We are currently looking for someone to join our hostel staff team for winter season of 2019/Spring 2020. Do not call to inquire - please submit RESUME + COVER LETTER with contact information for consideration.

Requirements:
-We highly encourage our work exchangers to stay two months as it takes a while to learn the ins and outs of hostel life. However, we are open to shorter stays at a month minimum.
-We have a large urban garden in our backyard that all staff collectively care for
-We require a one week trial period, which serves as an excellent way to get to know our city in order to best serve our travelers. After 1 week if it's not a good fit on either side we require you to have "no hard feelings" Hostel living is a challenge and it's not for everyone!
-Valid identification (Driver`s License or Passport)
-Work-exchange hours are approximately 24 per week maximum.
-Ability to find the therapeutic and happy place in karma cleaning (toilets, bathtubs, floors, kitchen, making beds). We pride ourselves in having an exceptionally clean hostel, and your work directly reflects this ethos. Most of your work will be cleaning.
-Ability to hold boundaries with guests effectively such as quiet hours and no alcohol consumption after 10 pm.
-The desire to live and work in a fun environment where time alone is minimal unless you leave the house
-Willingness to socialize positively with guests in harmony - this is key!
-Be willing to coordinate/host events, explore, and go the extra mile to be a good host to our guests (we ask that you host at least one activity a week minimum) Examples include pizza party, karaoke, game night, movie night, bonfire, brewery tour, pub crawl, city walk, forest park, etc.

Ideal candidates:
-Would be between 21-30
-Personality descriptors that pair well with our work exchangers are: warm and welcoming, enthusiastic, hard-working, team-oriented, externally detail oriented, service driven, easy going yet firm, and a clear communicator.
-MUST submit resume + cover letter for consideration to [email protected]
