I had an amazing experience at Wanderfalls. I was there with a friend and it was our first volunteering. Carroll and Andre were really supportive and kind! They explained all the tasks on our first day, but they were always available to help us with any doubts we might have. The hours of working were pretty easy, and they provided us a weekly routine, so volunteers could organize their free time activities in advance. Besides all that, Carroll and Andre really care for their volunteers, from lending clothes to preparing a Saint Patrick's meal, I felt at home from day one!

Such a great experience! Carroll and Andre are amazing hosts, and they did everything to make my volunteering time there a happy one. Besides the patience to teach the tasks (and sometimes teach again), they also noticed that my friend and I didn't have ideal clothes for the snow, so, they lent us warm coats and boots. On Saint Patrick's Day, they also cooked a traditional dinner for us. It was delicious! In the Wanderfalls Guesthouse, the weekly volunteer schedules are well organized, and the tasks are easily done. The best part, is meeting the guests and make friends from all over the world!

That was a really great experience with Caroll and Andre. They are really nice people and the tasks were pretty much fair. The guesthouse is very comfortable and there is nothing to complain about. It is worth going especially if you like small cities , but if you are going during winter like me, get ready because it can be really cold up there and it snows a lot.

If you come to Niagara you will have a great time helping here, it is close to the bus as well as the market. The falls are about a 25 min walk around a small town feel sort of place. Carroll and Andre are great hosts. I love that they did not micro manage us. We were given tasks that they wanted done that day mainly cleaning and checking in guests. The hostel is an older home with 4 guest rooms some private rooms some dorms. It is very relaxed and not a party hard place which was great for me to unwind after some long travels.
