WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY!
My name is Loan
Me, my husband and my brother are running a Hostel in Ha Giang. We opened in november 2017. And since then we have welcome travelers from vietnam and all over the world.
We are located near the mountains 10 minutes drive from the city center, on the way to Dong Van Geopark.
Our family built the hostel by hand, using natural timbers and bamboo. It took us 4 months to build the rooms, the garden and the fish pond, and we are very proud of our achievement.

We have many kids in our family, during the weekends they come and visit so will have the chance to spend time with them
You will also get to explore Ha Giang when we have guests
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The main type of help that we need from you is customer service and online marketing (Social media managing, promotion of our services and tours).
But there are many other tasks that might vary every day depending on the season. Bring your best attitude and proactive minds to help. We need you. :)
Teaching english to local children: some days local children visit us, you can play with them and exchange your english skills.
House keeping: our staff has everything in control, but some days we might need extra help with the cleaning or gardening. But in general just help around the place when you think it is needed.
You can also baby sit. We have a baby and we would appreciate it if sometimes you could help take care of our baby.
-3 meals per day. The volunteer is in charge of cooking its breakfast, but lunch and dinner will be cooked by us.
-Free tea, water and coffee
- Bicycle and motorbike to explore the surrounding areas from our hostel or going to the city
We prefer people who can stay a minimum of 3 weeks. We normally only accept one volunteer but depending on the season (high season - september to march) we will consider accepting two.
After doing the loop you can share your experience with our customers, give them advice and if you want, you can go with them as tour guides / easy riders as part of your volunteering tasks.
RULES: we only have a few
After 10 p.m. Be more quiet for the neighbours and my baby
Volunteers clean after themselves.
Volunteers can use the kitchen and take some food (bread, eggs, pancakes, coffee, tea) to cook their own breakfast.
No shoes inside the rooms.
If you have any food allergy or dietary needs let us know (vegetarians, vegans)
communication is key so for if for any reason you are not happy during your stay please talk to us about it. Im sure by the end of your stay you will feel like family.
We are looking forward to meeting you,
