The Exchange

Welcome to the South! Where you will fall in love with grits, sweet tea, and the NotSo Hostel! We're looking for someone who is committed to making our hostel the best it can be! Someone who can befriend other guests and get the job done each morning as well. We would love for someone to come to the hostel and not only walk away with a love for Charleston but also a love for the place they will call home. Namaste. <3

Program Details

We expect you to help with housework and cleaning after people have checked out each morning. We expect a good knowledge of english so you can answer questions for guests and communicate with our other staff members. You can expect at least one morning off a week, sometimes two. Most importantly, we expect you to have fun and enjoy the city while you're here! This means you will average about three hours of work per day and the rest of the day is up to you to explore our historic city!

Activities & Shift

You will arrive at 8:30am or 10am depending on the day and help with the turnover shift. This means making beds, sweeping, cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, and taking out the trashes. On average this shift should only be a few hours however if it is slow and your hours for the week are being far from met because of this, you may be asked to do additional projects around the hostel such as gardening or painting.
