This was my first Worldpackers trip, and it was a great experience. The work was very reasonable, and in the time off I was able to borrow a bike, explore the town, or go to a national park, etc. I liked the nightly family style meals as well. Thanks Joann and Jeff!!

This was my first Worldpackers/hostel experience, and it was perfect for that. JoAnn and Jeff were so welcoming to and often patient with me as I adjusted to the new environment. The work was clearly outlined, and they were very trusting with the volunteers to do it without very much micromanaging. Every night there was a family style dinner with all the volunteers which encouraged interaction. The landscape and local attractions were stunning. I absolutely loved staying here and would recommend it to anyone.

This was a great place to stay and the host makes you feel welcome and part of the family. So many places to visit that aren’t far from the hostel. Plenty of time outside of the shifts to explore.

It was an awesome experience! I really loved all the staff from TCBH, they were very respectful, helpful and friendly. The owners (JoAnn and Jeff) are very nice, they understand you and also take you for some visits. The tasks are honest and match with the description. The city of Kanab is small, but it is very cozy and safe. After the tasks you have free time to do what you want, so you can go hiking, read a book etc. I do recommend the hostel, I am sure everybody will like it.
