About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

He Murray library Hostel is a newly opened hostel in Anstruther, a 10 minutes ride from St Andrews, Scotland. We've been working in the hostel industry for over 10 years, and we finally succeed to open our own place. The hostel is of 28 beds, a common area and a kitchen , right in front of the old harbour. We've always been working with volunteers in our past hostels and the experience has always been positive.
We need volunteers to ensure guests are being welcomed in a nice atmosphere and the place stays tidy. There shouldn't be any more than 20 hours of "real" work. Well, We do encourage the volunteers into pushing things up with their own idea and abilities, so photographers, social media pro, handy people are more than welcome! In exchange of a few helping hours you'll receive free accommodation, free internet, free laundry and loads loads of free time to discover the Fife kingdom and most particularly the East Neuk region its history and its reputation of having the most friendly people in all Scotland! If you wish to immerse yourself into the Scottish fisherman culture you won't find better place!

On this picture you can see me with some friends, I'm the one with a hat and glasses, I'm quite often cold (I have got no hair on my head) and I like too look smart (hence the glasses). I've been doing hostels for ever now, I love my job, I love my life, even if it doesn't look like anything extraordinary I guess. I like mounting projects and make people participate in it. I do sometimes waste my time watching fails video on youtube but I'm always up for new things.
