Workaway Site Update - Navigation Guide for Hosts

Howdy hosts! During the past couple of weeks while we were all stuck in quarantine, we have been giving the Workaway website a bit of a makeover to help hosts and workawayers navigate through the site more easily. Here's a walk through of our latest updates!

What's new with my host account?

This is probably the most important part of the site to get used to, as these are functions you will regularly use to contact workawayers and update your listing!

Other General Information for Workawayers & Hosts


​​​​​​​Under the sidebar you will find all the information you'll need, from how Workaway works for travellers and hosts, to community stories and videos, as well as how we (including you!) are giving back through this platform. 

And there we have it! While a couple of things may be looking a bit different, all of the essential functions are still here and hopefully even more accessible. 
While you are busy accomodating workawayers, we'll keep on working and updating to improve different parts of our site - if you have any comments or suggestions please do get in touch via our helpdesk and let us know too :)

If you are WORKAWAYER, you can check out our site updates here.

Thanks for tuning in!
