The hostel was good and in the center of the city.
My whole stay was really okay as the task to man the reception was easy enough, the other staff nice and Singapore amazing.
I have to say something about the host though. I have never once met Mike during 2 weeks of stay. Everyday the staff had to ask him again when they would have to work and the answer sometimes came after 10pm. When mistakes were made which can happen as a beginner, you were being shouted at through the phone. I was constantly afraid of doing something wrong and being thrown out. It was not a comfortable atmosphere.

This hostel is a nice & cozy place and the location is perfect!(very close to Sentosa). The daily work can usually be done in two hours since there are only three rooms in the house. Mike is a nice person and I made a lot of friends here. Actually this is my first experience on Worldpackers and I would say that I love it so much! Also Singapore is such a nice place that I would definitely visit it again 😃

This was my first experience of this type and I have to say it was an absolute success. The hostal is great and has everything anyways me needs. The host is a nice person who will make you feel good during your time at the hostel. The location and facilities of Happy Snail are great.

I think I was lucky to have such a great experience as a first one. I could not be happier with the result. I highly recommend it.

I volunteered at hostels before, but at Happy Snail it was the first time I stayed at the reception and it was very interesting to experience.
Mike is always on hand to help.
It is well worth the experience.

Thank you Mike :)

I really had fun in Mike's Hostel, the atmosphere was perfect and I met a lot of people. The place is near Chinatown and it's possible to get to the center by walk. At the hostel, the duties are easy and you will have time to visit the city. I totally recommend the experience.

I had a great experience working in Happy Snail Hostel. The hostel is in good conditions and it is easy to clean. I got to know many guests and I had an incredible time with them in Singapore. Also Mike is very nice and he really cares about the hostel.
I truly recommend this work exchange for at least two weeks.
