Josie was a great addition to the Asia Blue team. She was sweet, welcoming, clean and tidy. She worked at the restaurant. She caught on really quickly, understood the system and performed really well. Thank you Josie for staying with us! Hope to see you again!

A beautiful hostel on the beach with a good crew of staff and nice perks like a gym and two meals. Some things to be aware of going into it (this was our experience)...You only get meals on days you work- which is fine as long as you know beforehand. You won’t necessarily work in the area you apply for. Our dorm had beds pretty much as hard as the ground but otherwise was fine and others were in a nice dorm. :) It is not super organized, but is overall very chill and easy to work out everything. We would stay again! miss you guys
