Join an amazing team @ Big Fish Hostel, Budapest Hungary.

The Exchange

The main task of each volunteer is to have a great time in the city, interacting with guests and other volunteers. Taking them out, organizing activities and being themselves. Other than that it is, the shiftwork, making beds, doing some lightcleaning and tidying up of the place. We work very closely together as a team, helping each other out all the time regardless of who is on shift. The hostel is our home and we treat it that way! :)
