Hello, my name is Gerhard, owner of The Hotel. We are a small family run hostel located in the Austrian mountains, about 2 hours from Salzburg and 3 hours from Vienna by train.
We are very busy all year round, especially during the summer months as we are a popular stop on the Busabout route. Our guests enjoy our nearby hiking trails, taking a lovely bike ride to lake Almsee, or walking to the waterfall nearby. We also have a tennis court across the road and equipment that can be borrowed, a second bar downstairs with pool table and foosball table, plenty of bikes to hire, and beautiful river at the back of the property to cool off in. There is also a supermarket and bar a short ride into town. We are located right next to the Kasberg which is great for skiing and snowboarding in the winter months.
We are surrounded by beautiful nature and everyone who stays leaves with wonderful memories, or don't want to leave at all!
I need help with the general running of the hostel.
-helping with bookings
-serving the bar
-helping prepare and serve dinner
-interacting with guests
In exchange for help, volunteers will receive a comfortable bed with bathroom, breakfast and home cooked dinner every night as well as an hourly rate which is in line with the current minimum wage for hours worked. The hours may vary depending on how busy the hostel is and how many volunteers there are, however this will be discussed with volunteers at the time of application.
Ideally I would like two volunteers to split the work, otherwise it can be a long day. Need two or atlas one volunteer to help us immediately as the tour group season starts 1st May.
