Early Bird Breakfast Employee (m/f/x) - Amsterdam

as of now - part-time - in Amsterdam


a&o: we are simple, honest and always with a smile. Since 2000 we are expanding Europe-wide, true to our mission EVERYONE CAN TRAVEL. With more than 30 houses in over 20 cities we are Europe’s biggest hostel provider, making our mission a reality! All our sites realize a standardized concept and are supported by our headquarters in Berlin.

Flat hierarchies and a culture of open feedback make the foundation of our work environment shaped by dynamics, growth, and innovation. With that, we offer ideal career opportunities for everyone, whether expert or career changer. We emphasize to treat each other in a fair, social, and responsible way. Because together, not only working is more fun – but also success.


  • You will be responsible for ensuring a full breakfast service during the opening hours of the buffet – this means:
  • The preparation of breakfast is your main responsibility
  • During service, you will keep track of various checklists and the temperature of offered dished
  • To give our guests a good start into their day, you will offer hosting-services and attend to their needs
  • Following buffet-hours, you will ensure kitchen, buffet and dining room are left neat and tidy
  • The foundation of a good breakfast is a full pantry, so you always have to take care of stockings and orders
  • You do not mind to be trained as an all-round employee, so filling-in for other shifts i.e. bar, reception or housekeeping once in a while is not a problem for you (you will receive training for all of these jobs).



  • For an early bird like you its second nature to be cheerful and good-humoured, even in the early hours of the day
  • Experience in the service-industry is an advantage, but more importantly, you are motivated and enthusiastic
  • You have a great sense of responsibility for the tasks you are given
  • Our work setting is constantly changing, so having a flexible attitude is absolutely imperative
  • Since shifts start early, living in Amsterdam or surrounding residential areas is ideal
  • You are a team player – working in a team, or leading it, comes natural to you
  • Good English skills are a must, Dutch skills are highly preferred, knowledge of additional languages is an advantage



  • An exciting, responsible job in one of the top-innovators amongst Hostel-providers is expecting you
  • You can experience an team-oriented work-environment with loads of room for developing and implementing your own ideas and your personal growth
  • Short decision-making-processes and open communication are a major benefit of your new working-context
  • Flexible working-hours: up to 5 mornings/week (starting 5am)
  • Profit from our attractive staff benefits programme, by (i.e.) free accommodation in all a&o’s, a wide range of subsidized cultural and recreational offers and events
