This was my first Worldpackers experience and I absolutely loved it. I am so grateful to Philip and Colette for welcoming me into their hostel. They are the sweetest people I have ever met and were both very kind and patient. The work was fair and each day there were tasks that needed to be done but volunteers were given the remainder of the day to do what we wanted. Overall an amazing experience and I would come back again!

It was a lovely hostel to work at. The work is fair, you have a lot of free time, the kitchen is huge and fully equipped. Portrush is a cute little city by the beach, so peacefull in autumn/ winter, but I heard it's superbusy in the summer though. I enjoyed a lot my time at Portrush Holiday Hostel and would definitely come back. Philip and Colette are awesome and good people. Wish you guys all the best!
