Learning & Fun


It was a lovely hostel to work at. The work is fair, you have a lot of free time, the kitchen is huge and fully equipped. Portrush is a cute little city by the beach, so peacefull in autumn/ winter, but I heard it's superbusy in the summer though. I enjoyed a lot my time at Portrush Holiday Hostel and would definitely come back. Philip and Colette are awesome and good people. Wish you guys all the best!

Volunteering in Portrush Holiday Hostel has been my best Worldpackers experience so far! Philip and Colette are incredibly kind, they always asign a fair schedule and respect it and they treat you like part of the family. Also, they are always looking for new ways to improve the hostel and give guests a great experience. I worked with them managing the hostel website, taking pictures of the place, checking guests in and other kinds of reception work. Portrush is also a charming area, perfect if you like to hike and being outdoors. I had an amazing time and I would highly recommend this place!
