The Experience

We need someone to take care of cleaning and housekeeping, mostly in the mornings for couple of hours to make sure the hostel spotless! As our hostel is not very big, these tasks do require about 3 hours a day (on average).

Argentina

I spent a really good time at Barbarossa Hostel. Thanks a lot to Ben (who unfortunately had to leave), Marek, Constanza, Agustina and Raphael. Thanks also a lot to Kim and Joep who opened me their doors for me and to Jamie, Dominique and Bastian for the amazing food they gave me. Nijmegen is a great little town and also is the hostel.
I had to do a bit of reception and a bit of cleaning, but no matter what your task is, it is not hard and after that you can chill all day long in their facilities.
Thanks again for everything Barbarossa Team and good luck in the future.

It was an amazing journey! Especially thanks to the other volunteers I have worked with and the restaurant staff made me feel like home. Hostel was great to stay and the city was fascinating.
My task was reception and it requires to be at the hostel 6 hours a day but since you can spend your time in the terrace, living room, or wherever you want inside the hostel during your working hours; it is not a problem. Only problem was there is no meal on monday and tuesdays there were no meals.and neither a tippend to cover this expense. Plus there weren't one beer in dinner as it was written :(

Hey Muge,

Thank you for your feedback.

We didn't write the original text ourselves, so we took out the beer part and made it more explicit the restaurant is closed two days a week.
