We are located in Tainan, a historic city of Taiwan. We offer backpackers a clean, cozy rooms with cheap, affordable price, it's a busy hostel so We are looking for a few volunteer helpers to stay with us short-term (at least stay for 14 days) in exchange for food (we offer lunch) and accommodation (a bed in the shared dorm)! Oh, we also offer free yoga classes for helpers in our yoga studio!
Mainly helpers will be making the beds and cleaning the environment. The working time is 3~5 hours a day and you can spend the rest of your time exploring the city. There are many fun activities happening in the hostel, also the whole city is very worthy to explore! The requirements for the helpers is to have good communicative skill (English, Mandarin, Spanish, Klingon... as long as it works!) and detail oriented attitude (clean freak welcome!). Also, if you have some special skills you could mention it on the request letter, we are more than welcome to meet you in Wow Tainan International Hostel! Feel free to contact us in any time!
I spent 2 weeks at Wow Tainan hostel. This was my first work exhhange experience and it could not have been better. The owner and the staff are great! The work included making the beds, laundry, cleaning the toilets/shower rooms. I worked at most 3 hours a day. some days there was very less work. Lunch provided everyday was delicious! we even had a potluck dinner on my last day there. The dorm room for the volunteers was great too. I also got to attend the yoga sessions at the studio, free! Highly recommend volunteering with Wow Tainan hostel. :)

Most duties are the usual cleaning/house chores, you are supposed to start at 11:00 and end up by 15:00, but don't worry they are not that sharp with the starting hour and you'll finish way before 15:00 most days (when I was by myself I ended at 15:00, but with other helpers you'll finish in no time!), weekends seem to be more active while weekdays are wuite calm.
Free breakfast and lunch, free bikes, free yoga. And more importantly, nice people, ready to help you or just share some laughs.
Want to visit Taiwan? (And you totally should) Start from there!

WOW TAINAN International Hostel was my first worldpacker experiencie, and it was amazing!! I need to tell everyone that who reads this review that i lived one of the best experiences of my life there, i met many beautiful people that i will never forget and i hope to see again soon.
The activities are simple like doing beds and maintain the floors and bathroom's clean. The schedule is perfect because you have a lot of time to do other activities and get to know the city. Also the hostel provide breakfast and lunch which is great.
Thank you 4 everything WOW TAINAN INTERNATIONAL HOSTEL!
