    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The volunteers will get hands on experience in operating the entertaiment tasks of a budget traveler hostel from the business point of view.
    They will be exposed to social exchanges with travelers from all over the world, as well as with the local neighborhood where they would experience a glimpse of rural Sri Lankan life in the south coast of Sri Lanka. Surf points nearby, guided tours and parties as our main activities.

    Breathtaking landscapes in both locations and many options to do around. As the island is small, is pretty easy to travel during your days off (the flexibility with the roster when possible will allow you to travel extra having your headquarter in our both hostels).
