Program Details

What you can expect:
* You will sleep together with the other volunteers in a room + private bathroom.
* I provide a bike.
* You can explore the area, check out historical Haarlem, the national park and the beach.
* I have a full equipped kitchen where you can cook.
* The group of volunteers get 250 euro a week for groceries (6 volunteers)
* And a really nice team to work with :)

Haarlem is a great city and only 15 minutes away by train to Amsterdam and 20 minutes by bike to the National Parks and the beach.

A lot of my volunteers actually stayed and now live around the corner!
It will be a life enriching experience.

Activities & Shift

1) Being the nightwatch: You are in charge of the hostel during the night, if people loose their card to enter, or the fire alarm goes off, or guests make to much noise you are the person to come into action.

2) Making beds and helping with small chores: I have a couple of lovely cleaning ladies who can use your hand with making my 90 beds. Not 90 beds everyday ofcourse :) I've got 20 unique rooms. All of theme in a different Dutch theme check out the website

3) Helping in the kitchen with preparing breakfast and dinner. Every morning I serve a delicious breakast for my guests. I will teach you how to make these so we can work together. Dinner we serve if ordered. We have meat and veggie option. So if you are not scared of preparing a chicken you will be fine!


I'm looking for happy and enthusiastic people, who will be a great fit to the team!
Are you 20+, interested in a new volunteer experience, excited to meet people from all over the world and ready to become a real local Dutchie? :)

Then send me some information about yourself, your experience and why you would like to work here. If I don't respond, it doesn't mean that I'm not interested, but that I don't need volunteers at that moment.
