This was my first volunteering experience and I can say that it was a very good experience.I learned a lot of about human relationship and communication. Very nice cool place in Old Town, Bangkok (20 min walk to Khaosan Road). Shifts and tasks ... not hard (time to yourself). Effie, Book, Ae, Soda and everyone ... thank you soo much. Absolutely I recommend.

I personally had an awesome experience, It was my first solo travel experience and the hostel was the perfect place for me. Effie, Soda, Book, Alan, Ae and even P'Tan all treated me like family. It was truly home away from home. I wish nothing but the best volunteers from around the world to collaborate with Effie and her team to make the hostel and the new bar even better. I met so many great people from around the world that hopefully I will keep in contact with for the rest of my life. And I had so many unique local experiences and relationships which was just great too! ⭐️

It has been a very good experience, thanks to Book, Effie, Ei (I don't know how to write your name haha), and all the staff, for this month in the hostel. I recommend the experience 100%

Volunteering at the hostel & Bike is perfect if you need to stay or have a long break in a vibrant city such as Bangkok. You will be very well welcomed in this local and familial hostel. It is perfect to practice your English and learn more about Thai culture. The tasks are quite easy and you'll have plenty of time to explore. Effie and Book are really flexible in terms of days off. They are also keen to organise group activities for you and the others volunteers. Thank you girls!

This was my first volunteer experience, and I felt I was lucky enough to find a place where I was warmly welcomed. I had a great time with the staff and the guests. I learned a lot about customer service and professional communication. I met a lot of international people and made good friends. Thank you so much, Effie, Book Aye, Soda, and Pita. I am going to miss you all and the good memories.
