Looking for travelers to join our Hostel and Restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHave you ever considered volunteering in Asia and discovering a whole new culture? Then Taiwan should be your next adventure!
    We have a great opportunity for you in Taipei, which is the biggest and most convenient city of the island.

    Our hostel and restaurant are located 5-min walking to MRT Taipei Main Station, the heart of the city and the best area to reach everywhere in Taiwan. The district is also known for its good bars, restaurants and things to do in the neighborhood.

    We also have another hostel which was ranked number 1 in Taipei in 2016 and we are having no less expectation with this brand new one. We have a great community and friendly staff and we own a cool bar and restaurant connected to the hostel. The interior is super modern, clean and comfortable.

    With more than 5 years of experience, we like to think we know a bit about hosteling. Armed with this knowledge, our goals in Meander1948 are to offer affordable accommodation, quality and an unforgettable experience to our guests (and to you as our volunteer).

    We are looking for fun and friendly volunteers who are committed, self-motivated and energetic. So if you are interested in emerging yourself in the culture that Taiwan has to offer, love meeting new people around the world and sharing your travel experiences, welcome to join us at Meander1948! :)
