Program Details

We are running a small but social hostel where the volunteers has crucial role in shaping the homely atmosphere where everyone feels included and welcome. Working as a small team also allows us to be more flexible , we always make sure our team has time to enjoy the city as well. Having your own knowledge about the city is important at work too as you're gonna be helping the guests with tips about sights to see, places to go.
Ideally we host two volunteers at once, so they can work on alternate days. We'll mostly need help in the afternoons and evenings.


Activities & Shift

Being a small hostel means we are sharing all the tasks, so you get to try yourself in all the different hostel duties:

°reception: at checkin, besides taking guests' details, we always give them a little guide about the city, explaining on the map what to see, where to eat and party etc.

°housekeeping & cleaning: changing beds and doing laundry, emptying bins, keeping the place tidy, doing daily cleaning. The place is small, only 3 rooms and the communal spaces so this doesn't take up too much time. General cleaning is done after 12, to get the place ready for check in time.

°sociaizing: organising evening activities to bring the guests together, giving them recommendations, making sure they're having a good time.


Rules

Our guests usually choose this place for the friendly enviroment, so we're looking for volunteers who enjoy getting to know people from all different walks of life and are not shy to start conversations. It's a very informal enviroment, where we often make friends with the people staying here, but we're expecting our team to treat everyone with respect and kindness. We're looking for reliable, independent people, who can work on their own once they're familiar with the tasks.
