The hostel is a two minute walk to the best in-bounds skiing in the United States at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, with tons of back-country access, too. Grand Teton National Park, featured in Rocky IV and Django Unchained, and frankly the best parts, is just one mile away. Yellowstone National Park is about a three hour drive. The Hostel offers mostly private rooms, and attracts a lot of international travelers. For 50+ years we have been a huge part of ski culture here in Jackson Hole.

The access that the Hostel in Jackson Hole has to hiking, kayaking, climbing, skiing and our cat, Lionel Richie, is pretty spectacular. There are a lot of people in Jackson Hole trying to go for casual hikes, swims, and ski tours, but also a lot of people trying to become world-class. While some of the staff like to work those second jobs that pay really well to get more money (yuck), most prefer to get after their next outdoor adventure. Being a unique lodge, the Hostel attracts a lot of cool guests, especially in winter, who can be fun to hang with. A great summer night has a lot of hanging out at our BBQ pit after a free concert at the Village Commons, or a gondola ride to cooler air and stellar views at 9000 feet.

We are looking for people that can stay through an entire season, about 5 months. The job is mostly housekeeping - cleaning rooms, bathrooms, changing sheets - and occasional maintenance projects. Typically it's four or five shifts a week. Summer is busier at around 30 hours a week, but the other seasons are more chill at about 20 hours. We start at 9:00 and go until about 1:00 to 3:00 based upon time of year. During the winter we start housekeeping at 10 to allow for a morning ski lap. We are looking for Workawayers who bring a productive attitude. With a classic older building we like to surprise guests with clean rooms and friendly, focused travel advice. Powering through the day's duties gets you out after it yourself even sooner! Those interested and able to work the front desk eventually can get trained up as positions come available.
Our staff rooms here at the Hostel have two people per room, storage space, and a bathroom with shower. We also have a staff kitchen, laundry, tea, coffee and organic coffee in the lobby, screaming-fast WiFi, access to the game room, and free parking passes for those who must bring their clown cars despite there being a great bus system in the valley. The Hostel pays $8.00 an hour, with raises over time and benefits like discounted ski passes and an end-of-season dinner in town. No one here will judge you if you put all your earnings towards climbing gear and filling out your ski quiver.
