    WE ARE VERY BUSY WITH OUR FESTIVALS AT THE MOMENT AND DUE TO THAT WE ARE STRUGGLING TO REPLY TO EVERY MESSAGE! EXCUSE US AND MUCH LOVE :)

    Xin chào and hello there :) Our hostel family is made up of half vietnamese and half western staff (around 20 people total) that run this place everyday. The vibe here is not for everyone and it’s not a 5 Star Hotel. We are located 8.5km outside of town in a remote bay with a private beach.
    It’s a crazy place, it’s a chill place, it’s a place to get creative and love, to bring out your passion and best in you, to discover yourself and feel the energy to do amazing things. We want to unfuck the world, but also not give a shit in the right way. Everyday is a blessing to be alive here and we are a bunch of happy, appreciating, chaotic but still responsible, kind and loving people.
    This place attracts the most interesting and wonderful travellers who become part of the family, so it’s a big opportunity to make beautiful and unique connections with new friends.
    We have a big wooden house with a large chillout area and hammocks to relax. It’s an old house so some things are second hand (f.e. the water sometimes doesn’t run for an hour, the roof may leak a tiny bit, the bathrooms could possibly show some mould in small parts…), but we will have a big renovation in a few months and if you are a cool soul you can definetely deal with it. Across the road is the beach with more hammocks and our beach bar with legendary nights. We have a small stage with electric guitar, base guitar, drum kit, microphones and big speakers, so 2x per week we have fixed live music and on the other nights it’s either jamming or whatever fun we find.
    We really care about the environment so we start recycling projects like making waste into art, starting a compost, avoiding plastic as much as possible etc.
    Every two weeks we have a festival with workshops in the afternoon (new) like Hula Hoop, environmental education, jewelry, spiritual knowledge etc, BBQ on the beach (as well VEGAN options!), live music in the evening, DJ till sunrise (techno, psytrance, drum & base and that sort of stuff), live paintings and face painting, big bonfire, fireshow and whatever magic people contribute each time.

    Help

    We are looking for volunteers who are respectful to both people and the environment. You are required to help at the reception either in the morning shift or afternoon shift. It includes Check-in and Check-out, giving informations about this place, bringing guests to their bed, clean tables, sometimes help doing the dishes which you don’t have to but would be kind, help out at the festivals and enjoy the vibe. We have a minimum stay of one month, food and accommodation is included.
    Please tell us a bit about your yourself: Your name, age, a bit about your personality, if you had any experience in hospitality, if you are a musician, artist, fireperformer, dancer, someone who could host a workshop, permaculturist or someone very passionate about the environment with recycling ideas to bring a little change into this world, or anything else you think of that is good for us to know. If you have a link to a website or facebook/instagram please let us know. We are excited to hear from you :)

    We also have short term volunteer positions available for live music and festivals, so even when you are just travelling through you can give us a message.

    What else ...

    We are on an island and surrounded by many isolated areas of outstanding natural beauty, including beaches, bays, hikes, rock climbing opportunities, cliff diving, kayaking, jungles, mountains, rivers, villages, abandoned war tunnels... places that ordinary tourists would never get to see. The best to get around is with a motorbike/scooter which you can rent from here. The town is an around 15-20 minutes’ drive or if you feel sporty it takes around two hours to walk.
