My stay at the hostel has been amazing! The staff is super welcoming and nice, the work is fun, social and not overwhelming at all. The hours are always respected and the hostel environment is great. You also get a lot in return for the work that you do, and I have felt appreaciated the whole time. The city is cool and has a lot to offer, and there are a lot of opportunities for daytrips from the hostel. I am definetely coming back one day. Thank you for this experience, I wish you all the best!

I spent two weeks working here at the hostel and it was a great experience. I had been backpacking for a week and a half straight before coming to the hostel so I was ready to have a set location for a while. The work was fun even when it got busy and the employees were happy to assist whenever I needed something. The hostel itself was a great environment to be in and I enjoyed the activities they put on. Huge thanks to Elena for working with me on scheduling conflicts. Overall it was an awesome first experience working in a hostel and I highly recommend it to anyone interested!

I had the best time working at this hostel!! :) The staff were so wonderful and accommodating. I always had fun during my shifts, which were pretty easy helping with the bar! The breakfast was great and there's so much to see in the city. I definitely want to go back and visit, two weeks went by way too fast. xxx
