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.

This place is perfect in so many ways for people who really want to share with others and is open to learn and to suit for the time you're staying. Alex is a wonderful host, also the volunteers team are so welcoming and easygoing. And the hostel is a real definition of what a hostel life is! But I think there's a place for each of us and for personal convictions I couldn't complete my experience there, that I'm pretty sure it would have been wonderful in another stage of my life :) Thank you for receiving me, Alex.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I couldn't have picked a better place. the hostel felt like home thanks to Alex, Arwin and the other volunteers. The atmosphere in the hostel is always great, you get to meet new people everyday and make really good friends. The work there is easy and you can always count on Alex and Arwin for help. The other volunteers became my family, and the guests were always super nice, too! I would love to come back some day and I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone!! Thank you so much for everything the hostel❤️🌶️

Alex and Arwin are super wholesome hosts. They ask you every week if you have some special days you want off and the work was suuuper easy. Only 3 shifts a week and the hostel is located pretty much in the centre of Pest which was also suuuper useful 🥰 all the guests are soo cute and it is a pleasure to spend my summer here! I can only recommend :)

I'd absolutely recommend this position at the hostel! It really feels like a volunteering, because Alex & Arwin are always around to help you, when there's something to do! The hostel itself is the right balance between quiet and socializing! You will never feel alone. Meeting other travelers is very easy, because everybody I met was very open-minded. My only small suggestion of improvement is the small volunteers-room, and the fact that there are only two fans and no Air-Condition, but as far as I know Arwin is already working on that! :)

Ahhh Max, I'm sorry I didn't write a review in time. But to anyone who reads this Maxim is the best, great worker and lovely person. Would always recommend to any host, and hes welcome back anytime.

I loved my time at the hostel! The staff here feel like family. The days you work can be long but it's only 2 days a week, so it's a great balance with being able to do other things on all of your days off. The work is easy. It may not be the most social hostel in terms of activities, but you have the option to run activities yourself and cook family dinners if you want to! The vibe is v chill. The location is awesome. My only regret is not staying longer, cause one month feels too short :( if you have any questions, pls feel free to message me!! :)
