Program Details

We ask all WP's to stay a minimum of 4 weeks but prefer longer - it takes some time to get to know London and the system. :)

The first week is training shifts during the day. Schedules are flexible and are made on a weekly basis.

Activities & Shift

Please, no sleeping during the shift. London is a big city and loads of people go in and out of the hostel.
So we need to make sure no non-guest sneaks in.


NO sleeping during the shift.
You don't need to be stuck the whole shift behind the desk but make sure anyone who comes in is a guest and the place is nice and quiet for people to sleep.
