    Hello! My name is Gene and I am from Los Angeles, California. I have a hostel, since July 2018, located in the quiet fishing village of Radožda, on Lake Ohrid in North Macedonia. It is a small hostel, offering rest and relaxation in a safe, friendly, and clean environment. Within the hostel premises are the following: garden, terrace, fully-stocked kitchen, common room, five rooms for accommodation, laundry facilities, two bathrooms, and also, stand-up paddleboards and bicycles. In the village there are beaches, hills for hiking, two markets, a bus to the city of Struga, the best fish restaurants in the country, a 13th-century cave church, and the Via Egnatia (2nd century Roman road). Detailed info below regarding tasks and activities.

    This is a seasonal hostel, open from June until October.
    With the pandemic, we only need 1 helper at a time. No couples, no friends, no exceptions.
    3-week minimum stay.
    Anyone wanting to help for 1 month or longer gets higher consideration.

    5 hours a day, 5 days a week.


    1. Cleaning.
    We are looking for people who will be thorough.
    Duties: changing beds, emptying trash bins, vacuuming and mopping floors, cleaning windows, doing laundry, cleaning the terrace and balconies, cleaning the kitchen, and other simple tasks.
    2. Socialize with guests. You don't have to be best friends with everyone, but introduce yourself and chat a little.
    Help them with info and help them with paddleboards or bicycles.
    3. Maybe some easy diy project, like painting (which also requires sanding).
    4. Maybe some easy gardening, like pulling weeds.
    5. Must be respectable, polite, friendly, and professional to everyone at all times. This is very important as one person was the opposite, and was immediately removed.
