The experience

We have a beautiful old building in the centre of town that needs to be restored back to its former glory. It is still operating , and has a lovely bohemian atmosphere. Also a big part of your job is to join in on hostel activities & interact with other guests, making them feel welcome and showing them a fun time. We usually have a few volunteers at any one time to form a lovely community.
