The experience in the host at the host was great, they are super welcoming with volunteers and receive a lot of Brazilians, they had a welcome party for me! Mario our first boss was super nice, and Denny is a super fun guy and I learned a lot from both of them and from my colleagues, the location is great! the city is cold but it was a very nice experience

This was my first WorldPackers experience, and I absolutely loved my time at NapYork! I was initially planning to stay only for a month but ended up extending my stay for another month. Some highlights: 1. Amazing Location! It's next to affluent neighborhoods like Russian Hill, Marina, Pacific Heights, etc., has Whole Foods just a 3-minute walk away, and is in walking distance to Japantown & Chinatown, 2. Amazing people! The manager and other volunteers were very fun to hang out with and chill, so it felt like a family, 3. $500 allowance every 2 weeks, 4. Work is easy & chill. Thanks NapYork!

My experience was excellent! The hostel is in a good location for seeing the sights, I was able to study at City College of the host and it was free. If the idea is to travel and get to know the city of Sf, this is a good place. They paid me 200 dollars every 15 days and with this amount I was able to eat and visit the points of interest. My suggestion is to ask in your interview about tasks, schedules and payment before boarding.

I am very grateful to have had this amazing experience. In addition to the excellent location in NYC, the facilities are great, the leadership and co-workers are also amazing, I really felt at home. We have free days to enjoy the city and the work is easy and fun. I definitely recommend it to all volunteers! ❤️

I'm really thankful to all the host team who received me so well and made me feel so welcome. Besides a nice place to stay, I also made friends and was able to collaborate with the business. The business, by the way, is a very cool idea that is being set up as a start up. If you are a responsible person, your time with them will certainly be great, and, if it's within your travel/career plans, there can even be space to continue in the team and grow with them. I definitely recommend this place.
