It was my first trip, an incredible experience in my life, I had difficulties at first but Madison and the group helped me whenever I needed it. The work is smooth with flexible hours, not to mention that the city of Kelowna is beautiful!
I recommend this experience in getting to know this place. Thanks Madison and all the friends I made this time there :)

This is by far the best place I've volunteer. I felt at home almost immediately, I had a shared room but I had my own privacy.
It's very well located, close to restaurants, bars and mostly everything you need. The beach is a five-minute walk.

This is the perfect place to live hostel life!!

Such amazing hostel, with lovely people, looks like a family.
The schedule to work is flexible, and the tasks are the same as other hostel, reception and housekeeping.
The hostel its located near of the lake (5m walk), where you can swim and have fun and everyday we they have different activities and the energy there is really amazing, was difficult to leave that place
