I stayed for 5 weeks in the hostel. It was my 1st volunteering and i can say that it was a very good experience. I totally recommend this hostel. Effie and her family are very friendly and welcoming. I felt like in home. The staff was also excellent. Everyday a lot of friends come to play on the pool table and they're all very nice too. About the tasks and shifts: Everything is exactly as described on the advice. I didn't had any experience on this kind of work before but Effie and the staff helped me to get started. The location is perfect to explore the city. Thank you all !

I Had a wonderful Experience here! I can testify that all the reviews you have read so far are absolutely true. work is simple just 4 Hr shift, mostly checking in or out of hostel guests, you could face some challenges with the language barrier but nothing that can't be handled. Effie is a Gem of a person, always really happy and cheerful and happy to help. The hostel is very nice and clean. it has this very unique style which I absolutely loved. This was my first volunteering experience and I couldn't recommend this place enough to everyone starting out as well. Go for it!!

The hostel is well located in the historic center of Bankok, which is definitely a plus. It is, therefore, a great starting point for other places in the region, such as: Khao San Road, Wat Arun and Wat Pho (the two main temples in the city). If you like the bustling and pace of a big city such as Bangkok, it's a good place to stay.

Great experience, can't recommend it enough! The facilities are very nice and the location is great! In terms of the work it was 4 hours a day with one day off per week (they were very flexible with the time of your shifts and days off if you asked in advance). Communication was fairly good. Effie (the owner) is extremely friendly and welcoming and was constantly suggesting things to do in my time off and helping explain the best way to get there. The other staff were also super nice and fun to work with. While I was there there was typically one other volunteer staying at the hostel.
