The Experience

At our hostel, we have one objective in mind, that our guest doesn't want to leave us ever again. So that will be your task, basically. Welcome the guest, help us with housekeeping, take them for a tour of the city or for some fun gun shooting. We might even get to ask you to drive a tank sometimes. You're in? ;)

You work 2-3 hours every day. When I arrived they told me there were no days off but after a quick chat with Indre, she was happy to offer me one. The staff are very accommodating and I felt at ease until I met the hostel owner. He asked me to do a task on my first day off, implying I hadn’t done it before in an ironic and disrespectful way. I demanded an apology and he did so but then said I shouldn’t be so sensitive. Gaslighting and being talked down at for no reason is a big no-no for me so I did my last shift and left the next day. Hope he doesn’t get too sensitive about this review!

Andrea was supposed to take out the garbage, as per her requirements. She didnt do it) When asked what happened she said she took out 'some' of it ))). So then she was asked to take the rest, and that I (the owner) said I would help her finish.

She said no, that it was 'her day off'

Honestly, why debate someone to finish the job that was supposed to be done the day before. It takes 2 minutes to finish, so the second time I just told her directly to get it done. My tone was no-nonsense direct. Fair enough.

Then I helped her take the trash out, and my manager got a message complaining about my tone.

In the interest of smoothing things over, I went and apologized but I guess I didnt apologize correctly (fml :'D) - I guess it's hard to please people who "demand an apology" for being first asked then having to be told to finish their job. :'D Ah well..

My manager got another message complaining about my apology and also complaining about 'men' in general.

Bottom line is, it's too bad this went the way it did. Andrea's a nice person and we wish her a happy, healthy and bright future.

We havent had problems with volunteers before or since.)) We almost always manage to get staff that vibe with us and the fun crowd at Jimmy Jumps.

So if you are a cool, relaxed happy human come join the team!

(Please, just take the garbage out :'D)

Great hostel for guests and volunteers alike. All the staff are super friendly and welcoming. I fell into the tasks pretty easily and learnt as i went from my co workers. If i could stay forever i would. 😁

The Host:
Indre is very light-hearted and patient. Not going to lie, I was kind of sloppy on occasion, but she was understanding about it. This is THE hostel in Vilnius after all so put in the work.

The Work:
I was tasked to help clean the floors, bathrooms and make the beds with another worker. It started at noon and usually ended before 2 PM. Some days I vacuumed and mopped the floors then help make the beds; other days I cleaned toilets and the shower area then make the beds.

Overall, I had a great time and good experience working at this hostel :)
