  • Description


    If you're the type of person who loves to be surrounded by a scenic and lively backdrop while helping people get familiar with an awesome town, we are the place for you! We are a small hostel (40 beds) in the middle of downtown Bozeman. We are looking for friendly, active and fun people to come work part-time in exchange for a place to stay and some food. Our location is right in the center of town. It is a very short walk to all the popular nightlight, restaurants and other attractions. We have Bridger Bowl and Big Sky to ski and snowboard at (a bus goes to these ski resorts for those who do not have a car) and Yellowstone National Park is about an hour away. Montana State University adds overs 17,000 students and a young pulse to our town during the school year along with fun sports events and concerts. We ask that you are an easy-going and dynamic person while also having a solid work-ethic. Outdoor enthusiasts welcome!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We meet many travelers from all over the world! We enjoy engagement with many different people from many different cultures and backgrounds. Bozeman also has its own distinct pulse. Winter is full of skiing, snowboarding and special events that bring in many tourists from all walks of life. Fall brings college football games and several events in correlation to our campus (Montana State University). Spring brings the fresh green scenery and the awakening of Yellowstone National Park (around 1.5 hours away and we try to get all of our workers to YNP at least once). Summer is our busiest season and it is the time when festivals and tourism give Bozeman a fun, lively and exciting vibe.

    It is easy, but fun. I mostly need help with someone watching the front desk/ checking guests in. Some hours per week will be spent cleaning the hostel. We may need other basic help, but this is mainly a laid-back job with 20 hours per week.

  • Accommodation


    You will be either in a private or shared room, depending on availability. There is free WiFi, free food, linens included, tv area, library, coin-operated laundry (we provide quarters and detergent to workers), and dorm-style shared restrooms. We also have free bike rentals. I treat my staff very well but expect workers to return the favor by investing their committed time to the job when "on-shift". If you are put into a 3-bed dorm, it will likely be with another worker and your hours will be 20/week. If three people are in a 3-bed dorm, the hours of work per week will be decreased. During some seasons and circumstances, we are able to put you in a private room upon availability. Please note that co-habitation is extremely important and we look for volunteers who clean up after themselves and live well with others!

    UPDATE: May 10-August 31 we likely will have to fill rooms to capacity for staff with no cutting of hours.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Bozeman and the surrounding area are rich in outdoor activities. Any traveler looking to hike, camp, fish, ski, snowboard, snowmobile, and partake in countless other activities are blessed to find themselves in an area like Bozeman. Many festivals, such as the Sweetpea Festival, Music on Main and other events, come through Bozeman and are within walking distance from our hostel. The nightlife of Bozeman is condensed into the East Main downtown district, right where we are located. Art galleries and fine restaurants are in surplus in our area. We pride ourselves on treating our staff as family. We don't expect you to come and only work. We WANT you to explore Bozeman and the surrounding area and we try to give you the tools to do so! This area is one of the most incredible and we want our volunteers to leave with friends and memories.
