Our place is newly refurbished and we aim to maintain the property in its current condition while improving as time goes on. There's a real sense of scale in this location, as the property is 21 rooms over 4 floors, however does not feel overwhelming and is still cozy. The property overlooks Newsham Parks with its green spaces and lakes while also being easy access to the town centre and the football stadiums. Liverpool is ideally located for extracurricular activities both inside and out the city with its various nature reserves and proximity to the beach.
As an equal partner! This is a family run establishment along with multiple others around the country. We always have a high retention rate of staff and loyal guests who come back time after time due to the high standards we keep, the deep understanding of our staff and guests' needs and our passion for the industry. Volunteers will have flexibility in their tasks and we can adapt to their needs ensuring everyone remains content and is supported throughout.
This was my first Worldpackers experience. I had a lot of responsibilities but probably because I was the only volunteer on ground. I gained a lot of experience and will definitely come around whenever I’m in Liverpool.
Vedran, the host, is a nice and smart guy and you will learn a lot from him if you’re interested.

The host cares about the business but he isnt around so he's always calling or texting giving tasks urgents right on time, he expects you to do everything and anything he wants at the time he wants it, doesnt respect time and shift. His parents go there sometimes to help but I didnt like at all the way I was treated by his mom, saying in a rude and sexist way I was the only girl there and I was supposed to check the guys work in the kitchen and laundry "because thats what girls do" so clearly the worload wasnt fair, I felt that I was more like a supervisor, more pressure. I dont recommend.

Great experience! Vedran is a really good host. There were other volunteers and we formed a nice team.
It was my first experience volunteering and I can't complaint, Vendran (and his parents) taught me a lot. Although there was a lot of work to do, I could also enjoy the city. It was also a great to meet people from different cultures (most guests are coming from abroad to study).
I would definitely recommend Newsham and Liverpool ☺️

It was me and my wife's first experience thru the platform, as well as it was the hosts first experience having volunteers over.
So it was a great opportunity to lear together.
Since day one Vedran and his family were very receptive and welcoming.
We had the opportunity to learn new skills and expand our abilities.
We are very greatful for the opportunity !
