have worked / stayed in a good hostel, you already know it's like the best parts of college, without the responsibility & with a more international crowd.

    You stay for free, and included FREE EVERY DAY: All-You-Can-Make Pancake Breakfast, WIFI, parking, coffee, tea, lockers, luggage storage, laundry, movies, book exchange & most nightly activities.

    We get together every night at the outside table with drinks and music, so it is easy to make friends with staff and guests.

    A solo female volunteer told us to write on here, it is safe and fun and you will love it probably more solo than if you came with a friend, like she did!

    This is a fun city, with more to do than most people expect.

    Our past & current staff often stay longer than planned because they feel this is a great place to:

    • Make new friends & world travel contacts!

    • Improve social skills!

    • Improve English!

    • Learn / improve one of the many other languages always spoken here by native speakers!

    • Enrich social life - meet and party with young travelers from every continent!

    • Help with tours & activities!

    • Enjoy an exciting and unique lifestyle very different from the normal thing at home!

    • Explore the surrounding national parks & cities (Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Tijuana Mexico and More)!

    Without exaggeration, I can say the experience is life changing.

    Winning multiple awards & recognition from the most credible sources in the community, we are the #1 hostel in Las Vegas & we were written up as best hostel on the entire west coast by a student travel agency.

    As with most hostels, THIS IS WORK FOR FREE STAY, so if you want to cut some expenses & live for free, this could be the opportunity for you.

    About us:

    WHERE - We are located ON LAS VEGAS BLVD in Las Vegas!

    WHEN - Now!

    DOING WHAT - Housekeeping (maybe also maintenance & cooking, or very rarely front desk). We work hard & it is real work, so maybe not the best place if you are looking to just take it easy. It could also be one or a mix of housekeeping, maintenance, cooking, IT, tour leading and or front desk - whatever is needed, so be flexible.


    YOU NEED:

    1. Valid ID

    2. $50 rental deposit.

    Pay the deposit with paypal, visa or mastercard to reserve a position AFTER we approve we have a place for you.

    You will receive this $50 when you complete the time you commit to.

    Like most work exchange hostels, you work approximate 26 hours per week for completely free stay.

    You work a bit more the first 2 weeks of training.

    You do NOT need a work visa to volunteer with us if you are non-U.S. citizen.

    QUALITIES YOU MUST HAVE – initiative (doing things on your own without being told), attention to detail, reliability, ability to get along with and make a positive impression with all different personality types / cultures, ability to separate professional and personal life – more here than most places, ability to drink responsibly, English level must be good enough to effectively communicate with staff / guests, etc.

    Always REPLY– do not send new emails so our communication is on ONE EMAIL

    WHAT TO DO: Don't need resume, just answer each of the questions below. Put your answers in ALL CAPS

    Example - Where are you from - USA

    When can you start (approximate dates):

    How long would you like to work (longer is better):

    3 – You communicate almost never needing to ask ‘what’
    4 – Not native speaker, but advanced enough for front desk – understanding someone on the phone with noise distractions
