Hostel management position in Colorado!

Position Title: Wanderlust Team/ Manager

Primary Purpose and Functions: Living and working together as a team to accomplish responsibilities of the hostel, while creating and experiencing a comfortable attractive atmosphere for ourselves and guests.
I am looking for someone who truly fits into The Wanderlust environment. It is constant excitement, people, and change in the summer and slows down immensely in the late fall, and winter months. Come fall (late September) you have the option of staying through the slow months, and taking turns traveling.

Expectations and Responsibilities:
• Be available and committed for at least 4 months (dates somewhat flexible, with opportunity to stay longer)
• Work 3 day shifts, 2-3 on call night shifts (this is flexible and may change week to week depending on everyone’s schedule)

• Maintain an exceptionally clean hostel o Making beds
o Cleaning rooms/bathrooms
o Vacuuming and mopping
o Washing, drying, and folding laundry o Etc..

• Outside- watering lawn, flowers, and garden : ) And in the winter shoveling snow, bringing in firewood and starting fires.

• Willing to be on call certain days and evenings with the hostel cell phone

• Providing answers and information about the local area, restaurants, hikes, and
adventures to visiting guests

• Checking emails and responding with promptness

• Making reservations correctly and concisely

• Updating social media with new pictures, stories, and events

• Handle money and run credit cards

• Summer is busy and I expect everyone to be available from the end of June- mid September. You definitely have time to acquire a part time job. The rest of the year (if you stay) I encourage traveling, and adventuring : ) We will chat more about this if staying is an option
