I had the best of times at the Bent Prop. John and his team made me feel at home and would check in every day or so to make sure I was doing ok!
I could not have asked for a better first Workaway experience and I would recommend this place to everyone.
Thanks again for everything!

My experience in Alaska has been amazing. The people of the staff was great and the tasks very easy. I had a lot of facilities to do things and know Alaska. I recommend this hostel to visit this state.

For personal reasons I couldn't make it work. John, the owner, emphasized and comprehended me a 100%. Also, he offered me to stay one extra night without charging me until I could figure everything out. He is an incredible person and I will always be grateful.
