Hostel Superstar

Payment: Paid Position (20.00)
Location: Kaikoura
Region: Marlborough/Blenheim/Picton
Experience: No Experience Necessary
Listing Added: 12/10/2021

Dusky Lodge & Backpackers is looking for superstars to join our team. 

We are on the hunt for happy, friendly and enthusiastic workers who want to spend time in Kaikoura. We have a swimming pool, spa tub, onsite Mexican cafe and even a floofy dog who just wants all the pats. Located ten minutes walking distance to town or the supermarket, we are the ideal location to use as a base to explore the mountains, learn to surf or sample all the beers the local brewery sells. 

The role is for 12 hours of work per week, typically spread across 3 or 4 days. The job description includes a little bit of everything, starting with general housekeeping, cleaning or laundry to basic maintenance or even running our social media account. While this position is paid at $20/h + 8% holiday pay, we deduct rent, power, unlimited free wifi, facility usage and coffee & tea which will be equal to your weekly wage. There is the potential to clock extra paid hours when we require more help, this will be communicated beforehand. Additionally, there is paid work around Kaikoura and we can hook you up with the local bars/restaurants that are currently hiring. 

Requirements are simple, a valid visa and a minimum commitment of 1 month. No past experience needed, we are looking for candidates with the right attitude and are happy to teach. 

If this sounds like you, please email a cv and a short write up about yourself to

Look forward to hearing from you.
Team Dusky
