It's definitely the best place for volunteering in Dublin. The staff is very nice and friendly. Brian is an awesome person, very patient. He is the kind of boss that not only teaches you, but he also "gets his hands dirty". Plus all the other volunteers are nice and are always trying to help you. I could feel at home during the time I was at Mec hostel!

The hostel location is really nice, and the job is not difficult. I had enough time to visit Dublin and interesting sites in Ireland. Thanks Brian, Katica, Marijana, Aline and Ivana.

This was my first experience at Worldpackers and I think it couldn't be better! At Mec Hostel I had a spacious bedroom, Kitchen equipped with everything I needed, new baths and a great garden. The Hostel is really situated in the heart of the city and the staff is very experienced, nice and easygoing. I loved to be part of it.
