Auberge Bishop

Bishop Hostel is constituted of international travelers who wish to stay in Montreal for a couple of weeks before continuing on with their travels.

We provide a “work for stay” program which breaks down like this: the volunteers are not getting paid, but they receive free dormitory accommodation, free breakfast and a free access to our facilities (WiFi, laundry, etc.). In exchange, we're expecting that each volunteer work 23 hours a week. These hours are divided through different shifts, which are mainly housekeeping positions (Cleaning, preparation of the breakfast). The idea of the shifts is that you roam, wander, float and bounce around the hostel keeping the place looking sparkly and clean, and fixing problems before the guests find them!

Excellent experience. Good atmosphere in the hostel and among the staff and volunteers. Shifts are very good organized and you always know what to do and what they expect from you. Location is the best possible, right in the middle of downtown. I had time for partying, doing sightseen and also chilling. For me, one good thing was the bedroom for volunteers. Even though we were a few people sharing the same room, everybody was respectful with the others time for resting.

Volunteering at Auberge Bishop was an enriching experience. I was able to meet people from all over the world and make friends. Staff was very friendly, roles very well defined and work hours were respected. They were also flexible to make changes in the work schedule, according to volunteer's availability.
