WOW TAINAN International Hostel

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!

This is the 1st time I work in exchange living in a hostel. It's also the start of my journey. I enjoy food and meet some local persons. Although this is in my country I could still meet some travelers there. Everybody talk about hobbies, language learning and travel experience. It's wonderful. I really appreciate the the host gave me the opportunity. Thank you all.

My stay at Wow Tainan Hostel was an amazing experience. I learned a lot about housekeeping, without feeling that I was even working. The tasks were easy. Everyone is friendly. The hostel is filled with artworks. I also enjoyed the yoga class. I will surely go back.

My experience was the greatest I could imagine during my stay.
The Hostel is awesome, really nice enviromental, really close to the main train station.There area bikes to rent to go for a ride in all over the pretty city of Tainan. Good food and shops just with a few minutes walk.
The staff and hosts were just amazing. They made me feel at home, were always helping me with the work and were flexible so that I could take days off to travel. They showed me how is the local life and where were the best spots to go.
A special thank to Chen and Wei for having me.
I wiil come back!
