  • Description

    Description

    We had successfully set up and run a top rated backpacker hostel in Bangalore for the last five years and are now looking to expand in Kerala. Our new project is located approximately 15KM from Munnar, in the South Indian state of Kerala. The hostel is located amidst hills, lakes and whole lot of greenery and the closest town is 2KM away. We are looking for volunteers who can help in kickstarting this new property.

    We plan to be up and running from 10 Oct 2019 so we will require volunteers to handle guest relations and help drive footfalls as this is a new property. If you are somebody who's looking for some peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of cities, do consider joining us.
