Help

Work exchange at our hostel consist of a variety of tasks. The main duty is from 10 till required 5 days a week and includes the following:
Ensuring breakfast is topped up, whilst interacting with guests. Making the guest feel welcome is an important aspect of work ex duties as well as promoting any daily activities the hostel has on offer throughout the day.
Running any errands the hostel requires. This usually only occurs once or twice a week and is typically go to the bank which is only a short walk away.
at 12 when breakfast finishes, you need to pack up all the breakfast food and ensure the kitchen is clean.
Once all the above is done the primary role begins of making the beds. The work is very easy as all the general cleaning of the room is done by other staff members. Therefore all is required is to simply put new sheets on the required beds and fold the blankets neatly. Finally if the reception needs help with some daily duties, you will have to help them. Once all the required needs are made the work is finished for the day. Due to the variance of amount of people checking out each day the work load fluctuates thus altering the amount of hours required to work. However we will not ask for more than 5 hours daily.

What else ...

The benefits of working with our Hostel includes receiving free accommodation, free laundry, and discounts on our dinners and breakfast. Also at the hostel bar the drinks are really cheap for staff (0.50 euros for a sangria or beer). Also the 2 days off are consecutive so it is easy to travel for a few nights (ask for it and we will get something free around)

At our hostel the staff are all really friendly and do nice things such as cook lunch for one another and socialize outside work together!
