    Description

    Come and help our green-loving hostel in Kampot, Cambodia launch and grow! Seeking people to manage the desk as well as various social mediums to promote events and expand our clientele.

    We are a family-and-friend run hostel on the outskirts of Kampot - We have local visitors all the time!
    This month we've had impromptu BBQs, Fish Frys, Pool Tournaments, Birthday Bashes, and more. We're working on making these events public so that more people can benefit from and enjoy our cultural exchanges.

    This month we've had impromptu BBQs, Fish Frys, Pool Tournaments, Birthday Bashes, and more. We're working on making these events public so that more people can benefit from and enjoy our cultural exchanges.
    There are always opportunities for language exchange, as well. In fact, it would behoove you to be interested in learning some Khmer. It will endear you to many of the locals, and you'll have a much better time!

    Help

    Though our soft-launch was almost a year ago, we are still not quite ready for our Grand Opening.
    We are looking for qualified computer-literates who have myriad ideas about growing small businesses.
    We need people who are comfortable using mediums such as short term rental websites to keep track of and check in/out customers, as well as social media websites and more to promote events and expand our patronage.


    To diversify your workday, there are always opportunities to clean up around the place, help in the organic garden, , source food from the local market, hang out in the hammocks, or shoot some pool.
    We're working on building an actual pool - stay tuned!

    Accommodation

    We can offer you anything from a private bungalow (great for couples) to a tent in the 'treehouse' or garden. We have dorms, hammocks, and undeveloped spaces that would be exciting side projects, if you're so inclined.
    Right now, we don't always have gourmet meals, but there are plenty of super inexpensive food stalls serving local Khmer food within walking/driving distance. TukOut (the local Uber Eats) also delivers a plethora of Western/Thai/Khmer/Indian food options right to our gate.

    On site, we have a Simple Bar and lovely outdoor kitchen that is usually stocked with bread, peanut butter, butter, mayonnaise, chili sauce, rice, eggs, tea, coffee, beer, and noodles. You can use anything in the kitchen, any time you'd like. You can also buy food in the local market and cook whenever you want.

    If you are a media marketing manager and a chef (or if you're a pair of people with those talents between you), we are interested in restocking the kitchen and offering some food options for guests and staff.

    We have a garden! We are working on building and maintaining the organic garden that comprises most of the outdoor space. We have fresh coconuts, bananas, red and green chilies, and basil. Still just budding are passionfruit, dragonfruit, leafy greens, and more!

    Wifi is superb throughout the property (and beyond).

    We have DIY Laundry.

    We can offer motorbikes for rent at a discounted rate through one of our partners.

    We have a dog! She is an absolute sweetheart, and likes to lend a hand during many of our projects. She is extra affectionate right meow, as she just had puppies. Must love dogs!
