    Description

    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.
