My volunteer experience at Telstar Hostel was spectacular! I am grateful that I was surrounded by very supportive, caring crew here at the hostel. When I arrived in Brazil, all I knew in Portuguese was "obrigado". After two months, my Portuguese improved immensely with the help of people I met at the hostel.

Being at the Felicidade Hostel has definitely helped me explore France and allowed me to be immersed in the French culture. I've already learned so much in the short time that I've been here.

Worldpackers introduced us to a new world and helped us connect with volunteers from around the world. It’s really easy to use and allows us to manage all of our volunteer needs throughout the year, which is very important in our sector.

Volunteers are an invaluable part of our hostel. They come up with new ideas, different perspectives and freshen up our routines. We teach each other and learn together, so at the end of the day, we improve and are able to provide a better service for our guests.

This is awesome! It has been a fantastic, really enriching experience thus. It’s a great feeling knowing those that are helping out really want to be at your hostel. I am definitely going to continue with Worldpackers.

Because every story is worth telling.
