I very enjoyed my first experience with Worldpackers. Teresa is an amazing host, she explains everything clearly and even when I had some problems she was eager to say what I do wrong. I had a lot of free time to enjoy Norway, Tromsø is a big city and there's lots of nature nearby.

I really enjoyed my stay in Tromsø and definitely recommend it for everyone wanting to explore the area. Teresa is a great host, super nice and easy to talk to! The work is exactly as described, doesn't take a lot of time and the schedule is super flexible, which is great if you are on the hunt for good weather. There is a lot of solo travelers staying in the hostel, but most of them don't stay very long. In Tromsø itself it's not that easy to meet people, so I spent a lot of time by myself, which I didn't mind. I loved the calm vibe of the city and went on amazing hikes and tours :)

Being in Tromsø and helping out at the hostel was a really comfortable and fun experience. First of all you have your own room which is super nice. The work is super manageable and easy to do. Teresa communicates the tasks well and is really easy to talk to and flexible about your shifts. Tromsø is a lively city with a lot of cafes and bars Thanks for letting me stay here and being so flexible with my health issues I had in between. :)

I really enjoyed may stay at the hostel! Teresa is a very nice host and the communication was always very good. The work is simple and the hours were pretty flexible in my case (we were enough volunteers and it was not peak season). I even had my own room, which i really enjoyed :) Thank you Teresa for the nice stay!

I really enjoyed my stay at Tromsø the hostel. Teresa is super nice, and I always enjoyed talking to her. She explained all the tasks to me in the beginning, and gave some advice on what you can do in Tromsø, which was really helpful. The tasks were clearly defined, not too much, and like written in the description only took 2, maybe 3 hours. If you have any questions, you can always ask Teresa, so you don't need to worry. I can really recommend staying at Tromsø the hostel to anyone. :)
