  • Description


    Hi, my name is Khai! I am originally from Chiang Mai province and I run a social hostel in the heart of Chiang Mai. The hostel was born to make people feel at home, not just running a business. We want all guests to feel comfortable and to enjoy their stay in this beautiful city. The hostel is managed by me with the help of 2 young burmese girls In and Im.

    Here’s a little bit about my hostel:
    The hostel is situated in Old Town, a short distance from the major Sunday Night Market, Silver Temple, and the beautiful a Nong Buak park. My hostel is quiet but social, with a laid back atmosphere. This is NOT a party hostel, although guests drink here and go out together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers can learn a lot from Thai culture and enjoy a family environment at the hostel.
    Meanwhile Chiang Mai is certainly known for its cultural highlights, the close proximity to plenty of natural spots and the laid back atmosphere during the day. After sunset, when countless bars and beer gardens open, live music venues pulling people from the street with their hot tunes and adult-only shows surprising with a great mix or music and comedy.

    The hostel is searching for someone with digital marketing experience such as content writing, SEO, Google AdWords, Facebook Ads, Instagram Promotion, etc. We recently launched a new website and want to increase reservations through this website. We also analyze competitors to understand the correct position of the hostel and how to attract more backpackers. Use of Wix would be a plus (to manage and update our website).

    I am open to new and fresh marketing ideas to increase my hostel's online presence and to receive new guests. We are NOT looking for cleaners, cooks, etc.

    Here is what is expected of you:
    1) Minimum of 3-5 hours working, 5 days a week. We can negotiate this so you can have days off and on to explore the city
    2) Agreed-upon outline of what you plan to work on and how many hours for each task BEFORE you come
    3) Time for daily check-in to monitor your progress on the project
    4) Possible training of new volunteers before you leave
    5) 2 weeks minimum

    If after a few days you do not follow the plan that we agreed upon, we will kindly ask you to leave.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The hostel is located inside the walls of Chiang Mai, the richest area of bars and restaurants. From here, guests can enjoy easy access to all that the lively city has to offer. There is easy access to the city’s myriad attractions and landmarks, such as Wat Phra Chao Mengrai Temple, Phajao Mengrai Temple and Thai Dessert.

    Also, I will help you enjoy your time in Chiang Mai: from watching an outstanding international Muay Thai match, to a local cooking lesson, and even washing elephants inside the jungle. The beautiful Mekong River runs through this lush wilderness and you have a multitude of choices for exploring the river and surrounding foothills including ziplining, renting ATV’s with a guide, and white water rafting.

    Please write the dates you wish to volunteer, your skill sets and experience. I would like to interview you before finalizing.
