Walking into this hostel is like receiving a warm hug. The vibes are calm yet fun, but it's the staff who really make the place what it is. If you want to gain a second family then look no further, I got to live and work amongst some of the most genuine people who welcomed and included me the second I walked through the door. This was a wonderful first work-trade experience!

This trip was a dream. The neighborhood, locals, and staff were all so welcoming. The tasks were communicated perfectly and manageable to do. This place and Jimbo the cat will forever have a special place in my heart.

Ben and I had a wonderful time at the hostel- everyone was so welcoming and kind, and we learned a lot about hostel life. We will miss the hostel team and the other work traders we met there so much! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone interested!
