Hi i'm Chathura (If that is hard to pronounce you can call me Chatz). We run a hostel in the misty hills of Kandy. When I said up in the hills that's actually as it is. We are probably the highest elevated hostel in the city, yet only 2.4 km from the main Kandy city and other key attractions. We been open for just over 2 years now. It was a really fun place and the we had the tragic easter attacks and the year after the pandemic hit.There is loads more we would want to do but very few hands around. Always on the look out for more kind helping hands.
Other than running the hostel I lecture undergraduate students in Computing, Business Management and Hospitality. Have travelled around the world a bit (I really wish it could be more soon) and love meeting new people each and every day from various parts of the globe.
We strive to make our volunteers feel at home away from home. Rarely would we say no and rarely would you need to ask once we agree and commence on our assignments. Hoping to hear from you and working together in the near future.

We love sharing all our local insights of Kandy as well as the rest of Sri Lanka. If you would like to cook Sri Lankan food we can offer you free classes. Since we are located within a village you would be able to see more local culture and customs and the actual live of a villager not too far from the city.
Very Urgent :
Creative photography of the hostel
Whilst we mostly are on the look out for artistic and creative folks, we would also like to have a couple of volunteers who could help us with general hostel tasks such as front office, housekeeping and general cleaning.
We are also looking for Volunteers who would be interested to help build a HO scale Model Rail Way. We have all the stuff just need some creative people to put it all together.
There is always something that someone could do.
We would love to have volunteers who can help us with general maintenance, cleaning , painting, murals, gardening and carpenters who can help us build unique furniture. If you skills are not listed still please do get in touch I am sure there will always be something we could do together.
Listed below is a list of projects we have in mind:
1) Murals : Need lots more, artist please reach out
2) Creative Furniture
3) HO Scale Model Railway Layout
4) Social Media assistance
5) Creation of a meditation / yoga room
7) Completion of our hangout bar
11) Promotion of our hostel in your country's social media
12) Creative photography of the hostel
13) Creatives (Photoshop or other) for social media
14) Video reviews of the hostel and attractions around us
15) Build some garden tables and benches
16) Happy to hear other ideas that would add value to the hostel
Your accommodation would be within a 8 bed mixed dormitory with all bedding and linen included. It has three shared bathrooms and is located on the first floor of the hostel. However if you are staying for a long time with us and if the hostel occupancy is low we at times upgrade you to deluxe double rooms. So that you would occasionally enjoy some personal space and added comfort.
