The Experience

We're looking for a superhero to join our family! As a Packer, you'll collaborate with the daily cleaning and housekeeping activities, as well as administrative activities. Cooking is our common activity, we all cook together. So, if you feel like sharing & learning cooking skills, you're welcome to cook with us the hostel dinners. If you have handyman skills, it is a plus, not required. Sometimes we have general things to be fixed.

I spent a wonderful month at Spicy Hostel. Alex and Arwin were very welcoming and I quickly felt at home. The other volunteers are adorable and the work is not hard at all and is organized in such a way that you will have plenty of time to visit Budapest or organize trips for a few days outside the capital. Go ahead and join Spicy Hostel, you won't regret it !

Spicy hostel was extremely well organised, I only worked 2 days a week from 8-10 that left me with a lot of free time to explore the city. Alex & Arwin are just the sweetest boys you’ll come across, they’re always around to help, you can ask them endless questions and they’ll guide you through the process. The city easily falls in my top 3 cities, it’s the perfect mix of nature & city. I would definitely recommend you to go, spicy turned into a family & I’m really sad about leaving. It’s a perfectly safe, clean & collaborative hostel. Definitely recommend!!

This was my first volunteer experience and it really couldn't have gone better. Arwin, Alex and the volunteers were incredible, they helped me, accompanied me and the work was very enjoyable.
The organization of working time is different because you work a whole day, twice a week. But the truth is that it is quite and there is always someone to help you if you need it. Thanks for everything! It was incredible.

Spicy Hostel it was the best experience that I could have in Budapest. The hostel is small, what is good, have a familiar vibe and great energy of people. The interaction with Alex and Arwin was really nice and a great pleasure to meet both. They help a lot at the tasks even when they aren't working, this is what good leaders do when they can. The tasks is common to a hostel in reception, cleaning and housekeeping and the division of time is amazing, being possible to enjoy a lot the amazing city of Budapest! I tottaly recommend this place.

This was the best place I could have been, Budapest for me was one of the best experiences and I'm sure it wouldn't have been like this if it hadn't been for all the people I met in this hostel. I came to this place without planning it and in the end I didn't want to leave, I always felt at home. Thank you Arwin and Alex for the opportunity to share with you, it has been one of the best experiences of my life. I already miss you, I have a soul full of happiness♥️
