So now that I have started to work as a hostel manager, I have decided to open up a new series on my site. I’d like to introduce you to this new section on hostel management and tips for running a hostel. I will be sharing what I learn along the way, my experiences, tips, tools, and maybe even some case studies.
I am drawing from my experiences working in several hostels in 4 different countries as well as all the hostels that I have stayed with in the past. I’ll be sharing things as I see them fit. This will be a way for me to teach others what I learn while reflecting on what I am actually doing myself.
My experiences have taken me volunteering in Spain, Croatia, and Turkey while I have stayed in hostels on 4 continents. I am currently managing a hostel in the Caribbean and will be based here for the foreseeable future.
You can expect to read a variety of topics ranging from human resource issues, cleanliness, rule-setting, goal making, cost-analysis and more. You will be able to read them all here. At any time, you can also view them from the home page.
Due to obvious reasons, I won’t likely be giving any specific details about the hostel that I am managing, but I will be writing about topics that I think would be relevant and useful to other hostel managers.
I hope that you find them useful and interesting. Please feel free to contact me regarding any specific questions that you may have and I will do my best to answer them holistically.
