Stay in Washington DC and give us a hand welcoming our guests and taking care of our facilities
We ask for the same things you would already expect. Live-ins are asked to look after the hostel. Front desk duties are to check guests in with a smile and interact with them. Cleaning duties involve looking after the place in general and on some shifts getting down and cleaning up. Housekeeping shift also is there to help with beds and making sure hostel is not lacking anything. Don't worry, we don't work any one too hard!

We expect a caring and an outgoing individual. You are the captain of the ship when you're on shift. You are responsible for checking people in OR cleaning OR both (if really slow shift). Guest check-in and guest interactions, as well as cleaning, are the top things for us! In the end, it's all about our staff, and facilities!
Actividades & Turnos
Front Desk: Open early in the morning, answer phone, and door for guests. Always start with cleaning up the kitchen thoroughly, and a refill of the morning breakfast. Clean around the exterior, and interior for loose trash, and wipe down all common areas for any dust using bleach wipes. During the initial walk around, collect all dirty linen, and throughout the shift supervise their wash and dry cycles. Check the bathroom cleanliness and room cleanliness throughout the shift, paying attention to blinds, dust, under beds, corners, etc.
Cleaning staff: Remove all dirty linen and sheets along with front desk staff, and go "crazy" mode in bathrooms/showers. Afterward, have to check the exterior and interior for any larger trash, as well as the rooms. Next would be to make all of the beds, that need to be prepared for guests, vacuum the carpets, or mop the floors. Once the bathrooms/showers/beds/and rooms are done, move on to common areas. Sweep the steps, mop the floors, and always look for dust, dirt on surfaces, and general messes. Front desk staff starts their shift with the kitchen, cleaning staff gets in there couple hours later to clean up again. Making sure the appliances are clean, the fridges are clean, and the countertops are sprayed and scrubbed with a scrub solution. Mop the kitchen floors, and do a final walk-through for all the showers and bathrooms, now that it's been some time, to see if any touch ups are needed, and refill soap/shampoo/toilet paper.
BOTH: Sometimes when within a 7-hour front desk shift there is nearly nothing to do, staff would perform both duties, but during this shift, there would be almost no check-ins, and almost no beds to make, so it's both duties, but less intense.
Usually, there will be an assigned person to each task for the day =)
Be friendly and hard working. Please keep in mind that even in a hostel, this is still a job, and in our case, we want to be the best hostel in DC by far, so our staff has to represent =)
