Program Details

We expect that the volunteers stay constantly in contact with the guests. For that reason, they must be OUTGOING people, who like to talk and are not shy to approach the guests, invite them to participate of our social activities and, of course, be sure that everything will happen in the way it was planned.

Covering some shifts at the reception, volunteers must be very outgoing also to welcome properly our guests, check them out always with a smile on the face and deal with any stituation that might comes out during the shift.

We offer accomodation in a 4-bed dormitory, breakfast, bike, great working atmosphere, access to all hostel amenities and facilities, 2 to 3 days-off a week according to the monthly working schedule (DAYS-OFF ARE NOT IN THE WEEKENDS! That's when we need the most the volunteers help. So, your days-off are going to be during the week!)


Activities & Shift

MORNING SHIFT:
- 8:30 > Check-out in the common areas and bathrooms, just to be sure that everything is ok! Little cleaning tasks can be required to be done: mopping the floor, replenishing toilet paper, changing bins bags.

- 8:45 to 11:30 > Serve breakfast, clean the bar and prepare it for the next day.

EVENING SHIFT:
- 19:00 to 00:00 > According to the activities programmed, volunteers must prepare everything to MAKE IT HAPPEN and help at the bar serving guests. We serve very simple drinks and food, so no experience in bartending is required.
