Stayed at Portree Hostel for a month. Great atmosphere, felt at home from the first minute. The 4h of work a day leave you with enough spare time to explore the city and its surroundings, or practice your English with the other volunteers or guests. We cooked and ate together every night, which really helped creating the feeling of us beeing one big family. A big "Thank you!" to Ciaran, Magda, Kristian, David and all the volunteers that I can call friends now!
My experience in Portree Hostel was simply amazing
What I liked the most is the atmosphere both by the guests and by the members of the volunteer team and the workers too.
Here you have the chance too meet people from all over the world, have a conversation with them and even plan something together!
About the job is too fair, all the conditions mentioned are totally true!
,Waterford in summer is very relax, special for going out during the week
If you want to live an unforgetable experience in Irland I recommend this place for sure!
Thanks for everything Ciaran!
Ha sido una experiencia maravillosa, mucho mejor de lo esperado. El grupo humano es excelente y las características del hostel permiten conocer gente muy distinta y de diferentes partes del mundo e interaccionar con ellos dentro de una atmósfera muy familiar, incomparable con otros hostels.
Ha sido un mes inolvidable y por supuesto que recomiendo Portree Hostel, sin duda.
