Thanks to Jessie and PJ for giving me the opportunity to volunteer in their hostel.
I have lived an authentic experience in Ireland. Many local people live in the hostel so I could practice a lot of English.
It is true that being a hostel sometimes there are strange people but I have never had any problems. The tasks are very easy and only three hours a day, in addition there is free time to visit the surroundings.
I miss a lot my mamá Jessie she is the perfect mánager for me always pending that everything goes ok.

My first world packers experience and it was great. Jessie & PJ are friendly and welcoming, tasks are easy and never take more than 3 hours a day, would definitely recommend.

PJ replied

Alejandro!!! It's been one year since you left us. How are you!!!! Come and visit us sometimes. We miss your Tortilla patatas!!!



This was my first experience with Worldpackers and I’m sure i will repeat. Easy work to do and cheerful mates to share day to day. PJ and especially Jessie very kind to all of us. I have felt at home.


PJ replied

We miss you Alvaro. Come and visit us one day.



Cashel was my first experience with worlpackers and volunteering in a hostel and it couldn't have been better. I loved every minute of the four weeks I spent there. I'll miss all the amazing people I've met... staff and guests.
About the work, the tasks are pretty simple, basically housekiping in the morning and reception/ironing in the afternoon. Sometimes volunteers work in different turns, but never more than 3 hours a day. Jessie is very respectful of the hours worked limit and is super flexible with the days off.
I definitely will miss all the tea and pub times.


PJ replied

Cris is 100% a 5 star volunteer & We love her!!! It's so sad that she has to leave us to continue her journey. She's a fast learner with good work ethic. Responsible and you can totally count on her. We highly recommend Cris to any future host out there. If you have a chance to host her, Don't Miss it. Cris. Thank you so much for everything you done for us here. Abrigado. Come back to us any time. We miss You so much & also envy you are in a beautiful place now!!! Lots of love from Jessie & the team
