I loved my stay at the hostel's. Gee, the owner and the staff are amazing and you get to know them well. A very social place, easy to make friends and have the best time. The work itself doens't require too much and you'll have time to chill, but be prepared to be social and interact with guests as that is the main thing volunteers are for. Ended up extending my stay as I did not want to leave. Definitely a home away from home. Will be back one day. Much love ❤️

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I honestly couldn't ask for a better place. The host, Gee, is an amazing and funny guy and that creates such a lovely environment to live and work in. The hostel organizes and attends a lot of social events (parties, pool tournaments, movie nights, etc.) which is a great way to meet new people. At the hostel's we say we are all a big family, and it really feels like that!!

I had a really lovely experience at the hostel! Gee's family and staff who work at the hostel were extremely welcoming and flexible so I was still able to get to know Ahangama and do some fun activities. We had some amazing nights out as a team and with the guests and I would love to go back in the future
