The Elephants Hostels Bratislava

If you’re interested in experiencing hostel life in Eastern Europe, learning the ins and outs of hospitality while having loads of fun, and meeting tons of amazing people from all over the world, this is your place! We run 2 fun and social hostels in the heart of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.

Currently looking for volunteers mainly to help us with reception, bar, and organizing various activities.

Our places are well-balanced backpacker's/party hostels. One more party, one more chill.

Ways how to make extra cash:
1. Cooking - We give you 15EUR. Then you go shopping. It’s up to you how much you spend if it’s over 10EUR it’s no problem and very encouraged because then you are cooking for approx. 10-40 guests plus volunteers. Guests are paying 5EUR. So in the worst case, you cover your expenses and make people happy. In another scenario, you could make 30 to 80EUR extra (excluding what you invested to shop for ingredients.)

2. Pub Crawl - Not only that you can learn how to lead a hoard of drunk people (worse than a school group in elementary school) but we pay you 1EUR per person who joins (in Drunken Dollars, our hostel currency). If you are really motivated and get most of the possible 270 guests we may have (depends on which hostel you are placed in) you can not only drink for free and get to know (sometimes VERY personally) interesting sexy guests and earn some extra bucks on top of that.

3. By really caring about the hostel and doing extra work and being able to stay more than 3 months. We are not blind (always checking) and if it is persistent and last for more than a few weeks we always offer reception only work that is paid and you will be responsible for checking the cleanliness (and giving a shit in general) of volunteers work that has to be done instead of doing it only by yourself... but most importantly to make sure the volunteers pay very close attention to guests (and by that we don’t mean only those you are sexually interested in :) ).

4. By asking us to work more hours. We always have more stuff to do, so if you feel like it we can pay you 5EUR an hour for every hour over 25h

We have a team of about 8+ volunteers and 2-3 paid "volunteers"(each hostel) at a time which is constantly changing so feel free to contact us at any time.

First please tell us about yourself and about your motivation to volunteer for us because we have many applicants so please make it short and right on the point ;) (essays of 1000+ words are also accepted but not sure we have time to read them. Also, please include the 🐘 in it if you have read so far :D )

We do not accept couples, but we do accept couples of friends.

Despite the fact that the work has to be properly done, you will have a great time here and meet a bunch of cool people during your stay, learn new skills and experience yet unexperienced situations.

We have around 15 volunteers at a time in each hostel, who do housekeeping and reception work besides running tours and group activities or cook dinners in a good balance. The management is also built up from volunteers who stay here for longer.

Volunteering in Wild Elapahants was an absolutely incredible experience. Everyone was super super friendly and kind. The work was very manageable and the hours were handy. The vibes in the hostel were amazing with group dinners, daily activities and pub crawls every night. Everyone was super social and up for a good time. I would HUGELY recommend volunteering here to anyone who’s social and likes meeting new people. I can’t wait to go back :)

Overall, I had a great experience! The other staff were super welcoming and fun, and I loved talking to all of the guests. The hostels host a lot of activities every day, like pub crawls and lunches, and you’re expected to participate in them so you’ll likely do more than 25 hours of work each week. It’s easy to get stuck in the hostel life, so I didn’t get much of a chance to see things outside of the city. I will definitely go back!

I had the most amazing 2 weeks in Bratislava. It is very much a work hard play hard lifestyle so if you are up for that I would definitely suggest volunteering here. I made amazing memories with amazing people and can’t wait for the moment I get to come back <3

My month at Wild Elephants was overall a great experience. It was non-stop, very social, and we did a lot of drinking and partying, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t want that. But if you do, this is the place for you! All of the volunteers, guests, and staff members were so kind and the managers were organized and professional (when needed haha). The hostels are large and busy so everyone’s work is important. I grew so much through this and made so many friends and memories <3!

This was my first volunteer experience and I had such an amazing time at Wild Elephants! It’s truly an environment like no other! If you love to be social and party this is 100% the place for you. You meet so many awesome people and the community within the volunteers is really strong. As long as you don’t mind making beds still a little drunk, the work is not bad at all! Also there’s a ton of extra ways to get involved at the hostel (and make a little money) like leading pub crawl or making dinner. AMAZING experience ❤️❤️❤️❤️
