I loved staying in the hostel! It was such an amazing experience and even better than I expected it. Its located on the perfect spot in the city, everything in the centre is within walkable distance and the bar itself is lovley. The staff was probably the best part about staying in the hostel, they were all very very friendly and the atmosphere was always warm and welcoming <3 About usage of facilities and the kitchen; you can use it at almost any given time.Everything else was excatly how it was described on the worldpackers page. I would recommend staying there to anyone :))

I had a great time the hostel, the staff is very nice and you meet people from everywhere. The hostel is well located in the city and the work required is simple. The room can be improve (but I guess it s also depends with who you are in the room ) and also we only spend a short time in the bedroom so it is OK. If you want to party and meet people, go !

I had a really great experience, mostly because i met so many lovley people.But the communication with isabella isnt great, and thers no one that takes care or really welcomes the volonteers.You will have to work without any real training.The planning wasnt great since it sometimes was over staffed and sometimes very under staffed, so i feel bad for the part time workers, they dont get enough credit for the work they have to do.And a lot of things changed in the application since i arrived, i was promised not to have to do certain things and also promised certain things that later changed. x

My time there was amazing! I really enjoyed it. I made some great friends! I did have some communication problems regarding my arrival and departure date tho. The job itself was quite good. You are behind the bar and in the kitchen and some basic cleaning in that area. The job can be really fun on one hand, but it can also be tiring. All in all, I really recommend this volunteer position. I already miss everything and everyone and want to go back every single day since I left.

The hostel was a very interesting experience. You might have a difficult first week, but once you start meeting and connecting with the people around you, including volunteers and employees, you’ll have a hard time leaving. Work hours are respected and you get what it’s advertised. The work is not difficult if you’re not a lazy person :). It’s also a great place to have fun as there’s a party/event on every night. My friend and I have met wonderful people which I think is all that matters to have a great time. Rooms can be improved, but it also depends on the volunteers to keep them clean.
