This was my first experience with worldpackers and I think it couldn't be better. The hostel is lovely and the owner is the best, he is always there for help and teach you. The assignments and the work are not difficult. Sometimes it could be hard because there is a lot to do, but you are not alone. The team and the town are small so be ready to meet everyone!
I really aprecciate the time which I spent there and I hope to be back soon, even like a friend :)
Thank you so much HostelMarburg team!
