  • Description

    Description

    We are a backpackers hostel located in Goa - to travel is to live. And this was probably why we started backpacker hostels in the first place. We’ve travelled the world and are bringing a little bit of everything to India as well as a little bit of India to the world.

    Making sustainable decisions lies very close to our hearts and is at the core of our hostels. We staff our hostels with members of the local community and are committed to growing our employees as we grow our hostels.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Staying in backpackers hostels is such a unique experience because you meet people from all over the world, all with different takes on life, different backgrounds and different experiences. But all have one common passion; travel. Volunteering in our hostels is a great way to travel for longer without spending up your budget. You get to know one place with more depth and understanding rather than just passing through - and have an awesome time while doing it! We are located 5 minutes from the beach, and in the heart of all the best parties and clubs in Goa. Spend your down time catching some rays during the day, and raving all night.

    Take a look at our feedback section to read the experiences of our previous WorkAwayers :)

    We are looking for volunteers to join the family and help host events and activities at our bar and pool for our guests in our hostel in North Goa. This ranges from taking everyone on nights out, hosting communal dinners and game nights, and going for sunset beers.

    Workawayers also take care of showing the hostel guests to their rooms, promoting the events and activities and any other bits and bobs that come up in the day to day life of the hostel. This might be helping the chef in the kitchen or doing some lifting or cleaning, helping around breakfast time, or popping to the shops for supplies :) We are looking for sociable, honest people with super high energy, big smiles and good vibes to share with everyone.

    Additionally, any musicians, photographers, masseurs, muralists or yoga teachers passing through, we would love to host for any duration!

    Our season is from November to March however we host volunteers all throughout the year. During off season (and monsoons - June to September) the vibe is significantly different but by no means less wonderful. We are more than happy to answer any questions that you might have :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Whether you want to experience the culture, meet new people, experience the monsoons, chill to the max or simply party till your pants fall off, Goa is the place. There is something for everyone here and no two places are the same.

    We're a 7 minute walk from the beach (with 3 more beaches within a 15 minute walk). During the season we run a hostel shuttle bus each day to the local attractions such as the big nights out, vibrant markets and historical sites - theres never a dull day! However, if you want to have a chilled day and recharge your batteries, you can relax in the hammocks in the jungle, read a book in our air conditioned cafe or sunbathe on the rooftop with the monkeys.

    If you would like to volunteer with us during the off season, you'll find a totally different Goa. It is an incredible time here as the crowd shrinks but gets much more intimate. The big parties shut down but the little live gigs and jamming sessions pop up everywhere. When the rains come, Goa is at its most beautiful as all the plants spring to life again. We go hiking up to waterfalls and jumping in wells... Watching the storms come and go is one of our favourite things to do here.

    A few things to note:
    - We are very flexible with the length of stay here but we would need a minimum of 2 weeks commitment in order for you to get the best out of your experience with us.
    - We have a strict no drugs policy for all staff members inside the hostel.
    - 24/7 support will be available to you. Even if its 4am and you just need help finding your flip flop, we're here :)
