    Description

    Hi dear Workawayers,

    Me and my husband rent an old historical big house 6 years ago in İzmir. We renovated it as a hostel. At the beginning we had lots of things to do. Construction, painting, designing the rooms etc. Now we have small things to do. Sometimes toilets and showers needs to be repaired or kitchen stuff. We spend most of our working hours to welcome guest and prepare best place for their stay. We are doing regular cleaning everyday. We have a nice garden with lots of fruit trees and flowers. We take care of them, giving water when they need.

    İzmir is a lovely city. If you want to give a break for your trip in this city, our place is the best. You can help us and enjoy the city and being together. We have long term guests. You can be friend with them. They are so nice and friendly. They are form all around the world, mostly South America :) We try to go beach once a week.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers can learn many things from our place. Here is very peaceful. They will learn many things without any effort. We are learning together. We are respectful with each other and to the nature. We dont use any chemicals in our hostel. We prepare our own washing powder and cleaning staff.

    We use olive oil soap, baking soda and ashes for the cleaning. We recycle our rubbish. We prepare breakfast every morning for us and our guests. They are all organic and homemade. We prefer to shop locals instead of supermarkets. We have a small garden and many fruit trees and plants. We live with them in a harmony.

    Help

    We welcome volunteers who will help us as a receptionist. When the guests come to our place the receptionist check him in and show around the hostel, make the guest comfort. The volunteer should speak English fluently. Because most of our guest are from different countries. And during their helping hours they need to take care of the hostel. Keep it nice and tidy. Be aware of the people and their needs and questions.
