What sort of works is offered in hostels?
Usually, the jobs are quite simple and easy to do. They can be handling reception, changing beds, laundry etc. These tasks are mostly the day to day ones we do for ourselves. Some hostels might offer monetary allowance for hostel management jobs in addition to free accommodation.
Thus, hostel management can be your chance to explore the world. You won’t be staying at someone’s home, like you do in au pair; you won’t have to work in a farm, like you would have to under WWOOF; neither will you be taking care of someone’s pet, like you would be required to as a house sitter. If the listed options weren’t suitable for you, hostel jobs surely is. Become an independent traveler and work while you travel. Plan your next trip using suitable travel hacks and see for yourself the amount you save.
