Activities & Shift

A typical day starts around 0900, we don't have nightshifts. Making and having coffee/breakfast with the guests, light maintenance around the house (checking bathrooms, is the garden clean/swept, check if the laundry is dry in the terrace etc.). Around noon we prepare the beds and clean the bathrooms properly and that's mostly it.


1. loud people, people who drink alot - we are not a party hostel and this is a prerequisite - respect for the people and the environment we live in,that's why above is no go 2. Good working habits, an active mindset - we can't work with people who need to be told every 5 minutes what to do. Self initiative is one of the most valued attributes here. 3. People with a weed habit - can't do. 4. Common sense in general is very appreciated :)
