Program Details

At the hostel we have both employed full time staff and volunteers. As a volunteer you would receive training and then work the more sociable afternoon shift (16:00 - 22:00) when we have the most guests in the common room. The reception also has a bar so you will be pouring beers, making people feel at home and creating a good atmosphere.

You will stay in a staff dorm (with a maximum of 3 other staff members) and will have plenty of free time to visit the town with the friends you are sure to make here!
