Learning & Fun

Brazil

Alias Hostel was my first worldpackers experience. Unfortunately, for personal issues, I had to leave earlier. I've spent only two weeks there, but I could learn a lot. Antwerp is not a really tourist city, I would say it's a place to recharge your batteries if you're in a long journey. The tasks are easy and the staff explain everything really well, you just need to be aware that are night shifts from 8pm to 6am, usually really calm shifts.

Staying at Alias was a lovely experience, the tasks are not difficult at all and you get a lot of free days to go out and visit other cities. Everyone was so nice with us and always solving our doubts, thank you for everything, I definitely recommned it!

Volunteering in Alias didn't feel like work, it felt like being home! The tasks very quite easy, the staff who work there were super nice, helpful, sweet, and caring, I got to hang out with other volunteers as well, and everything you need is available there: kitchen, looots of fruit, coffee, tea, etc. Volunteers get a private room, so you can have your privacy, but also hang out with other volunteers and guests in the common area. On our arrival, we got a very detail training from Jens, who was very patient and understanding and even gave us printed notes. A very nice experience, great peopl!

I had the best time at Alias! The permanent staff are so kind and supportive, and I made friends for life in the other volunteers. The work isn’t really difficult, you can read in other reviews,and you really learn a lot. You do need to have some independence and be able to make sensible decisions, but the managers are always only a phone call away if you need them. The cleaning staff are also really kind, so make sure you chat to them. They have interesting stories to tell! You’ll get plenty of free time to explore the city, travel to other cities, or to just chill. There’s free cake too!
