Xin chao! We are a new hostel in the beautiful mountain town of Da Lat, run by Vietnamese with the help of our foreign guests. Our guests are mostly backpackers who are open and ready to share their travelling stories with you.
I am the owner of the hostel and I come from Vietnam. We also have three vietnamese employees here and my wife often comes to prepare lunch for the whole team.
As for my place, it is a small hostel for the backpackers. We have four rooms, two rooms for 6 people, one for eight and one for 10. We also have a common area, where we make breakfast every morning, but you can always use it for yourself. We also have a reception area and 4 bathrooms. The place is always clean and we the beds are very comfortable.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
The travellers will have a chance to dive into the vietnamese culture, improve your language skills by communicating with our guests from all around the world and get some useful tips from their travelling experience. You'll improve your organizational skills and you will get to work in an international team.
You will get the opportunity to enjoy the delicious coffee of Dalat, go stawberry picking, trekking, get lost on the narrow streets filled with mesmorizing French colonial buildings and of course try a sip of the local wine.
What we need:
If you're open-minded, sociable, positive yet hard-working person we will be happy to welcome you as part of our team. Your tasks will include mostly receptionist's duties such us welcoming the guests, check-ins and check-outs, managing the bookings and making sure our guests stay happy. We are also looking for someone who can help us with social media and with the organization of social events for the guests.
We are happy to consider people with all kinds of backgrounds so If you have some extra skills that were not mentioned above, don't forget to tell us about them.
What we have:
In exchange we will provide you with a free accommodation in one of the hostel's rooms, free breakfast & lunch and pocket money. But the most important part is that we will share our way of life with you. Traditional family lunches and delicious tea will be a part of the deal. Sometimes we like to take the guitar and sing a bit.
The city itself is a hidden gem of Vietnam. You won't see anything like this elsewhere in Vietnam. The town is surrounded by breathtaking mountains and waterfalls, with flower gardens and the lake, Granted, the weather is a bit cooler than in other places and it's better to pack a flannel shirt (or two) but the people here make up for it. Citizens of Dalat are happy to have foreign guests and, they are lovely and helpful. So, even though the size of Dalat is rather small, we guarantee you will not run out of things to do.
Sounds interesting? Then send us an application to become one of the wolfpack!
