Siam Journey

*** Please read our entire listing and note that we require a minimum of two weeks from our volunteers*** *****We only accept solo travelers! No couples or people traveling together***** Sawatdee Ka! We are a small guesthouse situated in the heart of Bangkok. Our unique location (in a real Thai neighborhood) is what makes us different from other guesthouses. We have 38 beds: two 12-bed dorm, two 3 beds private room and a family room dorm. Because of our small size, we are able to give much more personal attention to our guests. We prefer to take the guests out for meals, drinks, markets, and clubs ourselves. The guesthouse is run by a group of open-minded friends who have traveled around extensively. We are seeking like-minded people to join in on our journey. Please only apply if your stay here is going to be in the next month or two as we cannot book people in any further in advance. And please note we don't accept couples or friends traveling together, we prefer lone travelers. If this sounds good for you then what are you waiting for? Come and be part of one of the best guesthouses in BKK!

Here is some info on the job: We ask volunteers to work 3 morning shifts (8 am- 14 pm) and 3 afternoon shifts (16 pm – 22 am) per week (depends on how many volunteers we have). The 1st shift involves basic tidying up, emptying some bins, check in’s and helping guests. The 2nd shift is similar but occasionally you might have to wait for a late guest arrival. The other part of being a volunteer here is about making the guests feel at home, even when you are not on shift. We go out together a lot so we want volunteers to join in with this, and you will be expected to lead guests out for a drink or ask them to join you when you go out to eat or explore. A lot of our guests want to go out for drinks in the evenings, so for this reason we prefer sociable volunteers and who also enjoy this kind of thing. We really rely on volunteers to get the guests interested and having a good time. Please don't accept the position if you won’t be getting the guests together to do something with you. We are not interested in volunteers who just want to do their shift then hide away in their dorm and not get involved, just as we are not interested in volunteers who just wanna party and then be too hungover to work their shift. Our volunteers love it here. Most come back again and again and the work is very simple. It is very laid back here and you can spend your shifts hanging out, watching films, drinking with guests or pretty much however you want. We work as a team and we enjoy doing it. Everyone is treated equally. So if you wanna have a nice place to stay and want to explore Bangkok with other people, have fun with our guests and feel the vibe home away from home then we're very sure you'll love it here. If you have any other concerns or inquiries regarding this volunteering position, don't hesitate to reach us out here or on our facebook page at Siam Journey Guesthouse. Unfortunately, we don’t provide food, only accommodation, but the food is really cheap around here.

Uma das minhas melhores experiências em voluntariado! A guest house tem um clima ótimo para trabalhar e se divertir. São poucas tarefas e tem flexibilidade no turno de trabalho, o que faz sobrar bastante tempo para conhecer Bangkok e também outras cidades próximas.
Daniel e Anita são excelentes anfitriões e fizeram eu me sentir muito a vontade, como se fosse minha casa. Com certeza é um lugar que gostaria de voltar!

Estuvo bien! Si bien tenía que cumplir con un horario bastante extenso el trabajo en si era muy relajado. Estaría bueno que también las comidas estén incluidas. Anita y Daniel fueron muy amables siempre. Hay muchos locales para comer en la calle cerca del hostel. Fue una linda experiencia!!

I would definitely recommend spending some time at Siam Journey ! The hostel is quite small but cosy, located in a authentic Thai neighbourhood. The workload depends on the number of volunteers but you will have plenty of free time to explore the city. The managers Anita and Daniel are very nice and helpful.

My first volunteer was with them and it was very good, excellent, the guest house is always clean, the guests were always very friendly, Anita and Daniel are good people. I would always recommend it. It is well located and its family atmosphere makes it even more special. Thanks for everything, I would definitely return.
