This was my first worldpackers experience and I really liked it! I stayed there for 2 weeks but really wish I had stayed longer. It's a very social place and everyone could talk together! The work is not difficult at all and everyone is working together so it's never boring. After work there's plenty of opportunities to do things together or on your own. Go for a walk around the area or take the bus into Gimhae for example. If you want to explore Busan it is not too far away to go on days off. A really good experience that I would recommend to anyone wanting to spend some time in Korea!

Everyday at Cloudberry was a happy one. The host is very friendly and flexible, and always doing his best for the volunteers. We were also taken on many amazing road trips and had plenty of chances to experience the local culture. The food was home mad and very delicious. And the most important thing - I always felt at home in Cloudberry thanks to the people that work and volunteer there :). I am very grateful and happy to have had the opportunity to stay there.

Cloudberry is a very special place. My first Worlpackers experience and the bar has been set high! I've felt very grateful staying here and meeting lovely people- hosts and volunteers alike. Sam is the absolute best and goes out of his way to give you a great time. The vibe is good, the food is amazing and the location is lovely - Gimhae is prettier than I expected, it's a great area to bike around and from the bus terminal you can easily get to wherever you want to go. The type and amount of work depends on the season and customers, so it varies, but felt meaningful always. I will come back!

Sam was a great host! He is always very accommodation and quick to offer recommendations in the local area. He also very graciously fixed up all the bikes for the volunteers which made my experience of traveling into town all the more enjoyable. Sam also really puts in the effort to bring us on little cultural excursions from time to time which really showed his gratitude to the volunteers for their work. I would highly recommend Sam and Cloudberry! :)

Cloudberry team is the best host you could wish for. They are so thoughtful, kindhearted and cared a lot about the volunteers. Everyday we had cooked homemade meals and weekly trips. I really had a great time, thanks for everything. I will choose this host over and over again!
