We are situated in one of the most beautiful Victorian style heritage buildings in Cape Town. The blue and white striped iconic building is one the most photogenic landmarks, boasting a 90° street view of the ever buzzing Long street. We love to have guests, and we will do our utmost to make you feel at home and give you the best advice for an unforgettable stay with us.
Helping with Tourists
We accommodate travelers from all around the World which includes locals. The opportunity provides volunteers to interact with guests who speak a range of different languages and in turn our volunteers can learn all about their differing cultures and customs.
The proposed volunteer position is ideally suited for an individual who is energetic and passionate about tourism and travel. Duties include checking in and checking out of guests, assisting them with booking tours and dealing with enquiries including answering emails related to our guest's travel requirements. Management will be present on each shift and will be requiring the help of a volunteer. We will have a structure in place which the volunteer will abide by, which will be overseen by the manager. The successful candidate will assist with front of house and admin duties.
English and Afrikaans
The accommodation we offer is shared dormitory space and is self-catering. We provide our volunteers with a weekly nominal food allowance. We usually have more than one volunteer so we try to allocate a room which is for volunteers only. We do however request that our volunteers can be flexible on a rare occasion that the specific room type has an overbooking or in the event that there is a group booking that requires that specific room type. We will always ensure that our volunteers have a bed here by us. However keep in mind that you may be requested to move rooms when the occasion does arise.
We are centrally located close to a wide range of tourist attractions and activities and within close proximity to bus stops and the train station which offers inexpensive was to travel throughout Cape Town.
