*UPDATE* Hi guys, we have already selected the helpers who will be joining us in the near future. Now we will start considering applications to join our team around the 15-18th of February 2018 approximately, to stay with us 6 weeks or more.

If you are interested please apply and add your intended arrival date on the subject of your message.

Please bear in mind that we will recruit someone responsible, with good people skills and ideally some experience in hotels, bars or restaurants. Basic level of Spanish is a plus. Remember to add your current location, date of availability, main skills and intended length of stay. Very importantly, please add your mobile number so it'll be easier for us to get in touch -usually via WhatsApp-. Read below for more info and if you think you would fit here, go ahead and write, cheers!


Hello everyone,

We are Gonzalo and Javier, two Spanish guys who are the hosts of a Guest House in Malaga. The house is a beautiful villa in a great location, very near the beach and the city centre.

We are looking for a fifth helper to join our team and help with the house keeping of the BnB: duties include cleaning, laundry, cooking –just for ourselves, not guests- welcoming guests and maybe some administration. These are tasks that can be done by anyone, but we require that the helpers carry them out at a fast pace and to a high standard. Ideally we would like to recruit someone with good organizational and administration skills, as well as a good level of English and possibly some Spanish.

For helpers we have two rooms that are shared by two or three people each. We will consider all the applications, but preferably, we will be more interested in helpers applying on a single account –not couples- and aged between 21 and 32. Gender wise, we don’t exclude anyone for being male or female, but you have to keep in mind that you might have to share a room with someone of the opposite gender.

We will never ask you to work extra hours, but we do ask that the hours you work really count. We offer accommodation in a really nice house, all the bills including internet and full board –three meals a day-. If you find our profile on some famous hotels web, at the time of writing these lines our overall score is 9 out of 10, being the staff friendliness our strongest point. Guests' satisfaction and subsequent good reviews are essential to us. For that reason, we receive helpers who can really commit to helping this new venture and are good with people, naturally attentive and friendly, in order to keep receiving good comments about our service.

Basically there are three qualities that we really value in any person joining the team:

1- Efficiency and reliability at work: we'll need everybody to turn up on time and in good shape, and carry out your duties in an organized manner and to a good standard.

2- Extra attention to our guests: interacting and empathizing with all our guests is a must, we ought to listen to their plans, questions or requests and respond in the best possible manner. It is essential to have good people skills and go the extra mile in terms of kindness and friendliness towards our guests so they can feel like at home.

3- A positive and sensible attitude towards the team and the villa: we recruit people willing to get involved with the team, who want to participate with the rest of the housemates while being respectful at all times, including sensible housekeeping when not on duty. We need good vibes and harmony in the house so that all helpers can feel happy, which reflects in a naturally friendly service to our guests.

Please note that our house is not a backpackers hostel, it's a beautiful B&B in a good area and so the standards of cleanliness and service expected by our guests are also higher; therefore, the quality of our work must be up to those expectations. If you have some experience in the hospitality industry it'd be great.

We would rather recruit someone willing to stay at least 6-8 weeks. There are plenty of things to see and do in Malaga, so you won't get bored!

If you are interested, please get in touch and explain briefly a few details such as: your age, main skills, intended length of stay and date of availability.

To speed things up, when you write please pass a mobile phone number we can contact, especially good if you have Whatsapp installed.

Thanks very much!
