My two weeks were amazing! I loved working with Debbie, James, Kathrin and Rudi. It is the way of live I was looking for: a peaceful place in the country, a lot of conversations with a cup of tea, working outside to make the place better, and very very very very nice people. Thanks for everything!!! You are welcome to France :)

Four smiley faces is just not enough to describe Yavor!! He is awesome! Hard working, enthusiastic, and a garden guru.... he seriously transformed our garden in only a few days with exceptional landscaping and plant knowledge. Just brilliant. Over the month he also helped with DIY, cleaning, dog walking and loads more, always on the ball, and great company. He is quiet, lovely, strong, unbelievably intelligent, funny and it was just a pleasure to share our house with him. When we had a family bereavement and had to leave the country the same day Yav stepped in to housesit without a word of fuss, even extending his stay to help us out at that time. It was wonderful having such a great workawayer for that time that we trusted completely to look after the dog and the house and we will always be grateful to him. And on our return the house was immaculate and he had cooked us a Bulgarian feast! We would highly recommend Yav to any other host and we miss him! Thanks for everything Yav xx

I volunteered and stayed at the café for 1 week and had a really great experience. The café itself is an amazing idea - with locals coming to practice English in an informal way it's really a great way to meet people from Da Nang. And 3 hours a day is quite easy and enjoyable as well, especially the evening events such as karaoke or open mic night. I'm a terrible singer but the crowd is very supportive.. The accommodation is simple but sufficient. Not many western tourists come to Da Nang, but it has been my favorite experience thus far in Vietnam thanks to the experiences at the café and meeting friendly residents of Da Nang. Hats off to the organizers for creating a project like this - it's mutually beneficial to locals and volunteers.

I have just sadly said au revoir to my first lovely Workaway guest Myriam who has stayed with me for one month. She has been an absolutely wonderful guest and, most importantly, my dogs loved her. She has helped me with many basic cleaning jobs and tackled some household jobs which I have not done for quite some time eg cleaning and tidying cupboards and washing windows! She also cooked us some delicious meals. She really tried hard with her English and has grown in confidence with the language Myriam, you will be really missed and you are always welcome to come and visit again. Your next Workaway hosts are very lucky to have you!

Pauline es una persona excelente a quien le dejaríamos a cargo nuestro alojamiento sin dudas. No solo es trabajadora y muy responsable sino que ademas sentimos todo el tiempo que estaba dispuesta a ayudarnos. Todo estuvo muy limpio y en armonia durante su estadía, sin necesidad de tener que pedirle, valoramos mucho todo lo que aportó en nuestro proyecto. Con ella se puede compartir bellas charlas, divertirse o solo disfrutar del silencio y la naturaleza. Es una mujer sensible y respetuosa. Ademas fue muy agradable con los huéspedes y con nuestro pequeño hijo. Estamos muy contentos de haberla conocido y recomendamos absolutamente que quienes tengan la oportunidad de conocerla lo hagan! Que tengan un hermoso viaje y una gran vida! Cuando quieras serás bienvenida Abrazos! Anto

Many many thanks to Krista and Craig for sharing their truly beautiful home with me! It was my first workaway experience and it was more than I could've wished for! They're a very friendly, experienced and laid back couple and they gave me a very positive insight in community life with people you don't know but with whom you share same values. Respecting nature, eachother, sharing, kindness and living a life filled with meaningful and positive intentions. It definitely boosted my confidence in following my dreams. During my stay there wasn't a lot of work involved as described but this made it a very good transition from my busy city life to the off grid lifestyle (and gently growing some hard skin! Haha). The work consisted from weeding to cleaning out an old well and ploughing. Walking the dogs was part of it too but this actually felt more like relax time since the dogs are the sweetest! I felt very much at ease from the moment I got there and we shared nice food and conversations. The trips to the lake and into town were super relaxed and Krista's and the other volunteers yoga classes at the newly developed and peaceful yoga spot were just perfect. I will continue exploring and we'll definitely keep in touch for future sharing! Take care amigos!

We helped Udi in his house and garden for 11 days, including weeding, clearing out the old kitchen and cleaning, sanding, oiling and painting his cupboard. It was nice to be a part of it and to see progress being made with the new kitchen. Udi is an independent and quiet guy who we found to be lovely and quite helpful; making sure we had a fire going to keep us warm and he took us to town a few times which was helpful because paisiy is about 40 minutes from Gorna Oryahovitsa and 50 from Veliko Tărnovo and the bus only runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It's a beautiful and peaceful village and the drive there is scenic but quite remote and difficult to get to and from. Thanks Udi for making us comfortable and good luck with future volunteers! :D

I volunteered here for a week as an English teacher during April, and it was a truly great experience! All the staff - Diane, Phillipe, Alec, Francine and of course the lovely dog Gwando, were so accommodating and helpful. They will truly make you feel part of the team, and will go above and beyond to show you Belgium; Alec gave us a tour around Brussels which was lovely. You eat meals and talk together, so there's never a dull moment. The actual teaching was challenging, but rewarding. Diane has plenty of teaching materials that she will let you use, but is also happy to let you use your own materials. You will be immersed in the deep end, which will be initially difficult, but once you find your flow it is so much fun, and you will also learn a lot from the students! Also, you will get the chance to make new friends - all in all, a truly memorable and rewarding experience. The place itself is beautiful, with lovely grounds and in a stunning area. Note, there is not hot running water in the rooms (but the showers have hot water), and it is likely you will share a bathroom with the students, so this may not be convenient for a longer stay. However, I had an excellent time and would love to do it again!

