Volunteer in the Czech Republic – Prague Hostel Internship

Prague , Czech Republic

This hostel in Prague was a great place to intern for those that are interested in a diverse new culture, traveling to excellent cities nearby, and loves historical architecture.

The absolute best part of interning at a hostel is that it provides an environment that you can’t get anywhere else: the daily encounters of people around the world. Not only are you most likely to work with several people whose native language is something other than English, but you will also meet people from all parts of the globe just by volunteering at a hostel. This was my favorite part about volunteering in the Czech Republic.

I now have several friends on Facebook that I love to see on my newsfeed, because now that they are back home, I am seeing posts from their home and cultures that I would of never got to see.

A typical day at the hostel can consist of either dong housekeeping, working the bar, or working reception. You can either work morning, evening, or night shift. The co-workers I work with are mainly interns who are around the same age and all very nice. Before you begin your work day, you are allowed to eat a free breakfast that is paid by the hostel, and actually quite good (even the hostel guests agree! Breakfast has jellies, breads, yogurts, granola, cereal, tea/coffee/chocolate milk, and my favorite: Nutella!).

Once you are finished with work your are free to explore the city as you please. With that being said, you will ALWAYS have someone to go exploring with. There are several days that I would meet a random guest at a hostel and we would explore Prague together. (Don’t forget, people staying at a hostel are on vacation and want to see as much of Prague as you do!) And once I had been in Prague for about a month, I knew all the fun and non-tourist places to go to give guests an even better experience in the city.

The location of the hostel was perfect. It was a short walk from the main part of Prague, but far enough away to where you can sleep at night without too much noise. It is in close walking distance from the river, which is where there are nice parks that you can spend your free days. I am a runner, so I actually took advantage of the river and ran it along side it, which were some of the most beautiful runs I’ve ever had.

The super store is right by the hostel and so is everything else you may need (groceries, electronics, etc). Other activities that you can do are in nearby cities. Some in other countries (Budapest is only 5 hours and Vienna is 3) and then there is hiking on the outskirts of Prague. Interning at the hostel for two months was a great way to spend my summer.
