The Experience

The help would be 2 nights a week and sometimes 4 hours during one day During this shifts you should take a look to the tidiness of our kitchen, bathrooms and reception; be available to the guests to open the door when they come back at night, give them useful information if they need, make check ins and early check outs, taking care of the guests and keep them silent if necessary (i.e. if they come back really happy after a night out)

My experience in Shiado Hostel was the first one as a volunteer and it was amazing! The hostel itself is super cozy and it makes you feel at home, is comfortable and great located. The host, Paulo, is a very transparent person, easy to work with and very direct, which makes understanding the job extremely easy! But above all he is a great person that makes the experience a great one! The staff is constantly changing so it keeps a fresh renewed atmosphere at all times! The tasks were easy, even though the nightshift can get a little long hehehe but it makes you have time to know the city!!
