The shifts were easy to do and to learn and we had plenty of free time every week. We had the opportunity to record and edit some training videos besides cleaning and check-in/check-out tasks. The hostel is close to downtown and supermarket. We had an episode of misunderstanding with one of the managers because of the way of dealing with conflict resolution with us and also unsatisfaction with the way of dealing with the volunteers. The other manager turned the things better and easier. All in all, it was a great experience!

The managers are nice and flexible. The hours of work are easy to achieve and you have free time to travel and explore the city. The hostel is charming and comfortable. It was a great experience to live! I would certainly come back.

It was a great rewarding experience. The hours you have to work are totally fair for what you get in exchange. Alina and Jo are quite flexible regarding timetables, so that you can create a schedule that fits your needs. I did a little bit of everything and I gained experience in things I had never done before like painting. I liked the city of Providence, it has lots of universities, cafes and bars to go out at night and it also has beautiful parks and landscapes. It is a city I would live in. You can visit other cities like Newport and Boston while you are here. I am thankful and happy :)
