    Hello everyone, thanks to all the amazing people that helped us in 2022!
    We will close on the 2nd November and we now have enough people to help us until we close.
    We might look for someone to be here in November to do some maintenance jobs, gardening, cleaning the house even if the hostel is closed.
    We need you to be good in house maintenance, do not apply if you don't know how to fix things around the house.
    You might have to spend a lot of time alone.
    The hostel has a great atmosphere even if its closed, the nature around here is really really good in November!
    If you like to be here in a very quite environment with the hostel completely closed so without guest but just with friends coming around let us know and we might have a place for you!


    Hello everyone!

    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 on whatapp/skype before you get here!

    Each person is welcome to stay with us minimum 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 have never cleaned a bathroom or kitchen in your life 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.

    I'm a very flexible person and I like to be as much clear as possible, I talk a lot in order to make sure you understand what needs to be done and how.
    Always be true with me, if you lie to me you're out of the hostel in seconds.

    What we need you to do is:
    (duties vary according to each person's abilities)

    Clean well the kitchen and take care of trash (we do this many times at day)
    Clean well the common areas after breakfast
    Clean well the rooms if necessary
    Taking care of the garden (only if cleaning is done)
    Fixing bikes if you know how to do it!
    Fixing things here and there ( being handy with tools is higly appreciated)
    Playing instruments and organize small performance at night if you can and if you want (not in your working hours)
    Night Guardian
    Make sure your things are not abandoned around the hostel
    Cover me when I go swimming ^_^

    Very important -------> Most of the shift are about deeply cleaning and tidyng the hostel, if you don't know how to clean or tidy up, do not apply.
    Very important ----> you need to know how to cook (how to use a knife, chopping board etc..), even simple food is fine, we mostly eat simple and natural food.
    You don't have to know how to do every single thing asked in the list above.

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

    Shift can be morning, can be afernoon, can be evening, can be nights.
    You will never work night and than the morning after unless you are a robot applying!

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

    Regarding food, everything is included but you might have to prepare it for yourself, depends on the day , you can use the kitchen to cook whenever you want, we provide vegetables, pasta, rice, 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 have discounts on tours
    You will love the nature around here:)


    See you in 2022!!!
