(Live in) Hostel Caretakers couple

SINT MAARTEN DWI / Vicky’s Keys Hostel

Vicky’s Keys Hostel is looking for new colleagues for coming busy season. The hostel is located in The Keys a little village in the area called Sucker Garden. Located right across the salt pond we are just a 2 mile distance from Philipsburg.

What is Vicky’s Keys and what’s a hostel?
Vicky’s Keys is a hostel. A hostel is a budget-oriented dormitory accommodation that accepts individual travellers (typically backpackers) for short-term stays, and that provides common areas and communal facilities. This means the majority of our guests shares the sleeping area, bathroom and kitchen. Except guests who sleep in the private dorm rooms and or studios, they wouldn’t have to share everything with other guests. With 15 single beds and 3 queen size beds (private room and studios) a maximum of 21 persons per night can stay at our hostel.

Are you our new colleague?
If you have some background in hostel management / operations and be willing to get involved in all aspects of running the hostel then do get in touch. You need to be smart, fun, love to BBQ, love music and create a great experience for our guests.

What are the tasks?
You will cover all duties, for example:
– bookings management, check-in and check-out
– website / social media updates
– cleaning, laundry management
– preparing breakfast
– cooking / bartending (happy hour, bbq events)
– managing and buying stock
– ensuring when guest post their feedback they mention that both the hostel and you are awesome
– managing day to day maintenance and contacting specialists for maintenance when you need to
– guidance of recruited volunteers for our Eco- projects

This opportunity would better suit someone looking for a longer term stay in one location / hostel at least 4 months. You must be an EU passport holder. You speak English fluently and your writing skills are up to par. If you speak other languages then that’s a plus. A drivers license is a must. You will live on location (compensation included) take care of guests and the property (technical duties) and help make the hostel a success from A-Z. With all of this we also hope you will have lots of fun and enjoy living in paradise called St. Maarten/ St. Martin.
Besides the above mentioned we aim to develop alternative means of income for the hostel such as:
beach pick-nicks
pub/cafe crawls
bike rentals
drink/food selling
any funky ideas you have

What you get in return?:
A place called home on St. Maarten for the busy season
More hostel management experience
Meeting lots of people from all walks of life
Food (breakfast, lunch, dinner) & (non-alcoholic) Beverages
A percentage of the monthly net Turn Over

For your own account:
– International covered insurance
– Travel costs to and from St. Maarten DWI

We really need someone that is able to make this hostel “theirs” and develop it into their little space in paradise allowing others to sleep there and having the best time inlife!
