Learning & Fun


If you are coming to UK, Brighton is the best place in England! Close by to London, beach and great night life!
This role is a normal housekeeper position: breakfast set up, keep the hostel organized and change beds. The team from Home is amazing, everyone is great fun and welcome!
It is importante know that over here you are going to work a few hours a week, get paid for that and then you will pay they back for your stay. Payment is enought to cover your stay but you need to be prepaid to pay the 1st month with your own money!
TKS guys for make me feel HOME during my stay!

Great experience! I met a lot of nice people who I will remember, location of the hostel is very good and Brighton is a nice city. Sometime the job is a bit hard, but never too much.
I had such fun during this experience, thank you Home Brighton!

About the host

Home Brighton provides a vibrant environment for travellers to stay near the seaside and co-exist with other like minded and fun backpackers. We have a centrally located building with a fun bar and three floors of backpackers accommodation. We love Worldpackers as it allows us to teach people new skills and meet people from all walks of life.
