-in the time you don't work it is still considered that if you live here that you make sure you are a good roommate, who will clean after yourself or help another roommate with something if necessary (for example if you are free but a guest asks you some questions, you won't ignore them)
-depending on the days and how many volunteers we have, there are 2 or 3 shifts, usually:
morning - 10-15 h
middle - 15-20h
afternoon - 18-23h

Activities & Shift

-you help at the reception, housekeeping or bar depending on the day
-usually morning shift helps with cleaning and reception, with guests, checking things around the hostel, help with breakfast (like refilling or putting everything away), depending what is going on in the hostel on the day, but mostly you are meant to be the receptionists right hand
-middle and afternoon shifts usually have similar things to do, like: help the receptionist with anything necessary,help with check-ins, show the guests around,do rounds (go around the hostel to check if everything's ok, checking the bathrooms etc)
-help at the evening event if necessary
