If you are working in a front line position the job is enjoyable with many perks. If you are a supervisor or higher, you may have a different experience. The job can be very busy in high season and very boring in low season.

General manager is extremely disconnected and very sexist with his employees which gives him little to no understanding to a lot of issues on site. His tenure seems to have given him reigns to endless chaos and a hall pass with Human Resources. The old adage “we’re like a family” should be a clear sign this is NOT a family. Over worked, under paid and never appreciated staff.

it is a great place to work with even better management. All the staff become to feel like family. It is a beautiful facility on a great property in an amazing small village. I always want to go back and work there

Working at a hostel is a great way for you to feel like you are not working at all. Though the salary is nothing to get worked up about, the stress-free, very social atmosphere at the hostel is the positive trade off.

worked in bill peyto's cafe; it is always very well received by the public at large and most visiting guests. I was always happy with the food I was serving. The cafe gets very busy, and I liked the speed at which we flipped tables and worked as a team.
