The hostel is pretty nice and calm, you’ll find everything you need : a very well equipped kitchen, clean bathrooms, a nice tv room and of course the pool ! The team was awesome, Jana (the owner) and Kevin (the manager) are super nice and love laughing !! They will help you with wathever you need : information about farmwork, information about the town, etc. They choose the staff so well : everyone I worked with has amazingly nice and fun ! I definitely recommend JJ’s backpackers !

I had a very good experience at JJ's Backpackers. Yana, Marcus and Kevin are very nice people and I enjoyed my interactions with them. The job was as described, simple cleaning, and the hours never went past what's advertised. The hostel is very mellow and quiet for the most part. Most people that stay there are not problematic or loud. The other girls were easy to work with and very flexible. If anyone had an additional job, they were flexible with you. Yana was always willing to help as long as she was able to.
Thing to improve: Clear instructions upon arrival of duties and expectations

I’m having such a great time that I gotta change my plans to stay longer! Kevin, Jana and Marcus are lovely, they really make you feel at home. This is a “happy hostel” so you must have sense of humor and good vibes to be a part of the team!
