The city is amazing, the duties are very easy, only 4 hours per day. Nice atmosphere, nice place, I would do it again over and over again! Thank you Mike ! For the opportunity, I learned a lot!

Sorry for the delay. This volunteer was a great experience, I learnt how is the work in hostels. The tasks here were so easy and easily to learn. The shift was excellent, with only 4 hours to work. I recommend this place to do the volunteering if you want to learn all about Singapore. I really enjoyed it, I hope back soon.
My experience in The Happy Snail was awesome! i met a lot of people from around the world just chatting friendly with them was like a family, Mike make it easier because get you freedom to work so just for people who have initiative and energy to hang out with guest :)... (that's how i understand a hostel)
thank you Mike! in the future my hostel gonna have much experience from yours for sure!
I didn't work at happy snail but I did work at uptown hostel. The place is located in a great area next to the main attractions like Marina bay, Clark quay and MRT. Mike and CS are great guys, the helped me with everything and also CS made me try a lot of different local food. My co workers were so kind and they teached me with patience everything. The task are very simple and you'll have a lot of time to enjoy Singapore. I really recommend this place. I hope to come back soon 😄 thank you CS and Mike for the opportunity. See you soon!
