Every week is different and your jobs will range from housekeeping, cleaning,painting & gardening.

My time at the hostelwas absolutely amazing. Kerrie is extremely kind and flexible, and I met so many amazing people. the hostelis lovely, with a beautiful patio with a pool table and board games where everyone tends to socialize. It is also a short walk from the beach, which we all enjoyed. I'd absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a truly memorable volunteering experience and looking to meet other travelers.

A family-run hostel where life is good, and where you can meet wonderful people. The work is simple, no stressful. Kerry and her mother are lovely, always caring and helpful. If you have any questions, they're always happy to answer and help. For me, my experience in this hostel has been synonymous with evolution, whether in the English language, which I practice every day, or with other people, as I live in a community. Working in this hostel gives you knowledge and experience in housekeeping, which can be useful when looking for work in Australia. I highly recommend it !

I stayed 4 weeks at the Keiraleigh the hosteland I had the best time. The working hours are easy and flexible and I always had fun working together with my friends. I felt very comfortable there and was able to make good friends with the other volunteers. The town has everything you need and you can easily walk to stores, stations and the beach. I can only recommend this place with Kerrie as a friendly and easy-going host :D
