Each person is welcome to stay with us 10/20 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, your own space inside the hostel must be tidy and clean all the time. We constatly check that the dorm where you will sleep is clean and tidy, if not you might be asked to leave.
Be always on time when it's time to work.
Sorry for being so serioud about this topic but being clean is a sign of respect for the people that are sharing the space with you.
We like efficent and fast working people, people that do not need to ask what to do next, we need people who see what needs to be done and do it without asking, Obviously for the first few days we will explain everything to you =)
At the end of the day the hostel it's a house.
If you don't know how to take care of a house meticulously, do not apply.
If you are not tidy, do not apply.
If you leave your stuff hanging everywhere, on the floor, on other people's bed, do not apply.
If you stink because you don't take care of yourself, do not apply.
If you like to take a break every 5 minutes, do not apply.
If you must stop your work to talk to somebody, do not apply.
It's a waste of time if you write us that you are open minded and easy going, it means nothing to us =)
