    Description

    Looking to volunteer on a beautiful tropical island in Malaysia? Then look no further!

    We are a hostel based in a traditional house, located on the island of Langkawi, the jewel of Kedah. We are located in Pantai Tengah to the south of the island, just a few minutes away from the tourist hot-spot of Pantai Cenang and the beautiful beaches.

    Our hostel is still a work in progress so having any particular skills such as cleaning, artwork or construction, or just able to lift heavy things, is an added bonus.

    We have an on-site bar and restaurant, as well as a huge variety of restaurants and bars in the nearby area. There is a 24 hour minimart next door to our property. Pantai Tengah is also home to the late nightlife of Langkawi, and the late night bars are within a 100m walking radius.

    We welcome all kinds of specialties and skills so please be sure to add that into your application subject along with the month you will be here. Hope to have you on board!
