Days 1 & 2 are cleaning the hostel, dorm rooms, kitchen and bathrooms and making any beds.

Days 3 & 4 are cleaning our apartment complex, private rooms, kitchen and bathrooms.

Days 5 & 6 are our reception shifts (8-22). Plenty of time to watch a film or read a book, as you're not really working this entire period. That said, we know it's long, so we give you a little spending money after the second one.

Days 7 & 8 are yours to do as you please with a little extra cash in hand. :)
