  • Description

    Description

    This is a young community hostel & art space located in a village near Auroville- an international community that has over 3000 residents from almost 50 countries across the world. Auroville exists as an experiment in human unity & diversity, transformation of consciousness, sustainable living and the future cultural, environmental, social and spiritual needs of mankind.

    We quit city life to start a community hostel for like minded people to be closer to nature, live in a sustainable manner, create art, have a safe space for expression and share a part of our lives with each other. Music & Art move us and we are trying to find ways that we can support artists in their journey!

    A very important attribute we are looking for in our volunteer is being able to maintain the great atmosphere that the hostel is known for! Being friendly with the guests; a good taste of music would be great too. We are looking for someone social with an open mind, someone willing to learn and someone proactive who is willing to perform various tasks throughout the day, and someone who is passionate about helping fellow travelers on their adventures. We are looking for someone who does not consider volunteering in a hostel a “job” or “chore”, but more of a “passion” and way of life, as this is how we consider our lives in the hostel.
