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
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.
