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!

I had a great experience in Ringo's Foyer. I worked there for three weeks and that was enough to fall in love with the city and specially with the guesthouse. The ambience in the hostel is amazing, you can spend the day without going out and you'll never get bored.
The working hours are easy and Howard is a great host, you really feel like home.
I will definitely recommend this hostel as a traveller and also as a working exchange.

I spend three weeks working in the hostel and I really had fun there. Howard is a nice guy, always asking if everything is OK and taking care of you. The city has many food places to try and the hostel is very comfortable. If you want to relax, meet people and have fun the rooftop of the hostel is the right place to do it. I will definitely come back.

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.
