Program Details

We expect you to help with housework and cleaning after people have checked out each morning. We expect a good knowledge of english so you can answer questions for guests and communicate with our other staff members. You can expect at least one morning off a week, sometimes two. Most importantly, we expect you to have fun and enjoy the city while you're here! This means you will average about four hours of work per day and the rest of the day is up to you to explore our city!

Activities & Shift

You will arrive at 10a depending on the day and help with the morning/cleaning shift. This means making beds, sweeping, cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, and taking out the trashes. On average this shift should only be a few hours however if it is slow and your hours for the week are being far from met because of this, you may be asked to do additional projects around the hostel such as greeting guests, helping with check in and other tasks around the hostel.
