I highly recommend this host. It was a great opportunity to get to know the city, new people and of course the kids! The team is very friendly and Alexandra selects tasks according to your personal interests, which is very important! Working with children was the most exciting memory for me. Many thanks to Dana for cooking, the food was excellent! Sasha and Dana, i really appreciate the time we spent together, hope to see you again!

A great chance to help kind folks at a non-profit promoting bilingualism! The first week, I was a cook, gardener, and photographer during animation camp. The second week, I helped with renovations, which included painting walls, organizing food, and cleaning windows. Some teachers, volunteers, and kids speak English and German, but you'll be able to socially engage with everyone more if you speak Russian. The apartment was cozy and the walk to work was pleasant. In my free time, I explored Hannover and I spent the weekend in Berlin, not too far by train. Overall, an interesting experience.

If you are willing to sleep in the living room with someone working, to open the fridge and finding 90% of food 8/5 months overdue, to work at least 1 or 2 hours more than agreed everyday, to do SIMULTANEOUSLY:housekeeping, handyman,gardening,cleaning,postal carrier,doorperson,serving meals,painting,kids watching,then it could be nice for you. Or if you are fluent in Russian you can teach and it could make it easier. If you, like me,read in their profile that you could go with your English or basic Russian, your experience will be bad as mine probably.But giving overdue food is unforgivable.

Dear Raquel, you have written in your application that you have Russian teaching experience and are willing to work with kids. When you arrived, we figured out that you technically don’t speak any Russian, so teaching in the project which we picked for you was not possible.
All the rest - your tasks, working hours, weekends - was discussed upfront, so I am very surprised to figure out now that it actually didn’t fit.
I think that if something doesn’t fit, people talk about that.
I used to think that our communication worked well.
After you disappeared and never came back 5 minutes before you were supposed to help on the summer festival (with kids, as you wished), the whole picture changed a bit, but still… I am quite surprised so see this review, especially something about the wrong food in the fridge, as the owners of the flat live there and eat together with volunteers. You should have better written that the toilet is outside, it would have surprised me less :D good luck and please don’t write things in your application which are not truth, it will help you next time to find a host which will fit better.
PS: pity to say that, but this is our first bad experience with Worldpackers, hopefully the last one.



It was a great experience, Alexandra is a great host. The work was easy and the people in the center are very nice

This was my first experience at worldpackers and I had such a great time! The tasks were exactly as we agreed and if something wasn't as expected, we could easily communicate and solve it. Alex were very nice and welcoming, the mood at the school with the other volunteers was awesome and the kids were super cute. I certainly recommend this experience to other travelers!
