As my first volunteer experience I’m really grateful! The people are really nice, I made a lot of friends, I enjoyed every time there! As worker I had a lot of new experiences cause the Hostel is bigger than I imagined before arrive and with a lot of works to do. The male staff dorm is amazing with a great view. The city is big, but is not as expected for the second biggest city in England, you have everything that you need near, the Hostel’s location is very good, 10~15min from centre. Thanks for these 2 months!!! I recommend!!!

Being apart of Hatter's team was a great experience. You will get the opportunity to perform different tasks, and meet a lot of great people from all around the world! Birmingham is kinda ugly, but because you will have a great time at hatters, it won't matter at all. The only downside is that the girls volunteers stay in a dorm, and the boys have a flat, which is not really fair. Otherwise everything is pretty nice and I will miss my time here! Thank you to the managers and everyone in the team, see you someday :)

Great experience! The manager Angelo was super nice, and always available. The hostel was huge, the volunteers room was by far the best part. The location is near the center , so its easy to go out and explore the city.

It has been such a great honor to be part of the Hatters. Everyone has been great with me and they have had patience and understanding when necessary. I hope that everyone who goes to live a Worldpackers experience will be like mine.
Thanks all.
