  • Description


    We are a new hostel in Goa, India. I am looking for help with Redecorating, and daily help around the hostell. This project is a family project and my sister, mom and dad are actively involved in the project. We plan to make this hostel the cleanest, most social and fun place for tourists to be. Volunteers would get any accommodation available at the hostel, along with 2 home cooked Indian meals and breakfast and lots of free time. We as a family would take care of the volunteers as our own family.

    Here are some things we could use help with:

    We are planning to build a cafe area and need help with redesign and decoration.

    Daily help around the hostel with check-ins, check-outs, food orders, guest interaction etc.

    We would like to paint some beautiful murals or designs in our hostel, also anyone who is good with crafts or decorating is welcome to join. Any ideas are welcome!

    PLEASE SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE! Please tell us briefly about yourself, how you will help us & which of these 3 categories you fall under. Keep it short and sweet so you catch our attention!
