I loved the time I was able to spend at the hostel. Joshua and Erin are amazing people and very welcoming. They were always making their best to make sure everybody was having a good time there. All other staff members were also so nice! The hostel vibe is amazing, everything is nice and I felt home. It's also well located and I used the bus to go to a bunch of great places and hikings. As I spent a short time there, I did housekeeping and the job was pretty fine. Timetable was just as expected! It was an amazing experience! Thanks to Joshua, Erin and all the hostel team!!

The hostel is an awesome place to work. The people working there are amazing and the guests are always so interesting. There are 2 main types of shirts which are house keeping and front desk. I found housekeeping to be kinda hard and boring but front desk is a lot of fun and you get to know people. Josh and Erin ate super chill and as long as you communicate with them ahead of time they are very flexible on your schedule. A big shout out to Victoria, Nikki, and Alex for making my stay there wonderful. It truly would not have been special with out y'all. Having a car is super helpful!!

I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to travel to the hostel. From the moment you arrive, everyone is very genuine and friendly...even the guests! There are countless activities and events to get into, you're never bored. And it's too easy to tag along with guests or other staff that are heading out somewhere. EVERYONE is very inclusive and respectful of each person's personality and lifestyle <3 It's stated above and I agree to trying to stay at least 2 months (not just bc it's a great time!) bc you'll be trained on front desk and housekeeping can be tiring during peak season

I couldn't have chosen a better place for my first WP experience! Erin and Joshua are great hosts and they made me feel like home sinde day 1. They were always available when needed. The hostel is amazing, they make a lot of great activities for both guests and volunteers that are so much fun. The location is very good, and there's many cool places to visit near the place. Also, the have bikes, both normal and electric, and also there's a bus stop right next to the hostel. I had so much fun and met a lot of amazing people, I hope I can go back someday!
