Guesthouse & Hostel looking for Business Partner to Manage Operations in Niagara Falls, NY (A Wonder of the World)

We are a small guesthouse and hostel, fully permitted and legal to operate in Niagara Falls, New York. We have been open for 13 years and are now looking for someone to take over the operations. We have high standards and have maintained 4 and 5 star reviews since opening in 2009.

We are looking to turn over the reigns to someone to live in and manage and operate the hostel. This is not a job we're offering but a business opportunity.

We are looking for an outgoing, hardworking, friendly, smiley, happy, funny, articulate, computer literate person! We want a person who will ask a stranger how their day was, offer recommendations of fun things to do, see a need, and then fill that need with a hardworking attitude while simultaneously having fantastic energy when dealing with guests. We want to maintain our reputation as the friendly hostel where guests feel like they are at home and part of a family.

The day to day operations include: cleaning and preparing the house for guests; helping guests with questions and tourist activities; making pancakes in the morning; handling reservations through the booking platforms; guest communications prior to arrival; maintaining the yard and garden; purchasing supplies as needed; performing basic bookkeeping; basically ensuring the smooth running of daily operations. During the peak season, we will be available to help and provide you with some time off during the week.

To thrive in this role you need to have a passion for hostels and for people, be well organized, have great problem solving skills, be efficient, hardworking, and have great initiative. Previous hostel/accommodation experience and some management experience required.

Our busy season runs May through October and we are very busy during that time. From October through May, business is lighter.

If you are looking for an opportunity to learn all sides of the accommodation business, this is a great place to start as it is not too big. If you have been in the accommodation business and want to try something on your own that you have more control over, this is for you.

Compensation will take the form of housing, base pay and share of profits. We are looking for someone that wants to take a successful business and make it their own.

You must be able to work legally in the USA. We can not provide work visas. You can send your resume and a cover letter as to why this is perfect for you to [email protected]. Please don’t call as my phone rings off the hook as it is. If you look like a good match, we will contact you to set up a phone/video interview.
