Program Details

Benita is a hostel in Buenos Aires that opened in Spring last year and is already bursting at the seams with all the backpacker scene has to offer in BA! At the moment, we have a reasonably intimate set up, with only three of us running the show.
However, Benita is growing fast and furiously and summer is coming, so we need another person to join the team.
Benita is a medium sized hostel (we have space for 29 people) that strikes the perfect balance between friendly, communal and chilled without being a crazed 24h party, so we are looking for someone who is similarly natured. Ideally, you'd speak good English and have enough Spanish skills to be able to semi-competently communicate with the guests. Of course the usual social, friendly, clean, respectful, ability to apply common sense are all qualities we are also looking for. Nos vemos!

Activities & Shift

Now on to the matters at hand. You will typically start at 11am and spend 1- 2 hours making the beds. Some days will be busy, some days will be quiet. Then you will help us in reception for 3-4 hours in the evenings. The work will be flexible with some days more focused on house work and others on reception work.
