Even tough i was working in other hostels be for this was my first experience with Worldpackers. The communication with the Rob and Lucy was super easy and chill. If I had any questions or concerns I could text or call them at any time. The hostels is an amazing environment where you get to meet other volunteers and guest from all over the world. The work it self is easy to handle and pretty much self explaining. I had a wonderful time there and will definitely be back at some point.

It was simply amazing! It was my first experience as a volunteer and I didn't know how I would feel about it but I just loved it! I feel like I had the chance to grow as a person and meet wonderful people who will be forever in my heart. Lucy and Robert are always there for you and are very flexible. (Robby, their son, is just a very cute and fun plus btw) I am very grateful for all they have done and for all the super fun experiences I've had the chance to take part in. Thank you one more time and I hope to see you soon. ♥️
