The location is great and the family running this hostel is nice and always ready to help you. I had spent quality of time with them and others volunteers, not only when I was working, also during my free time. The work is entertaining, a good thing is that you always have the same shift hours and free days, but also they are flexible. I stayed longer than expected cause is not easy to leave this lovely place.


Czech Republic

Volunteering at a hostel was long on my list, and I couldn’t choose a better place. The work is fairly easy once you get the hang of it and I found it very enjoyable and rewarding, especially interacting with guests and helping them to make the most of their stay.
The best thing about the experience is the family running the hostel. Michelle, Raine, Khung, Sang – they are all so warm and make this place feel like home.
If you want to work on your English, learn about the hospitality industry or Vietnam as a country, this is the place to do it!



Everything is really great! Don't miss a chance to helping them there. It'll be your great experience ever!



Minexperience in Tam Hostek was amazing, Michelle, the owner, is a very warm person, and makes you feel at home.
This whole family, and I have never felt alone, I have learned many things about Vietnamese culture. Working here is very pleasant, the guests are all calm, and accompany the Hostel's climate. I am very happy to have done my volunteering here.
Michelle is amazing person !
