Viri is super nice. Everyone was super welcoming too, especially the other volunteers.

My stay in the hostel was incredible. Viri treated all the volunteers like her own family, and all of the hostel staff invited volunteers to private gatherings with their own friends and completely made me feel like a part of the family. The whole team is incredibly kind and respectful. PV itself is super safe and fun with amazing nature and day trips only 30 mins away. Workload was also incredibly manageable and gave me plenty of time to still explore the city and see the beach. THANKYOU VIRI 🤍🤍🤍

Overall, I liked my time at the hostel. I ran their social media, so I had a lot of free time. The shared dorm was comfortable and we had our own toilet. There was a point where I was the only volunteer so that got lonely because the hostel itself isn't very social (only common area is the kitchen). I'm not sure what volunteering at the hostel will be like in the future with Viri gone, the ramen restaurant closed, and very few volunteers. I would wait to apply until reviews are posted under new management.

This was my 1st experience with Worldpackers and I'm so happy I chose the hostel. I spent 6 weeks here running the hostel's social media accounts and I truly loved it. My workload was SO manageable, creating content for IG and TikTok. What I loved the most was the flexibility Viri gave me. As I was creating content around the city and hostel, I didn't have fixed hours and I could manage my time freely, giving me SO much free time for my own projects and exploring the city. Viri and the team are so great, always making you feel part of the 10/10 fam ❤️ Thank you so much Viriii, love ya!!!

My stay at TentoTen quickly became very confortable. At the beginning I applied for the kitchen helper but it wasn't what I expected so when I talked it to Viri she understood immediately and changed my role into receptionist, so i could have learned something new during my stay. Viri is an amazing person, always smiley, super sweet and ready to help you. I got along with all the people that work there cause they are all very funny and joyful. Sadly I had to interrupt my stay before for the short stay I had with my VISA. But yes, for the people i've met it was absolutely worth it!
