My experience as a Worldpacker in there was the best month of my life. Every single thing in that hostel is perfect: starting with the best host you could ask, Frank and Michel, and the best fellow worldpackers; following with Roos and the rest of the animal crew; and finishing with the hostel itself. Both the host & the staff felt as a family, and the place as a second home. I did the cleaning shift, and I was happy to wake up every morning to do my tasks! I learned so much over there and I would definitely love to go back!
I REALLY DONT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! Don't be fool like me, don't let be
deceived by these good reviews, it is just favor exchange. Believe me.
I applied to social media, night shift, reception and cleaning. When I arrived just cleaning. We could not settle down in some room, they made us (the volunteers) change our rooms 3 times (just because he wanted). When he saw that we were unhappy, said that he was the owner and could do whatever he wants. Michel (the owner) was making everybody tense and afrai...
Guys, I just have 600 characters, please send me a message and I can explain better!
Very sad to read this review.
Dear Junior, it looks like it that you are just to young to understand how things work in real life.Real men(adults) talk face to face.
If you where so unhappy, tense and afraid, then why didn't we hear anything from you when you where here??When you can't do a simple job like cleaning, we couldn't let you do the night shifts or reception because you are not responsible enough. (just to young)
If you paid a little bit more attention then you good know the reason why the volunteers needed to change rooms ones in a while. Our guests are a little bit more important, and as you know we are always busy. That means you had to change rooms. Besides that.......
Changing rooms was to protect you, the gay volunteer and the female volunteers, from annoying guests from Italy.
One thing you did understand, is that i am one of the owners, and when i ask or tell you to change rooms, you simply have to do that.
My experience at 3BE was better than expected, Franklin, Michel and the volunteers i met are excellent people, i had lots of fun with them.
The job is simple and easy to do, there's always plenty time to enjoy the day as you want.
Eindhoven is a nice place to stay, peaceful, beautiful and funny, and 3BE the best option for a volunteer in Netherlands.
i wish you the best guys and i'll be back for sure
I feel really disappointed to 3BE Hostel, I applied for a certain type of work and the hours specified was only "4 hours"... They don't have employers and want the Volunteers to do all the work. There was a Volunteer that worked more than 8 hours, when she wanted to do anything for her like going out and meet the city Michel acted really rude to her. I talked to him saying that what he was doing was wrong and he became more rude saying that the type of job I applied (Videography and social media) is only a hobby. hile the Volunteers was doing all the work Michel only walked with the dog.
I had a very pleasant stay at 3BE and would highly recommend his hostel. It was a home away from home and the hosts are great people. The hostel is very clean and tidy and you won't be expected to work more than the stated hours, giving you enough free time to explore. Being conveniently located near train/bus stations was also very handy!
