Hostel staff for a small Hostel and Tour Operator in Patagonia / CHILE

UPDATE: from saison Nov. - April 2014/15 !!!

For the current season 2014/15 (Nov-Apr) we are looking for an outgoing, positive-minded and proactive person to help around the hostel. We are located in Coyhaique, Patagonia / CHILE in the middle of the Carretera Austral.

The job entails doing pretty much everything from cleaning the beds/rooms, laundry, check-in&out to running the front desk. We organize tours and help our guests with information around their tour planning. This position is very fun and extremely rewarding, but hostel work is also challenging. In return you get to immerse yourself in everything the hostel and Patagonia has to offer, and meet cool travelers from all over the world!

We are about creating a community, not really a business and prefer backpackers and travellers who are dynamic and know about the world as most of our guests do too.

Besides the normal tasks in the hostel there is a lot of other things to do in our house. You are free to cook and bake and to get creative with the decoration of the hostel. Also our little three-year old Mateo as well as our dog Schulz are looking forward to having some nice company.

We offer accomodation, free board, laundry and, depending on how long you´lll stay with us we can provide you an evaluation after a trial period.

It´s helpful if you:

speak English and Spanish - some German or French would be useful too
are open-minded and enjoy working with people
enjoy cooking and baking
have creative ideas
