I recommend it to everyone. The experience was so good that I stayed longer. I loved all of the staff and other trade works. If you're reading this and still have doubts about applying, you won't regret going to the hostel. I learned so much and made a lot of friends for live there.

I had the most amazing month at the hostel. Staff is a stunning group of people I feel so lucky to have met. This was my first worldpackers gig and I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you to everyone who made it so special. I will carry my experience here in all my future endeavors. Eternally grateful.

I had a great time at the hostel! I felt like communication between staff and volunteers was smooth and efficient. The tasks were always as described, and the work hours were as stated after the first two weeks. Dinner was always delicious, too! When I arrived there was a new system where I worked a little more initially, but during the last part of my stay I had a lot of free time! The facilities are constantly cleaned and I felt comfortable there. Perfect location with easy access to all of the attractions and nature hikes. I would absolutely recommend the hostel!

I absolutely LOVED it here but the only thing I think to change is the social aspect. Yes they hosted events but most of the time you could see a divide between staff and guests. I think too many people hang out in the smoke room and get lost in time there. The pub crawls need more organization. So does karaoke. But my maintenance position was AMAZING! Sacsha was GREAT leadership as well as haru! Sam and Torin are amazing! The hostel rooms and bathrooms are ALWAYS clean and well maintained by maintenance and housekeeping! The hours are perfect for people who want to explore or get a 2nd job!
