How do I get the job?
When you book your hostel, let them know you’d also be interested in working there. In reality though, it’s best to just go there and talk with the owner or manager.
If they like you and think you’d be a good fit with the staff and guests they’ll likely be pretty happy to bring you on board.
Bigger corporate hostels, despite needing more staff, will have more rules and processes to go through. They’ll often have their hands tied with rules and regulations and only hire you if you sign a contract and are legally allowed to work and pay taxes.
