We run a hostel in a small mountain village in the Swiss Alps. Myself (Merin) and my wife (Gemma) have been here in Gryon, Switzerland for more than 5 years, managing and growing our backpackers hostel. We first arrived for a six month climbing trip and couldn't leave.

Our hostel is in an authentic Swiss Chalet and has both private and dormitory rooms along with many common areas to accommodate our guests. Many people stay here because of our close proximity to all of the mountain activities. During the winter months there is skiing/snowboarding at a nearby resort and during the summer there is hiking, climbing and mountain biking. We love and participate in nearly all of the activities the Swiss Alps have to offer.

Our hostel is a pretty relaxed backpackers hostel. Our guests are usually a mix outdoor enthusiasts, individuals traveling Europe, small groups and families. It is a pretty chill place. We are not a party hostel and the mountains are more of a draw to our guests th... more inside

Hello helpers!

My name is Joceline (57), I live in a nice house with a big garden just 10 minutes walk from the village Bex, in the swiss region of Vaud. I have four children, two of which are already living by their own, and two (22 and 25 years old) who are still living with me, but they come and go. I also have a cat. We speak French, English, German and Spanish. I love travelling, being outdoors enjoying nature and practicing sports.

Recently we had our first helpex travellers in our home, and I found it to be a really nice experience. That's why I'm looking for open people that can help me with the garden, and some general help when needed. Skills like carpentry will be much apreciated! In exchange for this work I would be happy to show you around the region, and give you tips on how to get the most of your swiss experience.

I am Daniel, swiss, 48, always on the move between the german and the italian speaking parts of switzerland. This is my house, in Ticino - the italian speaking part, located in an old quarter of the city of Bellinzona. The area features quite mediterranean climate and beautiful mountains. The lake (Lago Maggiore), Locarno (festivals), Lugano and the italian border are all just ca. 30-45min away. Ticino is popular with visitors and travellers: www.ticino.ch/en/
As the house is somewhat large (seven rooms) and ancient (before 1850) there is always some work to be done.
Current projects (2018):
- reorganization of the electrical installations (wiring, add plugs, lights etc.) -> electricians very welcome!
- building a shelter for bikes
- several little things around.
I offer free accomodation (several bedrooms to choose from, bicycles for use) in this beautiful corner of the world. You offer to help with some practical work, not more than 2-4 hours per day, for a limited time (we ... more inside

We bought two country houses in the Swiss Alps three years ago. The place has been used for buddhist meditation for the past 13 years. We are now in the process of renovating the place. This involves wood construction, carpentry, earthwork, plumbery and electric installations. We already installed a 4 KW Photovoltaik System this year and are in the process of setting up our own sewage treatment plant. We continue the work periodically like 7 to 10 days within one to two months. We could need 2-3 people with above mentioned skills or generally handy people. Our next work period will be 3rd to 14th + May. Hope to see you.
