The Experience

Visiting a hostel is always fun, but we have a responsibly to take care of other travelers from across the globe. For this we need fast learning Worldpackers who can work in the bar and general front of house operations. Socializing with guest is a big requirement in our hostel so, if you can keep a good conversation around the fire, then this position is for you. Care, consistency and courtesy is key to this position.

Amazing experience opportunity for interaction with people around the world.
I saw the most amazing sunsets of my life from the living room window and deck.
Attentive hosts and the town of Plett has a great location for getting to know the most famous attractions on the garden route. by the scale of work you do not get bored doing a single task and still learn something new.
Thanks everyone!

My first experience as a Worldpacker was incredible . I had the opportunity to met amazing people that made my journey at African Array better than I expected , we became friends that helped each other , a volunteer family , so nice how different kind of personalities lived fine together haha with respect. In general I just have good things to say about this place . Peaceful view everyday , doesn't matter the weather . The owners also nice people looking after the volunteers providing opportunities inside and outside of the Hostel . Thank you all for everything . Cheers!
