How lucky I am to have my first Worldpackers experience in Kimchee guesthouse! Instead of one month I ended up staying two. The owner is just amazing, he always tries to make everyone feel comfortable, and he is very flexible with our working hours. The location is perfect, next to the subway station in the heart of Busan. Work never really felt like work, it was so easy, and I always had plenty of free time to explore. I have so many nice memories about Kimchee, I’ll always remember our team events and all the other volunteers that I’ve had the chance to meet!

Guesthouse Kimchee ha sido mi hogar lejos de casa.
Agradezco mucho la oportunidad brindada todo este tiempo. Gracias por la paciencia que han tenido conmigo, regresaré a casa recordándolos siempre.
Las actividades ha realizar se han cumplido como se indica en el perfil, además del voluntariado consigues mantener grandes lazos de amistad con personas de distintas nacionalidades incluyendo la coreana.
Gracias por todo! y espero poder volvernos a ver pronto!

Kimchee Guesthouse was a great place to volunteer at. The atmosphere between everyone was really nice. The tasks aren't difficult at all and you have lots of free time to explore the city. The hostel is pretty central and next to a subway station. The manager is a very fun and friendly person and was flexibel with our days off. All in all a great experience, thank you Kimchee Guesthouse and team😃

It was my first experience as a worldpacker and I am very satisfied. The people were wonderful. The work was not at all tiring and the place was very close to the metro. I miss it already! 😂

My experience in kimchee was amazing. The work is pretty easy, the manager is a very nice man. I share the room with other females volunteers and it was so nice, all supported each other as a sisterhood.
