Volunteering in the hostelwas a really nice experience. The work is fair and flexible, the location is very close to the beach and the atmosphere is amazing - I made many many friends there! I stayed in the hostel for one month and if I had more time in Australia I would definitely have stayed longer :D

It was an amazing experience ! At the beginning I was asking me why am I staying so long because the city isn't the most animated, there isn't a lot of activity, but day by day I found a family, this hostel is really peaceful and friendly, common area are amazing to meet people, and the job help us to connect to each other. (We haven't 2 days off just 1) but the work is okay. All together we created a lot of activity, things to do, hike, beach, music, game, party.. it was sooo hard to leave this amazing place cause you really meet people and live with them for a long. Thank you very much !!

My experience at the hostelwas amazing. The vibes at the hostel are unmatched and this is down to Kerry's brilliant décor, wooden furniture imported from Bali and a garden full of plants, it feels as if you are in your own tropical oasis. I was working at a bar down the road, and they were always really flexible with my hours, I knew I could balance both hostel work and hospitality work, which made it really easy to get into a routine. I ended up extending my stay, just like many of my friends, I could not recommend this hostel enough!
