I started working at Cats Hostel to gain some experience at the age of 24 and I ended up staying for over 3 years. As a workplace, you will be sure to find a family as well as a place to grow professionally and personally. I will be forever thankful for the good times that Cats gave me!

One of the best parts of working at Cats was definitely being able to interact with people from all over the world on a daily basis, and with that expand my worldview.

Working at Cats hostel has made me grow and learn to be organized and structured, while always being a relaxed and fun atmosphere to work at. I always felt like going to meet my friends rather than going to work, and most days ended up hanging out with my colleagues or guests!
