I really had fun in Mike's Hostel, the atmosphere was perfect and I met a lot of people. The place is near Chinatown and it's possible to get to the center by walk. At the hostel, the duties are easy and you will have time to visit the city. I totally recommend the experience.

I had a great experience working in Happy Snail Hostel. The hostel is in good conditions and it is easy to clean. I got to know many guests and I had an incredible time with them in Singapore. Also Mike is very nice and he really cares about the hostel.
I truly recommend this work exchange for at least two weeks.

It was a wonderful experience in Happy Snail Hostel. I really enjoyed having the responsibility to manage the small hostel in the beautiful and perfect Singapur. All the guests were really nice, the tasks easy and Jimmy a very nice "boss". Thank you for everything.

happy snail is a small and cute hostel in Singapore. Working there, especially with Mike makes a lot of fun. Also there is enough time to explore Singapore or to go to the beach during the day. I'll be back, for sure!

Nice place to rest from traveling! The hostel is nice and the work is easy and leaves you enough time to explore Singapore! But you are pretty much on your own, probably the only downside of this experience.
