What Kind of Work?

Summer/High season is May-October and volunteers with good customer service and computer skills are needed. 1-3 helpers are needed for a minimum of 2 weeks, preferably.

Volunteers will assist with:

  • Checking guests in/out
  • Welcoming guests (English speaking skills required),
  • Providing guests with information, etc.
  • Housekeeping of the hostel (making beds, doing laundry, general cleaning, cleaning bathrooms, etc)
 

Sometimes, volunteers will need to pick up guests and take them to the hostel as well as buy groceries if need be. During the winter, volunteers can help with marketing for the upcoming summer season and also some help in the reception with the guests.

Workers Will Enjoy

In return for 4-5 hours of work per day, Florian offers free accommodation and meals for the duration of your stay. They prioritize being mindful and respectful of everyone working and staying here within the family environment.

The hostel is run by a real Albanian family. Florian the owner/manager has been guiding tours over 3 years in Albania and can give you many tips on where to go and what to see, not only in Shkoder but all over the country. The area is incredibly scenic and free of tourists, letting you revel in the beauty of Albania.

    Hi Charlotte,

    I’m thinking of spending some time in Albania from Mid-September to Mid-October, and I’m interested in working at your hostel. What is your availability of those dates?

    Best Regards,

    Gage

      You need to log into WT and go to the hosts profile page and see what the dates are for the working posting for that work. Contact the host and if all is ok, arrange a handshake so you can get a reference and off you go.
