  • Description


    We are an up and coming hostel, located in South Delhi’s posh Sainik Farms area. The location of the hostel is a perfect abode for those who are looking for peace and tranquility as it is situated in a quiet locality surrounded by greenery, overlooking nearby farms.

    This is a family-run hostel which includes myself (Sam, 32), my younger sister and mother who both live abroad but visit the villa occasionally. We are in the final stages of setting up the hostel and expect to be operational in early May,(edit - aug 2018 update - we are already operational) so we need all hands on deck! Although we try not to be picky with volunteers, we do need a few talented artists to help with signs, murals, creative mosaic tiling, and smaller crafts such as bamboo lampshades, plant holders, etc. You do not need to be good at all of these things - any kind of help will be appreciated as long as it's given with willingness!

    If you’re looking to break away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet you still want to be close enough to restaurants, shopping and the nightlife of Delhi, then our hostel will be a perfect place for you!

    We provide volunteers with a clean and safe bed space with our other guests, 3 meals a day and discounted drinks, smokes and items on the gift shop.

    In exchange we are actively seeking volunteers for a minimum stay of 2 weeks to 2 months.
