Work exchange in NYC area

The Exchange

I'm expecting about 25 hours of help a week. It's a great deal since you live right near Manhattan in Jersey City which is nice place. We are also close to the subway to NYC (Just 10 minutes ride to World Trade Center). You will stay 1 street from the subway station to NYC and it is in a safe area so you will be happy. There will be others here that will be doing the same thing.


25 hours of help per week

Reception: Help with check-ins, check-outs and guest assistance.

Housekeeping: Help with changing the bed linens and general housekeeping.

Handyman: Help with a wide range of repairs or building.

Cleaning: Help clean the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas.

What you get

3 days off per week

Shared Dorm: You will have a bed in a shared room, which means you will share the same room with other travelers.

Free Laundry: You can use our laundry room freely.
