Program Details

We are looking for someone to help us with day shifts at our reception. We need an active and enthusiastic person to help out at reception. The work will be walking guests to their rooms after check ins, answering the doorbell and helping with any little tasks that may need doing. There's nothing too hard and you'll be trained for everything beforehand, so don't worry! The No. 1 thing we expect from volunteers though is simply that they are friendly and outgoing when interacting with guests! :)

We look for volunteers who are fun and sociable people, but also want to do a good job and always try their best! If this sounds like you, then get in touch with us!

In return for your help we will provide you with a bed in our volunteers apartment, 20€ food (or beer) money each week, laundry services, discount or free activities daily, and free use of our hostel amenities.

Activities & Shift

Our volunteers work 20 hours per week at the main reception, split into 5 x 4 hour shifts. The shifts are flexible and are set by the volunteers themselves each week. If you really wanted to you could do all your shifts in a couple of days, leaving you with the rest of the week free to explore Budapest!

The other 3 hours work will be in assisting or hosting one of our daily activities, but it isn't really work at all :) We have food events, pub quizzes, drinking games, yoga classes, movie nights, and more! If you love to cook that's awesome! Each week we all get together and discuss who wants to help with which activity which day, or maybe even host their own event if there's a good idea :)
