    Description

    We are a 2 year old hostel located at Jalan Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur and we are very excited to work with volunteers as we have just launched another new floor comprising of new dorm and new rooms, in addition to the current bunk bed dormitory. This cozy hostel has two floors accommodating backpackers and long-term guests from around the world. We are looking forward to accept two to three volunteers to share their culture, language besides manage and take care of the place. Ideas on how to make the hostel more amazing is most welcomed .

    We have got one staff and 2owners. Staff will monitor the booking system, house maintenance, collections and payments , reporting to the owners .

    With free accommodation and a simple breakfast meal included, volunteers can arrange their schedule among themselves for reception, welcoming guests and cleaning duties. It is fun and simple to follow. There would be plenty of time for volunteers to explore around the city.

    Currently we are hosting many international long term guests from China Morocco France Korea Vietnam etc where we share lots of cultural exchange and learn languages from each other . Guests and volunteers share their cooking culinary skills and often have weekend get together where we share our experiences .
