I was wondering if anyone had knowledge of how easy/difficult/impossible it is to get a job that pays under the counter in Europe (specifically London, France, or Italy)... ie working at a hostel, waitressing, bartending, etc... ??

I've also seen hostels mentioning they will offer free accomodation for about 5 hours worth of work around the hostel. I'd imagine it'd be mostly cleaning and the like, but then you'd have a free place to stay! And probably meet up with the locals.

Cool

That is a great question. I'd like to spend some time over seas eventually, and have pondered this same question.
