    We are currently looking to fill the following positions:

    - Maintenance Person
    - Housekeeping Supervisor
    - Lead Housekeeper

    Friendly personality and attention to detail are a must!

    When contacting us please let us know your availability, tell us a bit about yourself, and explain why you feel you'd be a good fit.

    ...

    We are a 24 room mid-sized hostel and Inn, which tends to be much more on the adventurer side rather then a "Party" destination. That being said, every day we're full of exciting and adventurous people of all ages who are coming to experience Squamish. We're passionate about the surrounding wilderness, have a very Canadian Lodge'ish vibe, and are the perfect place for you to experience all that Squamish and British Columbia have to offer.

    Please read on for our complete Workaway listing..

    Squamish is the Outdoor Recreational Capital of Canada. You'll have access to the best wilderness on offer right in your backyard! Literally some of the best Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Kite boarding, Windsurfing, hiking, mountaineering, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, slack-lining in all of North America! All is easily accessible and within 15 minutes of where we are located.

    We're also right downtown so cafes, bus stops, grocery stores, restaurants and pubs are all within a few minutes walk from our door. We don't have a restaurant (so you're responsible for your own food) but we do have an awesome kitchen for you to cook and we have a weekly group dinner.

    Cheers!
