My experience in Fu House was great! I stayed there for two weeks and I could visit the city and around easily. Red is an easy going person and very helpful, he’s not all the time in the hostel but whenever he is the hostel has a good atmosphere. Also I loved the cat, not that much the snake hahaha. You have to work 6 hours in the reception but most of the time you can read or write by your own because it’s not busy all the time. The only problem I found it’s that Bangkok it’s such a big city that it takes a lot of time to move around. Anyway, you can do it!

Sara was incredibly hardworking, sociable and self motivated. Even when her shifts were over she was always wanting to help out even more and make sure everyone was happy. Sara added something special to our family and was greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend her as a volunteer and look forward to seeing her in the future

I had a great experience in Ringo's Foyer. I worked there for three weeks and that was enough to fall in love with the city and specially with the guesthouse. The ambience in the hostel is amazing, you can spend the day without going out and you'll never get bored. The working hours are easy and Howard is a great host, you really feel like home. I will definitely recommend this hostel as a traveller and also as a working exchange.

I spent one week in Da Rifi Hostel with my friend Carlos. We didn't have the chance to meet Dyana because she left to work the next day we arrived to another city. However, we had a great week with Yenny, she was very nice to us. We were able to paint the front yard with the means they gave us, but we didn't find much else to do. They told us that other volunteers usually go to schools to talk to children but we preferred to work in the hostel. We learnt how Indonesian people live and we don't regret this experience lived!
