Activities & Shift

* If you work at the reception, you will be responsible of welcoming our guests, take some payments, make the beds, do the laundry, give some good vibes and tips to the guests, answer all phone calls and emails when you are on duty, make sure the hostel stays a safe and cool place during days and nights!
=> 4 shifts a week of 6 hours each. So that leaves you with 3 days off per week.

* If you work as the housekeeper, you will responsible of making the hostel a nice place to stay and relax in a clean environment. We have a couple of bathrooms to deep clean everyday, the kitchen, living-room and TV room, and of course the bedrooms to leave spotless at all time!
=> 7 shifts a week of 3 hours each maximum. But if often takes 2 hours per day to complete them well if you are good and precise enough. So it leaves you lots of free time to enjoy Bournemouth and the Dorset vibes!!
