I had the most pleasant surprise with my experience here in Dickson Central!
First of all, Canberra turned out to be a very amazing city with incredible surroundings and turism: Alan (one of the owners and an awesome guy) took me and other volunteers for hiking, barbecues etc... priceless moments.
The volunteering is very easy and the resident managers help you through everyday.
Breakfast is very good also! Such nice people volunteering there with me: I made a lot of friends!
I would definetely reccomend people to visit Canberra and Dickson Central when coming to Australia.
Great place to work! The hostel is in a nice, easy to access area in Canberra. The daily tasks are quick to finish and nice to do with the volunteers team. The owners, Joseph and Allan, are very friendly and always willing to help with your doubts. They also offer some day trips for the volunteers, for example, we went with Allan to a reserve to see koalas 🐨!
I highly recommend this place to get to know Canberra better, it has a lot to offer and to learn about!
Great place to start your Worldpackers experience! The owners are friendly and helpful! They makes you fell like at home. The job is pretty easy and you got plenty of time to do your stuff. We also had a awesome barbecue day and hiking with Allan, one of the owners. Just amazing! I strongly recommend this place and Canberra!
