Before Applying please make sure you must have a Work Permit for Denmark or an EU passport as it is required when Volunteering in Denmark !

Please read the listing carefully before applying - Thank you :-)

Please note that we take in only crew who can join for a minimum of 3 months. (We are looking for at least 2 people right now :)...

In an old warehouse from 1756 in Nyhavn , Copenhagen we transformed rather boring offices in this magnificent building to what we strive to be the most "Cozy" and clean hostel in Copenhagen - Build for travellers by travellers - no big corporation involved here :-)

We run the hostel like a ship. This means a Captain is in charge of and responsible for running the ship (checking guests in/out etc.) and a crew member to assist (cleaning, making beds, running errands, helping guests etc.)
The captain is 100% in charge, however we expect both captains and crew to help each other when needed.

Your CREW-shifts will be a mix of
- Morning shifts where you help prepare for the day + cleaning etc.
- Dayshift where you clean the hostel, make the beds run errands etc.
- Shifts where you check in late arrivals, clean etc.
- Cooking for the crew
- Helping out when needed

Don't apply if you:
- Are not a team player;
- Do not like cleaning;
- Cannot stand to be constantly around people;
- Are not interested in spending time with your coworkers;
- Cannot be flexible with your schedule.

A super friendly and clean hostel is one of our top priorities and therefore we expect you to be service minded and know how to clean.
Most of the time you will be a total of approx. 7 helpers sharing the shifts between you and making your own schedule. If someone gets sick or leave, we expect you to back each other up.
Normally you have three to four 8 hour shifts per week + 2 hours every other Monday where we check, clean and fix every corner of the hotel.
We have a facebook group where we share information - checking for information in the group is how you start your shift - this way we all know what is going on.

Address/CPR: Please note that it is NOT LEGAL to use our address for CPR registration.

You will share a dorm room with the other crew members as well as a small livingroom/kitchen and restroom.
All crew are expected to participate equally in the crew-tasks such as shopping, cooking, cleaning the crew area etc. and working at the hostel is expected to be your first priority while working with us.

House Rules
We have a few house rules - the most important ones are
- No smoking inside
- No loud music or noise after hours
By breaking the house rules or not taking your fair share of the tasks you may be asked to disembark.

We have both seen great parts of the world and have experienced many nice hostels and awesome people. Its our ambition to bring these experiences to life in Copenhagen, by building this small and cozy hostel as an alternative to the many huge corporate hostels.

We get hundreds of applications from great people wanting to join and for that we are very happy, however it also means that we simply don't have time to answer you all.

Therefore please make your application as short and concise as possible stating:
* That you have read our listing and that it matches your expectations
* What date would suit you to join and what date you expect to move on.
* Your age, gender, nationality and picture
* Why we should hire you?

We hope to see you on board
Cheers, Peter & Rune
