Program Details

How is the volunteer's life at the hostel ?
During the first week, the most important think is for you to see if you like the hostel, the work and if you feel that it is a good fit for you ! The management team will also make sure that you show up on time and are friendly with your fellow volunteers and the guests.

What is the program ?
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).
