  • Description

    Description

    Located just outside of Ha Giang town, our hostel is a real jungle retreat, complete with a traditional wooden stilt-house, swimming pool and surrounded by lush green jungle and misty mountains!
    Its a new hostel (10 months) and so there's lots of work to be done; building the name, increasing efficiencies, environmental impact, guest experience/offering etc etc.
    We are by far the nicest hostel in Ha Giang, our aim is to also be the best!
    We have an enviable location, waking distance to a very traditional Vietnamese farming village, rice fields, banana and corn plantations. This is an ideal excursion for guests but we need a hand to guide them!
    The hostel backs on to a river streams which runs through our grounds, the gardens are planted with numerous fruit trees, palms and tropical flowers, we aim to blend the hostel with it surroundings, there's nature all around!
    We have a few cats, not technically ours but they hang out here and we feed them, the more they are around western people, the less timid they are becoming.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We employ local staff that need to improve their English, whilst they are accustomed to meeting westerners their culture is very different.
    Vietnam is not yet high on social/environmental impact and this is something we want to build on. We love Vietnam and we love our location, reaching out and building relations with locals is also a priority for us.
    You'll also meet people from all over the world, part of the role is to socialise with the guests and have a laugh!

    Help

    I need proactive people with broad skill sets, the role includes everything; check in, cleaning, entertaining guests. People that see things need doing and just do it! I am also seeking ideas and creative people for improvements plus there's always maintenance and DIY needed in running a hostel.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can laze around in the hammocks, top up your tan on the sun loungers, dip in the pool or even have a work-out in our jungle gym! You can go into Ha Giang town itself and have a muse around, there's also a waterfall about 12km away, its a 20 minute ride there, the scenery is incredible here and you can swim in any of the 3 ponds below the waterfall.
