Receptionist and all around Amazing Person for a climbing Hostel in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain)

We are a small hostel that feels more like a family home than a hotel. All of us have ongoing and direct contact with our guests. In fact, sharing good times with our visitors is one of our core values.
We are looking for a dynamic, decisive person with excellent social skills. If you are a person who is personable and enjoys creating and participating in a lively environment, you’ll fit right in! Do you enjoy chatting at any time of the day? Playing a quick game of cards? Sitting around a bonfire? Then come join us!
Our hostel caters to rock-climbers from all over the world. As such, an essential requirement for this position is competence as a climber. You don’t have to be a strong climber, by any means, but climbing must be something you enjoy. In addition, it is important than you can climb without supervision. That is, you must be an “autonomous” climber.
It is not essential that you have worked in this capacity before but experience in customer service or directly with the public is highly valued.
You must have a strong command of English and knowledge of a second or third language is a plus.
Basic knowledge of computer systems is necessary.

• Welcoming guests

• Check-in and check-out
• Managing reservations using our custom system
