We are a small Backpackers in Livingstone, which love our planet and all the humans on it :)
There is a great social vibe and usually everyone goes out together at night or even during the day. Having a lot of local knowledge we make sure everyone finds the balance most suitable for them between relaxing/partying or soaking in the culture in Livingstone.
At our hostels our staff are like a family who enjoy working and having fun together each day. We’re looking for happy smiling staff who like meeting new people and showing them a good time. When you leave you will have a new family in Livingstone. Our staff do the basic cleaning in the hostel (rooms and showers), make the beds s.
In return for just a few hours of work each shift, you get:
-a lot of fun
-Free culture exchange
We are also looking for somebody who would like to help out in Marketing, managing the hostel and coordinating our volunteer projects in longer terms, it would be an advantage if you know something about marketing and have a camera and a laptop. The work would be mostly coordination, calling cabs, managing the staff, checking bookings, talk and look for work for our volunteers, book activities for the clients etc. We would organize the working permit if you decide to stay longer on a working basis.
