  • Description


    We run two beautiful guesthouses in Tanah Rata in Cameron Highlands. Both guesthouses are very cozy and small. We are looking for somebody who can help us to run one of them. The guest house which you will be helping at has only 8 rooms (4 private rooms and 4 dormitories) and it's located in the center of Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands.

  • Help


    We regularly need volunteer to help at the reception but we also need someone for general maintenance sometimes.

    You will be at the reception on the afternoon/evenings. Your daily task will be:
    Checking and replying E-mails, bookings and reviews from websites.
    Keeping the booking sheets updated.
    Checking in and out guests and informing/explaining them about the tours and places to visit in Cameron Highlands.
    Preferred stay at least 2 weeks.

    We are looking for somebody reliable who will like to speak and interact with our guests and maybe has some hostel experiences (not a must, but you need to be familiar with computer and booking websites).
    It's a non-paid exchange, but on your volunteering hours, please do your duties responsibly.
    If you are only looking for a free place to sleep and free food do not contact us (Previously we have received some exchange helpers who just want to sit down and relax/take it easy and do nothing.).

    We want our volunteers to enjoy their stay with us, learn something as well (local culture and how to run the hostel, etc.), therefore we would appreciate respect and reliability. But you will also have plenty of time to go hiking and discover the region.
