James H, England
As someone who’s spent more than five years travelling and volunteering at hostels around the world, I can honestly say that Hosteleer has been a game changer for me. I love the fact that I can get a realistic idea of what a hostel and job will be like before I get to my destination, and it eliminates the need to reach out individually to hostels or knock on doors around town, so it’s never been simpler to find a place to work. There’s no better way to get to know a place intimately than volunteering, and I’ve had incredibly unique travel experiences that wouldn’t have been possible without Hosteleer.
