The experience was good, cause I think that all the experiences in our lifes are useful. The hostel is a cozy place and we feel like home there, Rory and Hanna and very friendly and easy going people. The hours and days off are respected and negociable, and we also have food included.
The city however is quite calm and there isn´t so many thing to do there, to visit another cities we always have to go to Dublin, and from there take another bus, what make us spend lot of money.

This was my first experience, and I honestly could not have asked for a better place or better people to spend it with. From the first day it felt like home, everyone who works there are so kind and welcoming, it was most definitely a family. The work and hours are fair, and you have the opportunity to do a little bit of everything. This experience allowed me to gain skills in reception, cleaning, cooking, maintenance and in navigating the online programs.
The city is wonderfully located with a bus station for exploring bigger cities is just down the road. Thank you & Miss you all SO MUCH!

I had a great experience at the Spoon and the Stars hostel. The staff is lovely. Owners Rory and Hannah are great. There are 4 main 5 hour shifts. First is 8 to 1pm, and it's morning reception and house keeping. 10 to 3 which is house keeping. 12 to 5 which i mainly reception but with some housekeeping if they need help. Lastly 5 to 10 which is reception work. Drogheda is really close to Dublin so you could do day trips (get a leap card, but don't do round trip on it, always do singles), and just as close to Belfast. Between the staff and the long term guests felt like a big family.

I would fully recommend going to Spoon and the stars. Working there is a very fun adventure, there is always new people to meet and nice things to do in the surroundings, the town is nice. The work we do is simple and quick, sometimes can be a little time consuming but nothing you cannot finish during your schedule. Everything is well organized and Rory, Sal and Hanna (the bosses) are ready to help at any time. It's easy to feel home because everybody is very welcoming. I loved my time at the Spoon and the stars, I learned a lot and would for sure go back and work there again as a volunteer.
