It was my first Worldpackers experience and I was a bit nervous, but I had such a warm welcome that it felt like home already on the first evening!
Kyle and Reon are so funny, understanding, always ready to help and they really care about that everyone feels comfortable.
The work was easy. Because of the renovations we had to work a bit more, but when we did extra hours we got free pizza or made fun activities as a thankyou :)
The house with the loud pub downstairs and some broken things was definitly not ideal, but the atmosphere was sooo great and I can totally recommend this host!!



Amazing experience, amazing people. I had intense and learning days. I made many friends and enjoy the city very much. Thank you so much, guys! <3



No words can describe how grateful I am for this family who received me with open arms from day 1!
Hours are super fair, the staff connection is just amazing and you will find endless opportunities here.
Part of who I am today is because of this place, and I will never, ever, forget that.
Thank you Bruna, for being an amazing manager and leader, you are always giving the staff and guests all the support needed, even working extra hours and doing the impossible just to make sure all of us are happy in our workplace :)
Thank you New Cross Family, for everything, I will always love you ❤️



I definitely recommend this place for a unique experience!
There I was cleaner and handyman. As a handyman I could chose my own time in working. The cleaning work isn't bad and they always work together. Also the timetable is suitable.. :)
The crew is really cool they create all the environment. We spent a lot of time together in parks and parties. I already miss them
I had a such great time in New Cross!!



New Cross Inn has such a warm and welcoming atmosphere that my first experience with Worldpackers couldnt be better. I went to London to practice my English but I learned so much more in the hostel that I can't even mesure. Thank you so much Bruna for giving me this opportunity, the great time and for the friends that I will never forget. Love you all s2
