What our host community is saying


I really like the platform and the people are really open minded and friendly :) Its a really nice opportunity to combine meeting new people, getting to know different cultures and to work together on a project.


Worldpackers is an amazing platform. Until now we hosted only amazing people who were ready to help us and to give us time and energy. Grateful for your community and your time.


Its a social and safe way to have help in and around the house. It minimises cultural and age gaps.


So far, the best work exchange program we have found. Fairly easy to use and better quality volunteers than others we have tried.


Having tried other volunteer hosting sites, Worldpackers is obviously the most popular with volunteers and the most helpful to hosts.


Perfect support for hosts. Super friendly, fast and reliable!
