This was my first Worldpackers experience, and what an amazing start. I spent a month at the hostel and loved every day of it. While at the hostel my job was to work a combination of cleaning and reception shifts and then lead one event each week. I would make the hostel dinner on Wednesdays, which was a great event to bring the hostel together and meet new people. I want to thank the owner, Sean, the manager, Kyle, and the rest of our staff and guests for making the hostel feel like a home away from home. I will miss my hostel family very much.

I begin by thanking Sean for the past experience. It allowed me to grow and become more responsible. I met some great people on the trip with whom we shared experiences that allowed me to immerse myself in different cultures. I recommend this experience as it allows you to grow with great people and in a special city.

This was my first experience with WorldPackers and it couldn't be better ! Sean is a very nice person and very chill as a boss. I was in charge of the morning shifts essentially and the tasks were preatty easy. One of the best thing about this experience was meeting people from the hostel, wether staff or customers. Moreover, New-the hostel is an incredible city to discover and it's never boring so don't hesitate to apply to this position ! Special mention to DJ, Ingrid, César, Lorenzo and Cass !!

Collaborating at the hostel has exceeded my expectations as a first volunteer experience. Sean is very respectful and attentive to any individual or group need, he always wants us to feel comfortable as volunteers, and he is very clear about what he expects us to do. The place is perfect for discovering the city as it is a ten-minute walk from the main tourist sites, as well as it iseasy to find public transportation to go to other tourist attractions. The experience of sharing different moments with people from many countries has also been incredible.
