- BE COOL :) You are a reflection of our business during your time here, you are expected to behave in a friendly and well-mannered way to other staff and customers.

- You need to stay for your agreed time. The job you do is extremely important to the running of our hostel. We ask for a minimum stay of 4 weeks. When you request a date, we work around that when we hire other volunteers so it's very important that you stay for your agreed time so that our hostel continues to run at its best.

- Please keep in mind that when you volunteer at a YHA it can only be for 4 weeks maximum. This is for all YHA's in the country, so if you volunteer with us for 4 weeks, you would not be able to volunteer at another YHA again.
