I had the chance to stay for 2 week with Rozina and her family and the experience in Chitwan was wonderful. I felt all the time part of the family! Spent all my time in the Kindergarten helping wonderful kids, teaching, helping with homeworks, painting, smiling, cleaning, cooking, and doing simple tasks. The vibe of the kids is so great! Rozina also offer farming projects and the orphanage that her parents lead. I visited the Chitwan National Park stayed in a private room, did laundry, ate local food and had an amazing time with the whole family and another volunteer from Italy. Namaste!

My Hostels Weligama was an amazing experience and Yakoob gave me the chance to volunteer for 2 weeks. The facilities of the hostel are amazing: Modern, clean, really nice rooms with bathroom. Amazing common and dinning areas area. Good WIFI. The food was delicious, the beach was really close and everything in the town was about 15 to 20 minutes walk. The tasks were perfect and he gave me freedom to make photos and videos for his hostel. The team was so kind and always open to help. I will definitely recommend My Hostels to volunteer and also to stay Sri Lanka. :) Bohoma Stutiyi.

Bunk Stay was unbelievable! The city of Rishikesh and the hostel itself offered something I haven’t seen and feet in India. It was more than I could expect. Nakul, was such great host and all his friends and team were always available to help me or teach me with everything. I enjoyed a lot taking photographs and doing promotional videos for the hostel. After two weeks, I will never forget the people, the food, the view of the city and every adventure we had with Bunk Stay. ¡Namaste!
