The Experience

The job is easy and very flexible. Depending on your shift (7am to 11am, 11am to 15pm and 15pm to 19pm) you will be in charge of arranging breakfast, check ins, check outs or just helping guests to feel at home. Melaka is a relatively small city and our guesthouse is the friendliest :) You will have loads of free time to relax or walk around the city! You get a single or a double room (it you are a couple) so you have your own space!

Ahhhh where can I start?
Howard and Jaqueline are amazing people, they are always smiling and willing to help all the time. This was my first volunteering and I am glad I chose this one. This has been lovely, you get to meet new people everyday and you learn new things all the time, how to manage check ins and outs, how to serve breakfast, etc.
The place is big and amazing, cheap and free breakfast included, amazing for backpackers! I can't wait to come back in the future. The vibe here is amazing.
I will miss them a lot.

I had an amazing time with Howard, Jacqueline and all the other volunteers in RIngo's Foyer.
Howard and Jacqueline are both very caring, helpful and easy going, it was a pleasure and fun to work with them. The volunteers at that time we a great crew and supported each other.
The Guesthouse is immediately loved by anyone who stepped in (incl me) . The working hours gave me a lot of time to explore Malacca and the Guesthouse is very central, 4 min to the famous Night Market and 3 min to the river.
I highly recommend RIngo's Foyer to stay and/or volunteer!!! Thank you Howard and Jacqueline <3
