Volunteering at Tipsea Turtle has been one of the best decisions I have ever taken. The team / staff was absolutely amazing. At Gili Trawangan Subhan, Dika, Daniel, Hamdi, Rico, Abu, Ari, Nastia and Mia became mi family in almost a week. I’m Gili Air Catherine, Eriel and Mr Joko took care of me and helped me integrate as quickly as possible. The tasks are very simple, clear and easy to do if you are an extrovert who enjoys meeting new people and socializing. It is also an incredible opportunity for you to learn about the local culture. I would absolutely recommend !

The Gili islands are beautiful and I definitely recommend volunteering here. As I met so many new friends. The staff and owners are super welcoming and friendly. It was nice to have the hostel within walking distance to the main road with all the clubs and restaurants. This place is paradise, and you won’t want to leave.

I could not recommend this tipsea more! I stayed for over a month and if it was up to me , I would never leave..

Ry, Kyle, Catherine, Subhan and the whole team are such great and caring hosts that after a couple of days they become your second family. Meeting guests and hanging out with them is especially fun and honestly the best job one could have - the hostel attracts the most wonderful and interesting people from al over the world which you would have not met otherwise. Everyone is super friendly, smart, easy-going, and super fun to be around. You’ll have the best time in your life!
