    First of all, you should know that this is not a job opportunity, instead we welcome you as an active member of our family!

    We prefer if you stay for at least 2 weeks. That allows us to really get to know each other and make this experience not only about the help but also about the cultural exchange, making it more meaningful. It is very important for us that you have the chance to immerse yourself in the day to day of our beloved project. We are a small guesthouse with 10 rooms only and we have 2-3 permanent staff depending on season. if you have only a month for traveling, we would not encourage instead you should have fun traveling and this is from experience of many 'no show', it affects our schedule. It's a non-paid exchange, but on your volunteering hours, please do your duties responsibly.
    If you are only looking for a free place to sleep and free food do not contact us (Previously we have received some exchange helpers who just want to sit down and relax/take it easy and do nothing.).

    We want our volunteers to enjoy their stay with us, learn something as well (local culture and how to run the hostel, etc.), Therefore, we would appreciate, respect and reliability. But you will also have plenty of time to go explore and discover the region.

    We have a small cafe and a great common area here to meet new friend/traveler. Our cafe also selling tea, coffee, beer etc.

    We are looking for vibrant people than can help us create an awesome and interactive environment. Some of the things we need help with are:

    - Reception (Checking guests in/out, managing bookings & emails)
    - Help clean rooms
    - Clean bathroom/toilet
    - Laundry
    - Paintwork / Mural design
    - Marketing / Social Media
    - Small renovation work
    - Organizing events
    - Interior Design
    - Musicians
    - Performance Artists

    And even though we have a list of ideas we'd like to make happen, we are always open to suggestions and we encourage you to have initiative and bring your own flair to our nest!

    We don't mind couples, but some of the activities require only one person, so we hope you don't mind to be split up. If you are only looking for a free place to sleep and free food do not contact us (Previously we have received some exchange helpers who just want to sit down and relax/take it easy and do nothing.).

    During time off, helpers are able to explore the island. Langkawi is a well known holiday destination in Malaysia, an archipelago of 99 islands at the edge of the Andaman Sea, 60 SM north of Penang. A substantial part of the island is covered with virgin rainforest, good for jungle trekking and bird watching: eagles and hornbills are abundant. Watersport (exept for diving or snorkeling), kayaking, bike riding. You can explore the island with a rented motorbike or just relax in a tropical environment. Quite frequently we see groups of dolphins, even in harbour.
