  • Description


    Hello Workawayers from around the world!

    We are Aizada and Jalil, a Kyrgyz couple who speak English and love travelers, so we have opened a hostel in Karakol, because we love hosting people from everywhere ! The hostel is located in the center of Karakol, we already have 5 rooms opened but the place still needs a bit of work, like the garden, the decoration etc and also helping around the hostel, welcoming guests... The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, we love our job and our city and of course the lake and the mountains all around. You can enjoy hiking and trekking, horse riding, skiing in winter, swimming in Issyk Kul lake in the summer. There are always many travelers from all around the world so you will never feel lonely and you will of course learn a lot about Kyrgyz culture. You can also take Russian or Kyrgyz lessons if you like.

    Welcome to Karakol !

  • Help


    We need help making this hostel welcoming. Our garden needs maintenance, our walls need your creative decorative skills, and of course we need help with general hostel maintenance, such as cleaning and changing the sheets, some shopping in the bazaar etc.. If you're up for it, we also need help developing the place on the internet, which we are not great at, and there's also a bit of renovating work to do.

Aizada cooks amazing meals for people every day, so you will get breakfast lunch and dinner if you like. We even have a bar if you like some beer in the evenings. There is of course a washing machine, showers, hairdryers...
