  • Description


    We are a small hostel in Ipoh, Perak. ( Perak has been listed as among the Top 10 'must visit' in 2017, according to world-famous Lonely Planet ! )The dorms can accomodate up to 30 persons. Our travellers come from all over the world.

    We organise our own alternative tours that show the hidden gems of the Ipoh region. We plan to open a small gallery/concert spot in 2017 in our building.

    The hostel is run by 2 open-minded youngsters (30+ but still kicking), from Malaysia and Belgium. We hope to give you an unforgettable Malaysia experience!

    We will show you the real Malaysia. We'll take you to the tourist hotspots and beyond. We would love it if you are creative or bring your music instruments.

  • Help


    We would like our volunteers to help us with the cleaning for about 1 - 2 hours a day. In addition to that we would also need you to be around the hostel for check-in / check-out. (while enjoying our library of books/dvds :) )

    Sometimes this will be a few hours in the morning, sometimes in the evening. The workload is minimal and if there is more then 1 volunteer all the tasks can be divided. Please note for couples & friends: we will ask you to work in different shifts!

    We are looking for a mature person with a good knowledge of English (important!!)
