  • Description


    Come and join a fun and friendly group of international volunteers help run a beautiful hostel in the heart of Istanbul!

    Open since 2004 we are small hostel with a big reputation, having won multiple awards for customer service and value for money. We really take pride in our hostel and are looking for volunteers who can work with the same care and attention to detail.

    We have between 4-6 volunteers here at a time.

    No experience working in hostels is required, but preferred, or you'd have to be willing to get to it =) We don't really need help at the reception so this is not a great place if you were hoping to improve / learn about it, unfortunately.

    We cannot receive couples, unfortunately.

    Ideally, the perfect candidate is an experienced traveller, used to hostels, between age 20-35, to best fit with our backpackers guests =)

    Currently, our shifts are mostly focused on cleaning, doing beds, laundry and all these little things.

    However, if everyone does a great job, 2h of cleaning per shift are plenty, it's mostly about keeping the environment pleasant for volunteers and guests!


    The hostel comprises 5 floors without any elevator. Which means you have to be able to go up and down, sometimes a few times per shifts.

    We have several shifts available, normally we rotate the times and do the following:

    Basic volunteering : (3 weeks+)
    -working hours are- 5 hours a day
    -interacting with the guests and helping to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere
    -basic cleaning of the hostel- sweeping, mopping floors, emptying bins, bathrooms
    -changing beds and laundry for guests after they have checked-out



    We exceptionally need odd jobs such as fixing / painting. These jobs are based on needs and you can then decide to stay only for the duration of the project.


    Management position. 6 months+

    For volunteers committed to staying long-term, there are possibilities to advance to a more "managerial" position.

    The job involves mostly taking care of all the volunteering aspects, making schedule, forming staff, taking care of some reception work. On top of the basic offer of bed and food, you would receive a salary based on the Turkish wage.

    This job is only available for long stay (6 months). In order to get the job, notify us in your application. We cannot promise the job in advance, it will be up to how well you fit in the hostel. Beginners are also welcome, Again, we will see during your time with us if the job is a good match for you.

    Available from September onwards.
