Selina liverpool was one of the best experiences i had as a volunteer. I want to thank David who is the hostel manager and responsible for the volunteers, for the care and attention he gave us.
if you want to immerse yourself in the local culture and get to know the city, this is the place.
the hostel is in the city center, you will make friends with the staff who are local too.
thanks for inspiring me David.

Can't recommend this experience strongly enough! It's been my first ever volunteer experience away from home and it's been much better than anticipated, so much that I've decided to extend my time here.
Both the manager and the other volunteers have made my time enjoyable and the experience really transformative. Tasks are clear and we work as a team
No two days have been the same which I particularly appreciate yet I've managed to go at my own pace when I needed it.
I would encourage everyone who is considering a hostel stay to apply for Selina. Also, you'll simply love Liverpool

AMAZING EXPERIENCE MATE! The best place in Liverpool, you are in the center of Liverpool, the Hotel is big and very nice. David is the manager, the best manager you can imagine, he always helps you with whatever you need and is very sociable and very funny. The work is easy, some clean, houskeeping and most of the time in the beer garden as a waiter, receptionist or cleaning glasses. One of my best experiences at Worldpacker is like a family <3 Actually I decided to extend more days. Thanks for all LOVE!!

Amazing experience! Selina is very well located, in the city center. The atmosphere is great and the manager, David, is the best English I've ever met. He is helpfull, funny, friendly and flexible. The work is not difficult and we have plenty time to enjoy the city. We've just opened a beer garden here so if you would like to improve your skills in it, this is the place for you. I reccomend this experience a lot (I liked it so much that I am extending it <3).

It has been an incredible experience, starting with the hostel which is in a great location next to the city center. The whole team of volunteers has been very friendly and always ready to help, manager David is a very nice guy and is always willing to help us. I super recommend the experience!
