I arrived at The Spoon and the Star Hostel and I immediately felt very welcome. It's like being in a big busy house and everyone is friendly and helpful. There is a WhatsApp chat channel that helps you all to communicate and know what's happening if you need anything. It's great to stay connected on this channel if you go exploring somewhere on your days off you can share pics and fun stuff. Rory and Hanna the owners are very helpful and always there for you if you need.

Spoon and The Stars is like a family! I really recommended this place! I enjoyed a lot :) And is a good opportunity to improve your English.

The duties are easy and the shifts are flexible. The building is on very well conditions and the decoration is so cute. There is a staff’s room and all the food are included.

Drogheda is a little town and the hostel is super close to the center.

Thanks!!!

The experience was good, cause I think that all the experiences in our lifes are useful. The hostel is a cozy place and we feel like home there, Rory and Hanna and very friendly and easy going people. The hours and days off are respected and negociable, and we also have food included.
The city however is quite calm and there isn´t so many thing to do there, to visit another cities we always have to go to Dublin, and from there take another bus, what make us spend lot of money.

This was my first experience, and I honestly could not have asked for a better place or better people to spend it with. From the first day it felt like home, everyone who works there are so kind and welcoming, it was most definitely a family. The work and hours are fair, and you have the opportunity to do a little bit of everything. This experience allowed me to gain skills in reception, cleaning, cooking, maintenance and in navigating the online programs.
The city is wonderfully located with a bus station for exploring bigger cities is just down the road. Thank you & Miss you all SO MUCH!
