What is special about this opportunity?

Since we are a Christian hostel, a special aspect of our cleaner program is that we begin our work with a thirty minute discussion covering topics about the Bible and Christianity. Although we do not ask that you be Christian to work on our cleaning team, we ask that you respect our beliefs and opinions during your stay at our hostel.
