My hostel is a family-run hostel located in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Life is crazy busy here with events & activities going on daily. Usually I need help with events management, social media promotion, google ads/SEO optimization skills would be an asset as well as website development. Sometimes volunteers help with organizing tours as well on bike tours or popular day trips. If you are good in photography/video editing I would love to work with you as well. All that said if you do not posses any particular skills listed above but a people person, like interacting with new people and making the hostel atmosphere friendly where everyone feels welcome I would be glad to have you as well.
We operate as a Tourist Info Center; as a founder and manager I travel extensively across Central Asia, and hiking/horseriding trips within Kyrgyzstan - so I am more than happy to share with the information on traveling in this part of the world.
The hostel is located on the western side of the west bus station from where you can catch a bus to any part of the country as well to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tadjikistan, and China; just 10 mins walk from the biggest food market in Bishkek - Osh bazaar - and 4 km away from the city center - make its location perfect.
Help with Computers/ Internet
As a volunteer you could learn local culture; meet other travellers from all over the world; learn russian. Go hiking/biking/join our tours etc...there are tons of activities to choose from.
For bloggers/photographers/videographers/website developers/art workers
I would be happy to provide 3-4 days free of charge stay in exchange for your services. We are a two-floor building with a big outside yard, so there is plenty of work for creativity. I love taking funny videos like mannequin challenges, or organizing some kind of flash mobs. I have several websites which I would help with updating as well. For the outside terrace I'm open to any suggestions on how to make the area better. If you have any proposals please email me.
