Help out at a comfortable and homey hostel in Sofia, Bulgaria


The Exchange

The help we need is not hard to do, but requires day-to-day attention. The main help is about keeping the place presentable and clean, getting rooms ready for the guests, watching reception and some small tasks. Usually all the tasks don't take longer than 5 hours (cleaning takes 1-2 hours the rest of the time is reception), so there's still enough time to go around. We need people who are hard workers, responsible, and friendly.

There will be one more volunteer so you can change each other. Main activities are reception work and helping guests with all the needed. Cleaning will take 2 hours a day. You will share these responsibilities with one more person so it won't be hard.
