Working at the hostelwas my first experience with Worldpackers and I don't think I could have started my trip to Australia any better. I felt at home within the first few days and met great people who welcomed me so nicely. Kerry was such a sweetheart, she created a nice atmosphere and was always there for you.The work you have to do is easy and does not take much time. I have learned so much during my time here and met so many great people who I have taken to my heart. I can highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a break from the stress of daily life.I will definetly come back

There is a lot of different experiences to be had at this hostel. But be prepared to meet a new standard of living that you might now be used to. Keep your expectations low and you will have a great time, but you will learn a lot through living there. I met some great friends there that I will remember for the rest of my life.
