The Experience

We have been open for guests since 2008. During the high season from April till September we are fairly busy due to the size of our hostel, 106 beds. The hostel is located 5 min walking distance to one of the most famous beaches in Holland, with a newly developed boulevard Scheveningen receives a huge amount of tourists and surfers through the beach seasons.

The cozy cabin they promote is a dirty, cold, holed cabin in their terrace, used as storage room and surrounded by dangerous metal pieces that hit each other and the cabin when there's wind. No bathroom. No fridge
They get good reviews online by giving away free stuff to people, like caps.
They claim every day if you own them 30 minutes work (due to their Assistant arriving late!!!), but when I did more, it was good I didn't "check the clock"
"I'm a business man; if you don't like it, you're welcome to go" - Manager words to me, when I asked for a room

Katja and Maika are very cool giving a warm welcome since my arrival.
Also all the staff and other volunteers, especially Prince... thanks.
The hostel has a cozy lounge, music playing, snooker and professional kitchen where you can prepare your meals, the market is few doors beside.
The street are plenty of restaurants, bars and facilities, hostel is located close to the beach.

Worst management I've worked with.
On the first day they were not there and I found out that most of what we've agreed to was not happening.
They surprised me with these and a deposit they've never told me about so naturally I had a lot of questions, asked for a moment of their time and they became angry because of my doubts, suddenly they just became rude to the point of making unnecessary comments about my clothes 🤷‍♂️
We had agreed that the first month I was going to be part of the cleaning team and the next month a bartender. There wasn't even enough food for us, and many other bad things

Dear Raphael,
You were welcomed by our staff, who were very nice to you and invited you for a party. You chose to stay in and distanced yourself from the group.
You were not as pro active as we hoped and after one day you already asked for the bar/kitchen position after we agreed on a month of housekeeping first.
We did not say anything about your clothes, we only said that at the moment we did not found you representative for the bar. There was room for improvement but you did not wanted to be as flexible as you said your were.
You also continuously changed your dates and was very unclear in your messaging.
I thought we left on good terms by agreeing we were not a match, but unfortunately you could not let it go.
Good luck in the future.
