Review written by the host
Monise is an all around ROCK STAR! She is everything a manager, co-worker, and friend would want in a Worldpacker volunteer. A legend when it came to all tasks from housekeeping to reception. She does it all with a positive attitude and willingness to go above and beyond as a team player to achieve any goal. I would recommend her to any host.
I stayed almost 2 months at the hostel, there was many volunteers so the workload was fair and well distributed. The atmosphere is nice and the team is always hanging out together. The hostel is well connected by bus and trains (zone 2, which won't cost a lot to go to the city center).
The down points is that the hostel is over a pub that has very loud live music every day until late night (ear plugs available) and the wifi provided is terrible, working properly only in the common area in off peak hours. Hope the new management will take care of it soon ;)
Thanks a lot for having me, guys!

Currently 'backpacking' around Europe with a heavy suitcase, running away from my comfort zone.
Life goal: step in every country of this beautiful world, help and encourage other people to do the same.
