I am Ahadu from Ethiopia, Eastern Africa. I recently opened a Hostel by renting a space from my parents. The reception from tourists is good so far but i believe it can grow more. I plan to make it a backpackers Hostel and Lounge. I currently have only 6 private rooms but have plans on expanding to dormitories. I have also put a beautiful roof terrace (also some work is still left). The location is a typical addis location so it is close to the communities. Addis Ababa is also a great city which is developing rapidly and i believe is much different than other cities. I am a lawyer by day and do the Hostel on the spare time thus is not spending as much time as i want to. We have a good property and with some little tweaks and changes, i believe i can make it much bigger than it is.
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
Travellers would get to visit Addis Ababa and Ethiopia. Ethiopia is a really gorgeous place to visit with different natural sceneries and different cultures. The Addis Ababa life will also be very fun. We do have a bar that I partly own. Travellers can help for some period and travel with other guests as well. Meeting new people from different corners will also be a benefit to travellers.
I wanted someone to help me to train my staff, to communicate better with the guests and help guests with what they want. In addition, the roof gardening and interior also need some work. Just adding pieces here and there and sharing of ideas can be helpful. The place is a well constructed place so it just need a few details to be added to make it a typical backpackers Hostel.
Travellers will be given a separate room with a private bathroom. The unit will have one single bed and I am open to suggestions from travellers on what to add in their room. There is cafe on the building so travellers will be entered into a monthly arrangement with the cafe.
Travellers can go around the city on their free time. They can also help out at other centers around the city.
