Aiden was definitely one of the best volunteers we ever had. He always had an idea to add to the program - a game, an activity or simply a suggestions to make things better! His proactiveness has been a plus for our hostel. Thank you Aiden, we miss you a lot and come back soon to visit us!

This experience was the best I've ever had at a hostel. It was great learning to cook various dishes for the guest and you don't need to go far to enjoy the city. Vienna is a jewel and this hostel is it's crown, they're perfect for one another.

Aiden is a very pro-active person! He always comes up with new and great ideas for improvement. He definitely has a lot of work experience which is a great asset, but he's also social with the team and with the guests. He's reliable and gets the work done. Would definitely recommend!

Lovely experience at the ESN Campsite. The festival isn't far away and you'll get plenty of time to party! You'll get days at a time to go into the city to explore. Thanks again Nicki!

Lovely place to work, Anja is great to hang with, more so Kali, her peaceful dog. The hrs are very accommodating , quite easy to get around and see the city daily. Everything is around the corner, except the city center, yet it's easily and rapidly reached.

Answering questions from other travelers

Hi, I'm an aspiring polyglot from Orange County California. I spend my time learning languages and exploring new environments from which to draw inspiration for my own fashion projects. At the moment, I'm also focusing on learning more about owning and operating a hostel and managing a small business. I want to get to know the variety of ways to run i one, from marketing to staffing. Along the way, I've enjoy picking up new recipes and cooking with different ingredients. I'm a fan of cocktails too, so running into a local spirit is an opportunity I never miss. Above all, I really enjoy challenging myself financially and have accumulated many tricks to save that money & am always willing to share them. I travel with a 6 kilo in a 20 Liter backpack that always has room for more. Minimalist, everything is up for reduction, from electronics to clothing. Feel free to ask me anything! If you have any questions about minimalism while traveling, tight budgeting, cheap & healthy recipes, and even workouts, don't hesitate to contact me! Insta: Aiden Espada or Sans.Boussole
