"We like happy guests which means that we put a lot of effort into making our hostel the best it can be."

This is the Deal

The exchange work we offer is mainly the daily cleaning of the hostel for approx. 3 hrs per day, 6 days a week between 10am and 1pm. It includes bathroom and kitchen cleaning, vacuuming, making beds etc. as well as occasional outdoor jobs like weeding. We may also have some additional, paid work in the afternoons/evenings (folding laundry, assisting with check-ins etc. - work permit essential).

Welcome Skills: eye for detail, initiative, sense of humor, thorough cleaning skills, team spirit, efficiency, needs to be dog-friendly


Hogwartz has 18 rooms with shared facilities in the main hostel and four more upmarket rooms/studios with ensuite and own kitchen facilities outside the main building. For our exchange help, we offer quality accommodation in a shared room (no bunks). Please note that you need to self-cater as meals are not part of the deal.
