The Experience

We need someone with the ability to maintain the hostel’s and the restaurant’s social media updated with interesting and engaging content, and to take amazing photos of the events going on, like pub crawls, and also of the dishes prepared by our chef.

The pleace is nice and the location is good (central). The work itself isn't heavy, and you are never alone (7 hrs.) I can't meet Tumay (in the work), but i did Murat, who was nice and gave me support, also thanks Maria who always smile me at breakfast!... thank you!
To be disadvantages are the room, always a mass and cleanness isn't a strength. Also you can't use laundry machine. Another thing is they don't respect your day off, considering the schedyle isn't good at all, because this is an opportunity to work but at the same time the main idea is to know the place (Istanbul) Good luck!!

Cheers Lighthouse is a good hostel to learn and observe how this kind of business works. The location and the hostel structure are the strong points. The main tourist’s places are near to the hostel and the tram station to go everywhere is 7 minutes walking so you can council the worldpackers experience and enjoy the Istanbul city. The staff, Max abi, Murat abi, Chef and Mama (miss all of you, guys) are helpful and probably you will have a lot of fun with them. Ana thanks for the friendship! I I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of the cheers team! Don’t forget the sarrada guys!

About the host

Cheers Lighthouse is a hostel with the friendliest atmosphere you’ll find in Istanbul! On our main building, we also run a restaurant called Cheers Soul Kitchen, where we serve the best of the traditional turkish dishes with a privileged view of the beautiful Marmara Sea.
