*Currently accepting spring/summer 2020 volunteers*
We may just be the homiest hostel you'll ever come across. As we have only a capacity for 8-10 guests, it is an intimate setting where you get to know people very quickly and share and connect with other travelers. We've created a very positive, chill and friendly atmosphere and search for volunteers that fit right into this. As you'll be in constant contact with other travelers from around the world you can expect to have many interactions with different cultures and we encourage you to make the most of that!

We are looking for help with general every day cleaning, making beds, laundry, checking in guests and interacting with our great little international clientele. Most of all we are looking for someone who loves to be around people and has a love of exploring, someone that genuinely likes to connect and share with the other travellers.

We want to maintain our reputation as the welcoming, cozy and clean hostel that we are: and our team is what makes that happen! We have superb ratings across all our booking platforms and it is incredibly important to us that this maintained. So much so that we are more than happy to provide a little extra something to our helpers when are ratings are maintained or exceeded.

The location is perfect for exploring as I am in the heart of the city, and in what I think is Winnipeg's BEST neighbourhood, Saint-Boniface. We are also just walking distance to many of Winnipeg's favorite attractions, including the Forks National Historic Site, downtown, the Exchange District and many restaurants/cafes, and great walking trails.

Volunteer Position:

-We ask for a maximum of 25 hours of help over 5 or 6 days but leave plenty of time for you to enjoy and get to know your surroundings
-The length of stay is flexible but we ask for a minimum of 4 weeks and would give priority to people looking for a month or longer.

*Last minute helpers can inquire about shorter lengths as there's always a chance we may be able to fill a smaller gap.

** Calling green thumbs and gardeners.. We would love to start a small communal garden in the spring time (2020)and would like some help, if this sounds like a project you would like to oversee please let us know :)

Live In Manager Position:

We are looking for a super friendly, positive, hardworking individual to take over a brand new position here as a live in manager starting in April, minimum 8 month commitment

MUST be passionate about hospitality! Candidates must genuinely enjoy interacting with people and have great attention to detail. Someone that takes initiative to chat with guests over morning coffee, keen to offer recommendations for fun things to do and see and overall just have a willing and self starter attitude.

We prefer that candidates have prior experience in the hospitality industry, experience in a supervisory/management role is an asset but not mandatory. What is more important are the abilities in costumer service and eagerness to learn. Communication skills will be very important to the job as you will be running the hostel and communicating regularly with the owner, who has a very clear style of management.

This is a paid position and a private room will also be included.

If you are interested in any of the above opportunities please clarify which one and your availability.

We're certain it won't take long for you to feel at home here! :)
