Hello travelers, backpackers and wandering workers :-)


We are a 30-bed hostel situated in the beautiful, historic town of Totnes. We opened the 31th of august and are about to start our story as Totnes'only backpacker hostel. Situated only a 2 minute walk from the train station and 5 minutes to the high street, this is a great location to explore Totnes and the surrounding area. Totnes offers a huge selection of activities from Yoga to Open Mic nights, meditation to wild food foraging. With lots of walking tracks and places to explore. Its a great place to spend a chapter of your travel journey.

We're looking for staff to work in exchange for accommodation. At present, the work is varied and could involve any kind of odd jobs, creative challenges, daily cleaning, general duties, work on the internet to create more visibility for the hostel...

We would like hard-working, good-humored and respectful people to join our team to help create and run our hostel. Any specialist skills might be beneficial. If you have experience in any of the following, please get in touch...

Carpentry, Reception/Front of House, Painting and Decorating, Artistic and Creative skills (to help bring our walls to life), Film and Photography. Some jobs will be daily, such as cleaning and bed-changing, at other times you may be given something more specialist, depending on your skills.

We offer safe, cosy accommodation in our staff dorm (3 bed), TV with access to Apple TV and Netflicks, Free high-speed WIFI, and the use of our communal areas (which we are still planning and designing). Work will be the equivalent of 18hours per week although this might be spread over 3-4 days depending on what tasks are on our list.

Initially we will run a 3-day trial with a view to a longer stay (2-6 weeks) thereafter.

Please call or email telling us something about yourself, your skills and why you would like to join our team (Ricardo, the manager and Aura, a volunteer).
