    Description

    ONLY ONE WORKAWAY HOSTED AT ANY ONE TIME.

    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!

    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!
