  • Help


    We need some additional help in our hostel until the end of October. We are looking for someone to help out with general cleaning and in the reception. We need someone who is reliable, flexible and who enjoys meeting new people. Language-skills, computer-/website- and/or reception-skills would also be an advantage!
    Due to the great mix of nationalities our hostel attracts, it is crucial that all volunteers speak and write fluent English, to be able to help out in the reception and with any questions our guests may have.
    Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to answer any emails in other languages.
