Hostel Jobs in Amsterdam

Amsterdam has more museums per square metre than any other city in the world. Combine this with an acclaimed club culture and a large but walkable historic centre and there are plenty of reasons for tourists to visit the city.

    After college I looked into these sorts of jobs in Europe, but you really do need to be an EU citizen unless you are already in Europe and can convince someone to hire you despite what your passport says. Working in a hostel in Amsterdam would certainly be fun!

    1. It is certainly far more difficult for non EU travellers. Under the table jobs are possible but only if arranged on the spot.

    My name is Ruben, I have 26 years and I’m from Barcelona. I love Amsterdam and the Dutch, in principle this is for a season, but would have no objection to stay forever. This would be a great opportunity and a great experience course. I am hard working, polite and responsible, I consider myself a very happy person and because of that I have no problem to relate to anyone. I wonder if they have a vacancy available for this month or next. Thank you very much.

      Hi Harry, there’s no point sending us your CV as there is nothing we can do with it. Instead, follow the links I’ve given in this post and there should (this article is now 2 years old and things might have changed) be instructions on the websites of the hostels on how to apply. The best way to get these type of jobs is by being on the ground and asking around, so having two friends that can put you up for a while is a massive bonus. Good luck.
