  • Description


    We are a small hostel located in Mae Haad area, Koh Tao. We take the guests out for meals, drinks, markets and bars ourselves. The hostel is small so we are able to give much more personal attention to our guests. We are run by two easy-going Swiss - Thai who have traveled around extensively. We are seeking like-minded, open-minded, friendly people to join in on our journey.

    Volunteers help mostly in the afternoon/evening (flexible really); they help with check-ins, socialise with guests / hanging out with guests, helping with directions and things to do on the island. Help us create the great family vibes.

    The work load is very minimal, giving our volunteers plenty of time to explore the Island, chill on the beach and out party. Volunteers are given free accommodation (a bed in the 8 bed dorm). We require only long term volunteers (minimum 3 weeks).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a lot of guests from all around the world, so volunteers could meet a lot of new people and learn their different culture every day. Moreover, helping local Thai and Burmese staff, volunteer could then understand the way of life of our beautiful and respectful culture.
    Apart from helping time, volunteers could travel around the island, learn diving, etc.
    We will no doubt end up regularly taking you to some of our favourite spots, and we really encourage you to explore and get to know this incredible place as much as you can.
