The Exchange

So we are a hostel. And a hostel is the place we go to have a good time when travelling. Reception is the heart of the hostel and for everybody to have fun, there's lots of backstage work. This position is all about that: taking care of the whole backstage to help people have the time of their lives. And if you love people, you pretty much know that if everyone is having their best time because of your hard job, you are the one who wins ;)
