We started our journey about two years ago, after we found this beautiful old Portuguese house with its lovely huge garden in the heart of Anjuna. Being enthusiastic travelers ourselves, we wanted to create a welcoming, unique and homely space for travelers who cross our paths. Since then we have hosted lots of travelers, artists, musicians ... who added bits and pieces of their passion, interests and stories to our place, spreading words, colours and notes all around and turned our vision into a living dream.
Inspired and grateful for all the creative, mindblowing and artisic help, efforts and footprints a lot of beautiful souls left behind, we are jumping into a new project: a Hostelbar, offering great jam+movie sessions and lovely drinks from travelers for travelers. We're already organising some events and Bar nights, and it's still a process of figuring out the optimal way of running and organising it.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house

You will have a gala time here learning the Indian culture and its variations. At any point of time, you will meet some really crazy life-loving people who will share their own experiences and perspectives of life. Travelers also get the chance to be a part of hostel building process. Moreover, its an opportunity to explore more about Goa. The intense combination of these two experiences will leave you enlightened.
As a part of our Hostel Staff, the priority task would be to make our guests feel comfortable and help them in creating their unique travel experience. Sharing your smiles and stories, helping out with general hostel/reception tasks or a hand for housekeeping and gardening if required, taking the guest for a day- or nighttrip, helping us in organising events.. and simply with being the way you are, adding your own interests, ideas and passion to the place.
In case you are a musician... perfect :):) we are looking forward to some support for jam sessions!!!!
Referring to earlier experiences.. we would appreciate if you take your tasks serious and keep yourself in a "workable" state during your working hours!! <3
Little Note: We are trying our best in replying to all your requests.. sometimes it's getting tough, so a big apologize in advance if it happens late or not at all.. to help us, please just message us when you want to stay for minimum 3 weeks!!
Also... in the last months, we had a lot of requests and confirmed volunteers who changed their plans, without telling or cancelled their request one day in advance... PLEASE! Consider.. that we keep your space free, if you confirm we end up rejecting others who are interested.. and it's more then fair for us and other volunteers to feel responsible about your offer, request and words! You are not the only traveller out there who wants to have workaway experiences.. plans change, things happen... that's for sure! But if you have the chance to tell us in advance that we can open our gates and space for others.. then please do!! Light, Love and happy travels to all of you :)
