Activities & Shift

We are in need of someone responsible for the hostel during the night shit - from 00h to 8h in the morning.
The volunteer will be in charge, mainly, of the late check-ins (guests arriving after midnight).
After guests retire to their rooms and leave the common areas, volunteers will be in charge of tiding up the common areas so in the morning, when guests come out of their rooms, the place looks clean (we have a full-time cleaning staff that does a full cleaning everyday).
Besides that, volunteers will ensure hostel is quiet after 11pm and that guests respect the hostel's rules. During the remaining hours, volunteers will stay in the reception in case any assistance is required.


We have simple, easy-to-follow rules. We simply expect our volunteers to be responsible and to respect property rules. During the shifts it's not allowed to consume alchool or any other substances. Only guests, staff and volunteers are allowed in the property.

Other than that, we hope you enjoy your time staying in our hostel and exploring the city!
