*You don't need to write a lot of things. Once we match the conditions above, I will get back to you as soon as possible.


My name is Jimmy, I opened this guesthouse in January 2013. We are located in Hongdae. Our aim is to provide accommodation for travelers who wish to stay in Seoul and particularly in Hongdae.

Since we opened, we have had so many people from all over the world who joined us as volunteers for work exchange and made our guesthouse better. Most of the guests who have stayed here could describe us in 3 words: comfy, friendly and secure.

We hope to create an environment for both staff and guests so that they feel welcomed and at home. Our goal is to give you a home away from home. At Mr. Comma Guesthouse, we are all friends and like family. We hope that you can join us as well.

Currently, we are seeking volunteers who have personalities that match ours. Nothing matters more than being considerate and regarding our guests as your friends. It is essential for volunteers to be able to get along with guests from different countries and cultures and have an uplifting spirit and positive outlook on life.

Our basic requirements are:
- Love dogs as we have a cute little dog living in our guesthouse
- An organized, neat, and tidy person, as you would be required to clean and maintain the guesthouse
- Be able to speak English well (includes handling conversations and answering requests and questions from our guests). If you can speak some Korean/Chinese that will be a plus.
-Someone who could stay with us for at least two months. The longer stay, the better.

*We are going to let you know more detailed job scope when we are also interested in you.

Volunteering with us will allow you to have more time for yourself as we only require you to work 2 days a week and one weekend a month. The schedule is:

- Two weekdays per week
- One rotational weekend shift, Friday night to Sunday night.

You will need to do cleaning tasks, making beds, and additional maintenance of the guesthouse. Once those tasks are completed, we only require you to stay around to be able to help check-in and welcome upcoming guests. This schedule can be flexible.

In exchange you get:

- A bed in our 4-bed staff room (A/C and heater)
- Daily breakfast (until 10am)
- Internet
- Laundry
- Storage space

If you are already in Korea and are interested in joining us, an interview will be the best for us to make a quick decision.

Please note that we DO NOT sponsor visas.

If we feel that you will be a good fit for our team, we will contact you to know a little bit more about you.
*We might not be able to answer since there are very many messages from many applicants. Please understand this.
For us, once dates are most important. (Our seeking date and your starting date)

Thank you for your interest, we are looking forward to hearing from you!
