I guess the topic of opening a hostel has been discussed a lot here but what I need is some specific advice.
My partner and I (He's italian, I am German) live in Parma, in the north of Italy now after travelling for the past 3 years. We both have jobs but are pretty much unhappy with them. The idea of opening a hostel has been on our mind for a long time and if I could I'd jack in my job and start straight away the hostel I'd be out of the office in 10 seconds. But we need money and patience I guess.
So my question is: Does anyone of you have a kind of check list what needs to be done before you quit your job and get started? Like organisational stuff, forms, paperwork and so on.
Any advice and help is greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much!
