Activities & Shift

We take on volunteers for all aspects of running the hostels, bars, pub crawls and more. We are very easygoing and flexible, so we are interested in everything each volunteer can bring to the table. This listing is looking for builders, but if you can also handle check-ins, or pub crawling, or updating social media or anything, we'd love to make use of your diversity!


Rules

OK, THE HARSH RULES:
1) If you can't commit to dates 100%, don't apply. We're flexible, but if you say you'll be here 1-31JAN, we'll expect you here.

2) If you need to leave early, we require 5 days notice. Failure to give notice WILL result in automatic negative feedback. NO EXCEPTIONS.

3) You are REQUIRED to be active in our group chat - it's how we communication. If you aren't reading & responding, you will be asked to leave.

4) It's 100% forbidden to feed, house, pet or encourage stray animals. It's severely damaging to the animals & to our business. Anyone caught doing this will be asked to leave immediately.

5) Full Moon Party is REALLLLY fun, but a LOT of work. We guarantee you will get to enjoy Jungle Party & Full Moon Party, but you will also be REQUIRED to work long hours for those 3 or 4 days. The rest of the time we try hard to keep shorter hours for everyone.
