 Min stay requested: at least 2 weeks

  • Description


    Ours is the first backpackers hostel of its kind in the Kas Region. With its gardens, bungalows, stone house dormitory and landscaping cut into the hillside, the authentic charm has been kept alive for thirty years.

    With the support of volunteers it has been reborn in the last five years after the construction of the new road and Kas Marina.

    Yoga, scuba course, are the activities of the camp.
    Scuba divers and backpackers are the common type of visitors.

    My name is Can. I am an agricultural engineer (Plant pathologist). After 10 years of agro business in Istanbul I moved to Kas¸ and have been running the camp for 15 years.

    Because The mission of Workaway is the cultural share, I kindly request my citizens not to send any request.

    Important note: people who give a commitment to come and do not do it without an excuse ( informing at least 3 days before) will be reported to Workaway council.

    Hoping to see you :)

    Kas is a wonderful town for volunteers especially if you love sea, nature and history.
    Volunteering has enormous benefits for you. You will get a unique insight into Kas (Antiphellos -Lycia) that most backpackers will never get to see.