I loved my time with Rani and the gang! Stayed for 9 days surrounded by dogs and good energy! There was always lots to do and plenty of stories to be told! Hoping to come back to India at the start of the season later this year and I will definitely be coming to visit and help again. Need to practice my poster ninja skills! Sending good vibes in the meantime! X

I couldn't have imagined better hosts than Tess, Bea and Chris. They live surrounded by nature, sheeps and rivers and I enjoyed every morning hearing the baaing and the singing of the birds. When I opend the door of the cabin a wondeful view welcomed me. While I spent nearly two weeks on their little farm, it neither was a problem for me to wash up with cold rainwater nor to pee outside - I rather enjoyed it! Their friends are very kindly, they attended us twice. All tasks were well explained and I could really enjoy working in the garden, in the house and playing with Tess... :) Their lifestyle is amazing and I consider myself to live like they do. It was such a great experience that I will definitly come back one day! Thank you very much!!! Good luck with all your projects in the future.

Hey, I´ve got a really enjoyable stay in Helette. Jane and Antony are always trying to give you a day off, if its possible, and try give you some freetime at each day. They welcome you very well and are fair enough to each of the workawayers. I was just about 3 days alone, normaly they´re hosting other workers too. The weather was most times good in april, warm and not rainy. If there are no groups, there is some cleaning to do, or garden work. When tey´ve got a group, you´re helping prepairing meals and tidy up after. Most times its no heavy work and Jane and Tony are next to you, to give you advices. In general I can recommend this host. Thank you for the nice stay of three weeks in Helette. Meike

Darren, Kami and Dodgem were with us for 11 days and we wish they could have stayed longer. They are really hard working, polite, great company and appreciative. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were always willing to lend a hand in everything we were doing in the house or outside. Between them, they cleaned and treated our Glamping Lodges ready for the start of the season, helped with stone wall building (which involved a lot of stone moving) and helped in the garden. Dodgem is a great supervisor and kept cracking the whip all day long (he is also a very polite and well behaved dog). We wish our Trusty trio all the best for their trip and upcoming Workaways and hope to see them again in the future.

KONRAD Konrad joined us during a time of intense outdoor work under less than comfortable conditions - like landscaping when the surface of the ground was frozen. He was very dedicated to the projects at hand and was an absolute pleasure to be with. In addition to many other things, he was a central figure in the restoration of the chateau's original well hauling by the bucket, from the depths of the 9 meter well, 20 wheelbarrow loads of black muddy mud and depositing it in a place hopefully not to be found. He planted hedges, did stone work building an outside shower, helped build forms, mix, and pour cement among other things. I was astounded when I found out his age and had assumed by all indicators he was at least 5 years older. In short, Konrad is a great young man and I would highly recommend him to any host so fortunate as to have the opportunity to have him. I am very late in writing Konrad's feedback and for that I must apologies. Konrad! - We hope to see you again as guest or workawayer!

Thank you Trevor & Courtney for all your help. A great couple who were able to help out with many different projects here on the farm. Spring is always a busy time as everything starts "growing" and they were happy to work in the garden, the fields and of course with all the animals. I wish you both a great journey through Europe this Summer. Enjoy! All the best from us all. :)

Soniya , Andrew and children where such a great family to be around . It was amazing to see Andrew design and implement the tree house in 4 days . Soniya was such a peaceful soul and she was always helping out . Everyone including children started the day at 6 30 am to bear the heat and get the work completed on time . We would love to have them back and stay with us again if it works for their schedule .

What a wonderful experience! The Work - making stud walls, fitting insulation, electric wiring, plastering, fitting doors, sanding, make / fit kitchen cupboard doors, tiling bathroom, fitting sink support, garden paving and design /building decking and surrounding bar/rail - deck area 6.5 x 10.5metres ( thoroughly enjoyed seeing this completed ). I also did some cooking - gado gado and " curried pork fillet w creamy mustard sauce ( I got them addicted to this.... it's become a weekly "fix" of oral injection ). The Village - Issigeac, which will now forever be refered to by "moi",as Nikkijac. Historical, peaceful and safe. A walk around the village is very calming and soothing. The Accommodation - 5 smiles. Your own bathroom and very comfy, cosy bedroom a few feet away. The entire home oozes character, charm and has a very welcoming vibe - due to my fabulous hosts. The Hosts - Nikki. Lovely, caring, thoughtful person always ensuring that I had all I needed and.. the food... yum yum yum!!!... Bloody unbelievably off the scale!!! This sheila knows how to cook. Nikki, " eye no complaaaain" The Hosts - Jac ( Jacquee, my apprentice ). I could not have wished for a more willing and enthusiastic "gopher". His dedication to learning is admirable. At meal times he always ensured my glass was, never half full. Jac " allez.. maintenent ". The Hosts - Louis. The best seven year old I have ever met. He would actually say good morning and asked to help on numerous occasions. He is pleasant, polite and rather amusing a credit to his great parents. Louis " Gary my what.....? " The Hosts - Gigi. Cute, smart and a lot of energy. Good dog Gigi " down bitch ". This has been the best three months of my overseas jaunt. I know I have made friends for life and leaving was so difficult and emotional. Thank you, thank you.. and.. thank you. Hope to come back, maybe for the wedding.. or sooner. Luvvies and huggies GML *** Rummikubs - Let the games begin. " Naaaa.. naa naa naa naa.. naa naa na naa.. naa naa naa na naaa... na na na na Wilson Picket Yes Jacquee we know...

 Feedback is an essential part of how Workaway works. We take negative feedback very seriously and it is a way we can oversee if the Workaway philosophy is being abused in any way.

If bad feedback is left by either a workawayer or a host, we will publish the negative feedback smiley and keep the comments for our records. We do this to avoid “revenge” feedbacks and then having a situation which is often subjective and personal to each individual case.

Workawayers can contact each other directly to privately discuss workaway experiences (Both positive and negative)

If a host or workawayer receives more than 2 independent negative feedbacks we remove them from the site.
