The Exchange

We are a recently open hostel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We'd like someone to assist us in the hostel. We're looking for someone who is fun and easygoing, as my friend and I are both easygoing open-minded and fun people. For the past 11 months we were managing it together but as we also have other jobs we want someone to assist as bring new ideas that are always welcome. You will be in an environment where you will be meeting different people :)

Activities & Shift

you will be asked to check-in and followup with the bookings, it doesn't really take much time some times there is only one person to check-in. but if you create activities for the guests it will be awesome. which means like game night, karaoke night whatever new idea you have will be welcome.
the average check-in is 3 per day. so we would love assistance. when we say assistance basically simple stuff we will be managing the hostel.
