    If you are interested in Taiwanese or Mandarin, we can do language exchanges in our large common room. At the moment we are self-learning Japanese and Spanish online!

  • Help


    Ideally, we’d like to have travelers who are honest, positive, responsible, enthusiastic, extroverted, and friendly.

    We are especially looking for people skilled in drawing, painting, blogging/article writing and with some experience in reception.
    If you have any of these skills, we’ll be happy to hear from you!

    An hostel always needs some cleaning and maintenance, so we ask to all volunteers to help us on these duties.
    As well, we want that all volunteers help in creating a social atmosphere, chatting with fellow travelers and making them feeling at home.

    Duties are negotiable, so feel free to let us know if there is something you're especially interested in!
