I had the most fun 3 weeks at Lazy House Shenanigans, I wish I could stay longer! I am so glad I did it! Met amazing people during my time there; the owner, staffs and guests are beyond friendly and easy going. I was helping out at the pool bar and learned how to mix drinks which is really cool. Super fun atmosphere to work in, the team is so great! And Koh Phangan itself is a gem. I wish I can come back soon. Apply right away, you'll be happy you did it!!
I don't recommend volunteering at the reception. I had to pretend to be a guest and sit all day on a sofa in a hot room with mosquitoes, stay behind my computer and still keep an eye on guests needs. The real issue was the receptionist and manager being rude to me, in her own words, she had to tell me something twice (is that a reason to be rude to anyone?). The rules changed from the day I arrived and I was not officially told which caused discomfort. Accommodation had no AC (good luck trying to sleep). When I said I wanted to quit, I was given one hour to pack and leave. Bad experience.
Thanks for the feedback regarding the dorm. All volunteers are now in an air con dorm. No one was rude to you I asked you to help out and to do the work you volunteered for. You weren't given an hour to leave, you were here until late afternoon and walked out of your 6 hour shift before midday. No rules were changed while you were here, you did seem to be in your own world half the time or on your laptop which isn't suited to this role. All the volunteers that were here when you arrived are still here and some have stayed on. Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay here :( but either way I wish you all the best.
Volunteering at Lazy House SHENANIGANS has been the greatest experience of my life. I had to work at the Pool Bar, which is a great place to get to know people from all around the world.
The staff is lovely, the place is really cool, and believe me, you´ll never have so much fun as you´ll here!
