Hello I'm Local

(I have availability again from the 1st of November) My hostel is a great place to experience local life, culture and history. All my rooms are themed and provide background information on typical Dutch places, things and people. We are all open to do language exchange, we teach you Dutch or help improve your English.

I have a team of 10 locals which are all enthusiastic about where they are from (Haarlem!). We are like a family and we welcome you to join us. You will meet people here from all over the world. We don't have TV's so we encourage our guests to interact. You are welcome to join social activities, like the Local Bikeride, Pubcrawl or Beertasting

I spent a month in Hello I’m Local which I now consider my second home. I really enjoyed my time volunteering there even though we hard a lot of hard work due to renovations, we always had fun. The working hours are respected and everything else mentioned in the description as well. Thanks to all the staff and helpers group for building such an amazing experience for everyone.

Tim is amazing! I love his outlook and he is very caring and always there to help.

The volunteers are amazing I truly feel like I’m leaving my family behind as I leave Haarlem.

The staff is nice, they’re all Haarlem locals and they’re very helpful with anything you need.

The tasks we’re not very clear. Some staff members ask you to do more than others but in general it’s a very light work load.

Overall I had a very good time. The town is very calm and beautiful and very close to Amsterdam if you want to visit on your off days.

Kudos to Tim! He is doing an AMAZING job as a host :)

It was a wonderful and lovely experience, everyone is very friendly and cheerful, they make you feel very comfortable and happy. Communication with the team was always good, they were willing to help you with whatever you need. Working hours and days off are respected which is great since you can go out and see the surroundings. I made very good friends there it was difficult to say goodbye. Thank you very much everyone ♡
