I spent 4 weeks in olustee it was my first time travelling alone and a great experience. Jeff's always checking in making sure you're happy and having a good time. The work was really easy just moving things and I got the chance to paint a lot too. Would highly recommend :)

I had a great time in olustee. jeff is such a caring and warm person; he is always willing to help. olustee is a small town, but the people I met there made it really fun (and it looks better in person than it does in the pictures). the work you can do is really easy, and you don't need any experience to do it. also jeff is very flexible. iwould totally recommend it, especially for people who are trying to practice english, its a very welcoming and chill place where you can start and have an experience you will never forget

I spend 3 months in Olustee it couldn't imagine something better ! There is absolutely nothing to do in Olustee, but it push you to open to people, and then… you make friends that you're gonna remember your whole life 😊 Jeff is a man with a big heart, with a lot of respect and open minded. He's always gonna do his best to make you happy and learned after mistakes ! This was my first experience travelling I don't regret 1 second I spend here :)

Staying at Jeffs was my first worldpackers experience and I can totally recommend it, especially if you're on the fence about spending your first time abroad somewhere. Olustee is such a small town and not overwhelming at all, trust me;) I met so many lovely and kind people here and Jeff was one of them. Even though he can be a bit direct when it comes to work, he is so easy to talk to and has a big heart. Work is pretty laidback, with him staying true to the hours. You'll never have to work more than what you signed up for and he's just overall a nice and reliable person.

I stayed at the hostel for a short while, but it was beautiful nonetheless. The work varies and Jeff does his best to group you according to your skill level- but no experience is needed. It's the perfect place to gain experience and have fun. Sunny & Jeff are really kind hearted people who genuinely want you to feel welcomed. The town of Olustee is small but it has a lot of charm. It's not boring if you find things to do like: make friends with the locals and help with farm animals, visit the WPA Library, Bingo in Feb, feed the school goat, or head to the creek for some fishing. I'll be back!!

It was a good experience. I met a beautiful people and I learn so fast the lenguage. Maybe a little boring, we stay in a small village and all the afternons you have a lot of free hours. I think if someone like painting, writing... and search a place to disconnect is a good option. The tasks are simple: to reform Jeff's properties like painting, cleaning,... Is not a hard work.

The best thing about being here is the incredible people around you. If it's your first experience, I have no doubt that it's the best place to start. Jeff gives you an incredible confidence so that you are comfortable in that place. I am very grateful to have met such amazing people and I will never forget all the people I have met there. I am leaving happy knowing that I have formed a beautiful family. Both Jeff and Sunny are there for whatever you need. And I will definitely be back soon.

I spend a really good time at Jeff's place. It was my first time in USA and it couldnt have been better. He was always concerned that we could have fun and not get bored here. I met wonderful people and I had so much fun with all of them. The tasks are very easy. We were fixing a house, so almost every day we did something diferent. Plumbing, electricity, gardering, etc. But I mostly did painting. Jeff always provided us all the food that we need. Usually one day per week we worked in Altus, and the rest of the week we worked in the town, Olustee. I have many photos of Olustee in my profile!

I was here for 6 weeks and this was my first experience traveling alone and being in the US. We worked from 10am to 1-2pm and did mostly construction, painting, mowing lawns and cutting trees. I met very interesting and cool people here and had without a doubt one of the best times of my life. The accomodation is really good and you can buy your own food with money provided by Jeff. Olustee is a quiet and peaceful place but if you like doing things that depend more on people than on entertainment infrastructure you will have a great time here. I recommend this experience to every traveler. :)
