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.

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.
