Hello All!

We are currently looking for native English speaking workers to help in housekeeping and reception. Also, we run a waffle bar in the mornings that is included for all guests.

Our current need is for people that want to work three days, and in return pay $95 a week for rent. These shifts will be between 3 and 4 hours. That gives you the other four days off to explore the national parks and beaches surrounding Albany.

We have two newly redone staff rooms, one 12 bed and one 4 bed.

You have access to the waffle bar each morning, wifi, a lounge room with foxtel, and a commercial kitchen with everything you need to cook. Shared bathroom. Also, free parking in the back if you have a vehicle.

We are in the center of town, and close to two grocery stores, and all the restaurants and bars.

Work 9-12 hours a week, instead of 24 like most other hostels.

We need people to work hard without micromanagement after training, and that can be happy and friendly with our guests.

We'd love for you to stay at least three weeks, or longer!

WE MAY CONSIDER FULL RENT FOR ACCOMMODATION FOR THE RIGHT COUPLE OF PEOPLE.

Contact me through email or text message, anytime.
Joe
