The Experience

Do you have a skill in the trades? A chippy with good banter? A sparky with nice party tricks? We need someone who has worked in carpentry, electrical, plumbing, or is overall just a handyman/woman! Our low season is approaching and we could use someone with these skills to revamp our hostel into the premiere backpackers hostel in SE London or even ALL of London.

It was my first experience with Worldpackers and was amazing. I loved being in London again and meeting so many special people. The public (guests) is totally different than I imagined haha, this made a certain impact at first.. but the team makes up for it. I had some problems with the functions in the first month, but before the first conversation everything was organised. Bruna (the manager at the time) was always very available and attentive to our demands. Thanks everybody, specially Bruna and Kyle for the opportunity. It was a great time.

some("Great work environment, friendly and kind team, awesome and relaxed management- thanks Kyle!, cool location, workload was fair and distributed evenly amongst the staff members. Enough space in the hostel to have quiet time when needed and great common room to encourage social activity and fun within the hostel. ")

Ellie was a pleasure to be around and get to know. She was willing to do any job that we gave her and was proactive about taking on other tasks. Her strength is admirable, always working hard and having fun at the same time. Thank you for everything! New Cross Inn will be always open for you!

Spent 1,5 months in London. Unforgettable experience!
Mostly because of all the wonderful people I managed to meet. Staff members were like a second family <3
Hostel's location is also good, and you get a plenty of time to explore London:)
