    Description

    me and my wife We're a couple running a small hostel in the Center of funchal .Madeira ,
    . Our town is small but lively,
    The hostel itself is a 6 Apartments with capacity of 20 people. Here we have a bit
    of everything - Singel Twin and Dubel rooms
    I am looking for volunteers who have experience with website development, online marketing, and marketing to tourism agencies, hotels, etc. I like to work with volunteers who can think outside of the box and come up with new ideas and initiatives about how to increase my visibility within the marketplace, and can also help to expand my business.
    We need help with check-ins and check-outs at the hostel, as well as laundry and bed changing and some light cleaning
    The help we need is not hard to do, but requires day-to-day attention. The main help is about keeping the place presentable and clean, getting rooms ready for the
    guests and some small tasks. Usually all the tasks don't take longer than 4 - 5 hours of help total, so there's still enough time to go around:)
    Sometimes in the night there will be late arriving guests to meet and show their rooms.
