abHostel is the way to go if you are a proative backpacker! The hosters I met were very nice and the owners, Birgitte and Greg, very nice too. If someone rates their stay in social media with a 100%, Greg will open a special big beer bottle for the staff!
I could not have imagined this first experience as a work-volunteer to turn out so good. The vibe in the hostel is charming and so are the guests.
The job is easy but you really feel responsible of the hostel. Sometimes I had to deal with tricky and delicate situations with guests, but that's part of the job!
100% rating! THANK YOU!!

I really enjoyed the time I spend there. You see that Birgit and Greg treat this hostel like their baby, so you can feel the atmosphere of love and care.
I have also met many people from all over the world, we went to parties together and had lots of fun!
Work never takes more than 4 hours. Some days are really hectic, however, usually 4 hours are more than enough to do all the tasks.
I am grateful that my first experience was so awesome! Thank you a lot! <3

This was my first experience and it was great! I learned A LOT. Tasks are easy and shifts are fair enough: check ins, cleaning, serving breakfast, giving city info to guests and socializing with them. You will also learn to run a bar! and about beers of course! So follow the tasks (which are clearly set on paper) according to your shift and pay attention to details. When in doubt about anything, ask Birgit & Greg and they will help you out. The best part is all the amazing people I met there <3 Volunteers, guests & owners. Thank you B&G for the opportunity, I loved the experience :)

I learnt a lot here. You' ll be doing different duties that make the hostel work. Everything is on you. You'll be working hard in your hours. That means you need a lot of energy to manage everything and do it right. There is no place to make a mistake. For those who are looking an organize place, this is perfect. You have a daily routine with different activities to do, and everything is organize on time. The hostel is big and very cozy. Make sure that you know were are you going.It's really important to like the enviroment to have a nice experience around here and share that wth the guests!

And yes it was really nice you were always sharing your lovely experiences with our great guests!
