One of the best experiences I could ever wish for! The hostel has an amazing vibe and the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming! You can really feel that they want you to have the best time in Vienna. I often feel like I'm getting more from the hostel than I'm giving back to them! You feel like on hollidays forever, working only few days per week having the rest of your time to enjoy the city by foot or with the amazing volunteers bikes. You can spend your time chilling around the common area, gardens and at the bar. If you want to, you can end up learning how to prepare some drinks!
The most lovely crazy Taiwanese-Brazilian girl I had the pleasure to meet!! :) Very responsible, committed, efficient, creative and joyful. Always with a smile on her face and ready to jump in and help! She also spoiled us and the guests with lots of yummy Brazilian food. The halloween fingers were simply the best! :D She made cry when she left and the hostel doors will always be open for her whenever she visits Vienna again!
Your first day is a free day. That allows you to settle in. You get a room with your peers rather than the guests so that is a cool experience. The work is fair and simple to pick up on. The Staff is warm and even if you can't communicate with everyone, a smile speaks through it all. Your bosses are fun and always wondering what they can do to make the hostel better. You are allowed to set up your working schedule with you peers so yes. you can have 4 days off in a row and make up those days later. You get a meal that is really tough to get tired of. 2 months there and I never disliked it.
To be part of an international team, get to know people from all over the world and experience the everyday life of the hostel business in Vienna´s oldest and best hostel!About the host
