  • Description


    We are a backpacker hostel in Anjuna, Goa. We were the 2nd hostel to open in India and have now been going for over half a decade! We have a beautiful 10 room hostel on a large, planted property with hammocks, chill out spots and its own bar attached. The hostel has its own kitchen, dining area and communal space with a T.V. We also have 3 dogs who were rescued from the streets of Goa and who we love as part of the family! We are looking for fun, energetic people to enjoy our lifestyle and contribute to the experience of our guests.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In Goa you can find lots of places which teach yoga, meditation, cooking (local food) as well, of course, as lots of parties and festivals that will blow your mind. Increasingly we are running excursions through the hostel and expanding our own internal events. For the more adventurous among you, there are also a number of backpackers working with or associated with the hostel who have returned year on year and can take you to places well off the beaten path.

  • Help


    We are looking for personalities who are comfortable getting to know a range of people of different nationalities and backgrounds and who, in doing so, can help to keep up the fun and social ambience of our hostel and bar. The role will be mainly based at the bar with flexibility if you can offer specific skills, or for ad hoc projects that need to be completed around the hostel (whether that be welcoming guests or property maintenance/improvement etc.) The role could also include a small amount of flyering and regular help with running hostel events such as beer pong and karaoke nights (and no, you don't have to sing!) To summarise, about 50% of the job is about making friends and showing people a good time; the rest is about doing so in a responsible way that means that you also get your work done. If you think you can vibe with that then you're going to be a great fit!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are situated a 10 minute walk from Anjuna beach, close to which you'll find an awesome flea market every Wednesday. We are also surrounded by a number of great restaurants a matter of meters from the front door. Most things are accessible on foot but we arrange scooter and bicycle rental, as well as a number of taxi-driven trips to churches, waterfalls, temples, spice plantations etc. As a heads up, we think that if you come and volunteer with us once, you will probably return or never leave (both happen regularly!) See you soon :) x
