Jobs

Thanks for your interest in being part of our team.
It is crucial to speak German very well to be able to work here. For reception it is fundamental to be fluent in German and speak and write as if it's your mother tongue. That's why we continue in German:

100% climate neutral

In 2011 Backpackers Villa was the first hostel in Switzerland to be certified 100% climate neutral. Ever since we have been compensating our CO2 footprint with myclimate.org.

"Do the best and offset the rest"
Climate protection is vital for ourselves and the generations to come. We strive to reduce our emissions and we offset, what we can't avoid. Myclimate carbon offset projects such as mobisol are helping to reduce our all CO2 footprint worldwide.

Working environmentally conscious

We have installed an automatic airing system not only in the modern building but also in the traditional chalet buildling, which allows better climate in the rooms and reduction of energy use.
Also, we work with a heat recovery system in the showers which allows to pre-heat the fresh cold water with the heat of the used water. joulia.com

Since 2009 we have used solar panels to help heat our water. This October we have added photovoltaic panels and can now produce parts of our electricity ourselves as well. Before we have used 100% water power.

This is how we put into practice what is our intention: "We act ecologically sensitive in order to preserve creation whilst keeping people in the focus." (business vision of 1997)

Check out what our photovoltaic panels produce every day
