- About COVID-19
- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend you to stay informed about WHO's and local authorities' recommendations.
We have a few volunteers staying at the hostel to socialise with the backpackers and help them make the most of their holiday and get the goods reviews that our hostel relies on! We also require help in reception and cleaning. Equally important is being able to control the noise levels at night to avoid complaints from our neighbours.Learn more
