I have worked at the Marylin Mansion for a month. It was my first experience as a workaway, and what an amazing experience it was ! I want to thank Ashvin, Jenny, Mey, Alex, Lucas and Selven for the warm welcome and for going out of their way to make me feel good and helping me in anything I needed. The work is simple, the accommodation is fair and the breakfast is superb. The guesthouse itself is beautiful and elegant, and its only 15 mins bus ride from the city center. I had a great time there and already looking forward to return there. Highly recommended !
I had an amazing experience there , everybody was super nice and kind , Ashvin and Michele thank u for everything, I met very cool people there also the other packers. The work is very easy, you have to work 2-3 day for week and is very close to downtown. Definitely i would love go back .
It was my first trip as a worldpacker and it was amazing. The chores were very simple and the hostel was very comfortable, even in a shared room. I know wonderful people there and I could do tourism all through the month. I am very grateful to the staff at Marilyn Mansion for giving me this opportunity. It was Fantastic! Certainly, I will repeat the worldpacker experience on my next holidays in a new place. Sláinte!
Located in a beautiful, quaint area of Dublin city, MM provides a wonderful opportunity to explore Dublin and all that makes her one of the greatest cities in the world. The work itself was straightforward and not all too time consuming. I felt that I was trained sufficiently. Sometimes, however, the experience/work/guesthouse felt disorganized and left something to be desired. Communication within the staff felt hit or miss. All in all, though, I am thankful for this experience.
I had a nice experience at Marilyn Mansion during the 3 weeks I stayed there.
The job wasn't hard, and accommodations are very simple, but comfortable. The hotel's location is great - I always felt safe in the neighbourhood, and had no problem walking to the city center. Staff is mostly nice and fun.
Job training should've been more complete, though, and management could've participated more on the first days.
Out of all my work exchange experiences, Marylin Mansion was my absolute favorite! I felt so welcome and at home- Ashvin and the owners are awesome, Ginara is so much fun, and the overall atmosphere is really great. The work is simple and everything you get in exchange is so worth it. Thank you so much MM family- I will truly miss all of you! ❤
