The hostel is huge, the staff is amazing. Unfortunately wouldn't recommend, is not normal hostel work, is more of a hotel than a hostel. There's only 2 people as live-in staff and since is more of a hotel, all the staff is payed and live out.
The main reason why I wouldn't recommend Safestay is because you have to work 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, just like a normal employee but not payed at all.
That's not a hostel experience.
