Life at the hostel is incredible! Yann (the manager) is always friendly and helpful, and you will meet new persons every day. The staff is really like a big family. Everybody is hilarious and always ready to help. With them, I had great adventures that I’ll never forget!:)
The tasks are varied and the shifts are quite short, so you’re going to learn a lot and have plenty of time to explore Stirling and nearby (Glasgow, Edimburg, Dundee etc).
If you want to have one of the best and funniest holiday ever or just have an insight on how a hostel works, Willy Wallace is the right place to go!
Magic place! So far the best work exchange experience that I have had. I don't want to leave! The tasks are simple and the manager is really friendly and flexible. If you like relaxing in the mountains and go for a beer in a traditional Scotish pub at the end of the day, this is the place. I'm going to miss so much this place that gave so many special moments with amazing people. Pure love!
Stirling is a small but beautiful town. Its charm relies on the fact that is not very turistic, like Glasgow or Edinburgh,but you always have something to do. Night life is cool, you have a few pubs and night clubs.The Willy Wallace is amazing.It's located right in the city center, a few minutes away from the castle. The hostel is very, very cozy and the only flaw I find is that we are in front of a night club, so weekends are a bit noisy. Your tasks are not difficult at all. Staff is just the best and they will be there to help you.
Yann is such a character!He is really chilled and patient
This was my first experience as a Worldpacker and it couldn't have been better! Hours and tasks are fair, never too heavy, the hostel is clean, and the staff is lovely, I already miss all of them! Stirling is a little city but it's pretty and lively; it's the perfect location if you want to travel a bit around Scotland.
