  • Description


    My hostel is a family-run hostel located in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Here we try to create a homie atmosphere by engaging guests in different activities, provide them with travel tips, and so on.

    Bishkek is an amazing city with a lot to offer: anything from historic sites to nature and parties. Every day there are tons of activities going on in the city. Also if you ever wanted to learn Russian this is the place to be.

    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. Since we have recently been renovated we need help with taking pictures of the new sites/making a video about the hostel/directions. Also help with updating the websites. For the outside terrace I'm open to any suggestions on how to make the area better. If you have any proposal please email me .

    For Volunteers: (2 weeks to one month)

    Since currently, I am the only one who creates events and does marketing in general, I need help to transfer some of the load. I need a cheerful, positive and a responsible/creative person to help me out with social media/website development/customer service/events management/and just help with generating ideas on how to help the hostel develop and grow.
    There is also possibility for working at the reception during the day.
    As a traveller myself I provide travel tips on travelling both in Kyrgyzstan and in neighboring Kazakhstan/Tajikistan.

    By next year we are hoping to expand to be able to host more people. Since it is a family business I would also like the volunteer to help my parents learn some English. Right now it is only me and the reception guys who connect with travellers.
