My experience at the hostel was amazing, Cheryl and Rayson are the kindest bosses ever, the work is super simple, only for 4/5 hrs a day, and the hostel is awesome. I felt like home during these 2 weeks i spent there, would definetly recommend it to someone that is looking for a chill place and warming environment!!

The guest house is great! Rayson and Cheryl truly put their trust in you to take care of the hostel and let you do it in your own way. While you definitely have responsibilities to take care of during your shift, it doesn't feel like you're stuck at a job because you can also spend a lot of your work time interacting with the guests and making sure they're comfortable. The location is excellent right near the main street of Georgetown so you can walk anywhere and there is still plenty of time to see and do the things you want when you are not working. Best of luck to them in the future!

Working at the guest house was a great experience! Rayson and Cheryl totally give you their trust on you to work there. You can learn a lot about how to manage a hostel. You are together with other volunteers and at the same time you can meet and hang out with other guests. Georgetown it's also a cool place to stay and explore. I totally recommend it! It was awesome!

A experiência trabalhando no hostel foi incrível! Passei duas semanas lá, e se eu pudesse ficaria mais! Rayson e Cheryl são os melhores anfitriões que eu já tive, super simpáticos, ensinam tudo do trabalho com muita paciência, e o trabalho é super tranquilo, zero sobrecarregado. O hostel é um ambiente super agradável, só ouvi comentários bons dos hóspedes e outros voluntários. Vou voltar algum dia com certeza! <3

Os staff foram bem legais e atenciosos, ajudavam com o que precisavamos e passaram dicas do que fazer e onde ir. Trabalho é de 6hr com duas folgas na semana. Os donos são bem organizados quanto ao trabalho, as horas e a folga são passadas bem certinho. Eu trabalhei durante a manhã e a tarde, ajudando no café da manhã e check in e check out. Como os donos não estão sempre lá, você fica com uma grande responsabilidade no caixa. No geral, a preocupação deles é de deixar os guests se sentirem muito bem. Recomendo, dá pra trabalhar e conhecer uma boa parte da ilha :)
