We have a home stay in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It’s not a big homestay, just 1 room Queen size bed for 2 people and 1 room Bunk bed for 5 people. We need volunteers who can help us to clean the homestay and the house, prepare breakfast, maintain the garden, do the maintenance of the home stay, interact with the guests and make them feel comfortable and help the guest if they need anything. If you are a creative person in any kind of way this place is the place for you to show your creativity because we have almost all the needed equipment for it and we will support your idea if it fits the theme of our place.
We will provide meals for you if you eat at home and you can have private room with fan in the main house. We have internet WiFi that you can use 24 hours and you can use our bicycle to go around.
You can help us 5 hours per day and you can have 2 days off per week that you can choose. However, please inform us before you want to have days off. We prefer start to work in the morning at 06.30 am. Our place is close to Giwangan bus station ( the main bus station in Yogyakarta), approximately 1 km or 20 minutes walking from our place. If you want to go to the city and see local sight seeing such as Sultan Place, Water castle, you can use our bicycle or use public transportation, for example bus or "GOJEK" (online taxi scooters). If you want to go to Prambanan and Boroboudur temple is better to use bus. Or even if we didn’t use our scooter you can use it and explore much more of Yogyakarta area such as the beaches, cave, mountains or just explore the jungle area.
