  • Description


    We are a Vietnamese family running a Hostel in Ho Chi Minh City. Our business is very young so we would like to meet experienced backpackers who would share their travel experience and Introduce their culture to us, bring new Ideas and feedback on how to make our hostel the best of it's kind. We welcome people from all parts of the world to join our dream team!
    We have been successfully running a business-oriented hostel for two years, now we would like to design our new hostel to fit tourists' and backpackers' needs.

    At the moment my English is not very good (this text has been translated by one of our workawayers) so I will need your help with communicating with customers and translating various things, practicing English with me. We also want you to help us with computer skills and promoting our hostel online. And If you are a creative type, come and help us redecorate the place!

    We also want you to know that we do not have any previous experience using this platform so we will welcome any feedback that will help us become better. We would like to do our best to be great hosts for you and make sure you have an experience of a lifetime here in Saigon!
