The Experience

We are looking for someone that helps out at our hostel reception during the week. Working at the front desk means that you will be greeting and welcoming our guests, show them to their rooms or dorms and handle bookings and payments. On the weekends, when it gets really busy you will have your days off. If you see yourself as an open minded and outgoing person that would like to work in a young international team, we might be the perfect fit.

My 4 weeks in Mellow Hostel were amazing! The staff was caring and funny, everyone was here to help you in the work or daily life. Eli and Felix, the owners, are really nice and will do anything to help you to feel like home. The place is a little paradise between the facilities, the food, the chill area, the pool, the luxurious garden, etc. you will never want to leave this place !
I was a bartender and if you're not afraid to work "long shift" (7H/day), it will be perfect for you! It's a lot of fun and easy to do.
There are 2 types of rooms, don't hesitate to ask what you prefer!
