    Description

    Hi there,
    We are a popular hostel and a guesthouse for young travelers.
    Our place is well-known as we accommodate a lot of travelers from all over the world since 2003.
    We have an on-site bar/restaurant, pool table, and TV's lounge, so it's a great and fun place, lots of locals and expats are coming to hang out with us too.
    Our hostel is a fun place to work as a staff member, we have staff members working with us from at least 4 different countries, which means a lot of stories, banter, fun, and atmosphere.

    WE PAY!
    Yes, we are actually paying money per shift for people who work and spend their time to help our business, because we believe that is how it supposed to be.
    Apart of that, we can provide accommodation free of charge in one of the A/C dorms, discount on meals and drinks when off working time, and meals and drinks provided during the shift.
    Also, you will meet a lot of interesting people who are travelling through Kampot, you will gain interesting experience of managing busy hostel (mby not so busy during rain season).
    You will work with our lovely Cambodian staff, and listen to stories of foreign people (some of them will seem completely mad, but they are not) who lived here long time.

    THIS IS ACTUAL PAID JOB.
    AT LEAST 1.5-2 MONTHS COMMITMENT.

    SORRY, WE CANNOT ACCEPT COUPLES
    PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU ARE ALREADY IN CAMBODIA.
    __________________________
    Please apply only if you can arrive in Kampot no later than 1 WEEK FROM NOW. We cannot schedule paid staff member more than that ahead, due to applicants from outside of Workaway.
    __________________________
    We would require to do 3-4 shifts a week, 8h per shift (7am-3pm or 3pm-11pm (sometimes 12 pm)), so you can still have time for yourself and for exploring the lovely town of Kampot.

    We are looking for 1-2 young people to help us with reception/shift manager job, preferably with previous hospitality experience, and most important - have a great music taste!
    That requires good English language skill, both - reading/writing and speaking.
    It's quite an admin job, therefore a lot of procedures have to be done, such as checking people in, marking them in our books and online channel management system. Handling cash and cooperating with our lovely Cambodian staff, whose English might be not as good.
    A person has to be stress tolerant, as sometimes it might be just a bit very busy, when a lot of people are coming and leaving at the same time, getting their bus and their breakfast at a right time. MULTITASKING ANG GOOD MATH are very important for us.

    Please get in touch with us if you are interested to stay here FOR AT LEAST 1.5-2 months, we cannot host people for any shorter time than that, as this job requires some training. Respect our time and we will respect you :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Mostly all our positions are always taken by Cambodian people, we provide 25 jobs in our hostel for locals and only 3 to 6 western staff members at a time through the year.
    People are traveling, they like Kampot and sometimes decide to stay here for some time (one lovely French guy stayed here for 1,5 year when actually came just for a couple of months). We help them to have a place to sleep and get some cash to cover their expenses here and in exchange, they help to take off the pressure of our manager and not make him work 7 days a week :D

    In any case, Kampot is a great place to be, and all our staff are happy and seem love to work here.
    There's a lot of places to see around, a great river with beautiful sunsets and mountain views, many other hostels owned by our friends where we like to go sometimes, plenty of restaurants and places to hang out, number of nice cafes and restaurants.
    One can rent a scooter through our friend Mr Bison (his name is Sarun), who has a travel agency just across the road from the hostel, and enjoy the trips around.

    Please get in touch with us if you are interested to stay here for at least 1-2 months, we cannot host people for any shorter time than that, as this job requires some training. Respect our time and we will respect you :)
