    Hello stranger and nice to meet you! Im Marco and Im about to open a Hostel in San Vito lo Capo in Sicily (this was 2016, now we are open and happy about our experience, our work and we cant wait to meet more workaway friends:) , its gonna be the first hostel in town and Im excited about it, at the same time Im a bit worried but I know time and experience will make worries disappear, the Hostel life I know it well, Ive been travelling around the world and I have been in many hostels but I never run one before.
    My grandfather gave this building to me in one of the most important place in Sicily regarding tourism, integration, nature!
    The Hostel wants to be a cultural place open also to local people, we will try to make every traveller understand the beauty of the area of San Vito lo Capo, we will try to have as much fun as we can while working and outside work, because you must love your job otherwise your wasting precious life time!
    The Hostel has got 7 rooms, awesome terrace with sea and mountain view, a vegetable garden, oranges trees, lemon trees and mandarin trees:)

    Hello everyone!
    We're now full in August and almost full in September!
    We're only looking for one GUY (cause we already have 2 girls) for the Month of September 2019

    Hello! we will need helpers that are HAPPY, happiness is a state of mind, its a way of living and loving life!

    You will be interviewed when you get here to get the position or we can talk on skype before you get here!

    Each person is welcome to stay with us 15/20 days, you can stay longer but that depends if we get along well together:)

    You must be EXTREMELY TIDY and EXTREMELY CLEAN even when you're not working, this is the most important thing to do at the hostel, we really don't tolerate dirty or messy people.
    Be always on time when it's time to work.

    I'm a very flexible person, I like to be as much clear as possible.
    Always be true with me, if you lie to me you're out of the hostel in seconds.

    We will pay each Workawayer for their work here.

    What we need you to do is:

    Help prepare di breakfast in the morning
    Clean well the kitchen after breakfast
    Clean well the common areas after breakfast
    Clean well the rooms if necessary
    Taking care of the garden
    You need to learn how to use Instagram and publish pictures =)
    Fixing bikes if you know how to do it!
    Fixing things here and there
    Playing instruments and organize small performance at night if you can
    Night Guardian
    Make sure your things are not abandoned around the hostel
    Cover me when I go swimming ^_^

    Most of the morning shift are about deeply cleaning the hostel, if you don't know how to clean, do not apply!
    You don't have to know how to do every single thing asked in this list

    RECYCLING is EXTREMELY important, you might need to take care of the rubbish and separate well
    what other "distracted" people have not well recycled!

    Its a Hostel, everyone does a bit of everything..almost:)

    You will have breakfast included but NO lunch or dinner, you can use the kitchen to cook whenever you want, we provide vegetables, pasta, coffee, sugar, salt, oil and many other ingredients!
    You will have all the Wifi you need!
    You can use one of our bike
    You will love the nature around here:)

    We need helpers mostly for the morning shift, preparing breakfast, cleaning common areas, help the guest with informations, make coffee, make sure we have everything set up for the breakfast of the day after etc...(no cleaning of the room is usually needed but it can happen)

    JULY-AUGUST-SEPTEMBER we are looking for someone that does night shift from 11pm to 4am or 11.59pm to 4.59am, if you like to work at night apply for this helping position, you must take care of the bar, the kitchen, bake cakes and other things:)
