    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    What we aim to achieve is a learning hub and skills exchange. A place where people from all over the world can come together, get creative and everybody can take away a new skill.

    Whether its learning simple construction methods, joinery or even the beginnings of a new language we believe that there are many different skills that can be exchanged in a short amount of time at our new hostel.

    It is for you to provide your own meals during you time here, our hostel manager does run his own evening meal events where he allows all volunteers to buy in at the cost price of ingredients.

    We are a new startup hostel in a fun and interesting city. As we embark on this new adventure we will all be learning together, creating and getting the hostel into a fully fledged and working fashion.

    As the project is brand new we will be calling on workawayers to help us learn, develop and progress in the new venture. We want to create a friendly family atmosphere and fun needs to be at the priority of everything.

    Workawayers are likely to expect check-in procedures, general cleaning duties and entertaining of guests in the evenings.

    We dont provide meals for volunteers but do have a kitchen and cooking facilities on site for all guests and volunteers to use.

    -Please include the dates you are planning on travelling.
    -Due to the vast number of applicants we are only able to consider stays for 2 month.
