I am an engineering graduate currently living in rishikesh. After running sucessfully my first small backpacker hostel in Agra am here for my next step ahead. Am following my dream to open hostels where travellers can feel like home, which is not just about money, where they can trust everyone & can live freely.
The hostel has been open for six months, and is one of the popular hostel in town. There are always lots of people coming and going, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and comfortable place.
At the hostel we have a small team of people but we can always use some extra enthusiastic help! I think it's a great opportunity for a traveler to contribute at the hostel and be able to stay in Rishikesh for a while.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
It is such a nice place for a traveler/foreigner to stay for a while. You get to feel at home easily, meet other travelers and will get know people fast. Travelers can learn cooking Indian dishes and participate in morning yoga classes at hostel.
It's important that the volunteer has a good time, but at the same time when helping out at the hostel he/she knows responsibilities.
The volunteer will be helping out during the day, doing the following:
Basic reception work, checking guests in and out, helping them with info on trips, restaurants, buses etc
Doing cleaning work.
Minimum of 2 weeks.
Most important that you are motivated to help out and want to contribute to a good atmosphere of the hostel.
We are looking for motivated people with minimum age of 20, fluent in English. We would love to host people who are web designer or have good hand on making somethings( artists) on wall or decorating the space.
