    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We hope the experience will be fun with all the exposure to different guests and the local activities around, to know travellers and locals in person and to introduce some of the fun things to do in Sandakan and places nearby. Traveling is a very fun thing to do, to help in a hostel is also equally fun. Shared happiness is always doubled happiness.

    Help

    At the moment, we mainly focus on beautifying the hostel with gardening. Help in enhancing our eco-project on composting.
    Extra bonus skill set will be making videos and basic photography skills.
    We love learning, if you have a skill or two to impart, we would be as happy as the chirping birds. For instance, mixology.
    Volunteers can also introduce sessions of working out, yoga, massage course, etc within the hostel or even organize outdoor activities with in-house guests, for instance the free city walking tour, free trekking trails nearby the hostel.
