  • Description

    Description

    Hi,
    My husband and I run a small backpackers/B&B in Petra and we'd welcome some help with the everyday running of reception/odd jobs
    We're located in the centre of the town, so easy access to shops, restaurants and only 10min walk to the Old City of Petra.
    We run an informal friendly place and we'd be happy to show you round the town and introduce you to the life.

    We can offer you a free ensuite room with meals in exchange for 5 hours/5 days a week.
    Generally you'd be doing a bit of everything - either mornings 6.30-11.30am, afternoons 1-6pm or evenings 6.30-11.30pm. It's fairly easy to pick up. Mornings would be checking people out and helping with breakfast and the washing-up; helping with laundry, doing some ironing, maybe some cleaning.
    Afternoons are usually very quiet as most people are in Petra, and so maybe a few check-ins, talking to people when they return from Petra about their day, helping with any enquiries; tidying; making sure everything is ready for breakfast the next day, watering the plants etc
    Evenings, again chatting to the guests, helping them with onward travel, maybe the odd check-in; sweeping & mopping reception, emptying the bins, making sure the kitchen is tidy for the next day.

    What else ...

    Petra is a very quiet little town and would suit people who have a hobby or something to study in their free time. Apart from visiting Petra (about 2 or 3 days) there isn't alot else to do in the town. Walking, horse-riding, studying arabic, reading or visiting other places in Jordan (Aqaba, Wadi Rum). There's no real night-life or bars, alcohol is really expensive (6JD a pint).
