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) Cleaning rooms + hostel: 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 21 unique rooms. All of theme in a different Dutch theme check out the website

3) Get ready for some cafe fun! You'll be lending a hand during breakfast, lunch, and events – it's all hands on deck! Join the Hello I'm Local team and dive into a variety of tasks. From whipping up coffees to tackling dishes, sprucing up tables, and even helping out our chef!


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? :)
