    One of the reasons you might be deciding to backpack is to save money, but it's easy to end up with only $10 in your pocket which can ruin the whole trip. To ensure your 6-month trip doesn't end in 1 week, you can find volunteer work in exchange for a bed or even extra money.

    Whether you’re taking a gap year, or a 6-month break to travel the world, you can still find ways to give back to the community. You can easily find volunteer opportunities in over 100 countries, including budget-friendly accommodations offered by locals who appreciate your help.

    Travelling solo can be both exciting and nerve wrecking as you must care for yourself while visiting places where you don’t know anyone! Worldpackers connects over 500,000 travelers and hosts worldwide, so you can work in exchange for accommodation and live with the locals!

    Does your son or daughter want to volunteer? Let them travel the world and learn about 100s of cultures while they volunteer and help others less fortunate than them.

    Volunteering in your home country or abroad is a great way to spend your holidays. Whether you are on a 5-day or 10-day break, you can choose the period you wish to volunteer which will then display a list of places you can visit to work for a good cause.

    If you're a budget-conscious traveler looking for volunteering jobs, you can use this tool to save some money on accommodation and meet fellow volunteers. It provides you with work from barns, hostels, NGOs, social projects, schools, and others, in exchange for accommodation in over 100 countries.

    WorldPackers really changed my life. I had the best experiences through them. There’s a lot of amazing hosts and thanks to the reviews, I know what I’m getting myself into. I haven’t had a bad experience and will continue to keep using the service. The App is just great to have instead of constantly logging back in through the browser and it’s easy to navigate.

    App has good options for opportunities and I was actually able to volunteer and had a wonderful experience. The three stars are bc the app won't allow me to read more than the one review on the main page. This wasn't an issue before, perhaps updates have created a glitch. I'd like to read more than one review when they're available.

    I don't get notified of new messages. Also when I am reviewing conversations, I sometimes have to refresh more than once to see what the other party wrote. the last thing I've noticed so far, when a host recommends dates, I cannot recommend my own dates.

    Worldpackers opens doors. This app makes traveling so easy. It is one of the best and most user friendly programs that I have found. And I searched quite a bit! I have enjoyed using it very much. Now go out there and do your thing!

  • Some issues that needs to be fixed for the app Jun 2, 2021

    By teimvvn
    I was really excited to find this program, and so I went ahead and paid the membership fee. After using it for a few hours I noticed a few issues that could be fixed for UI. For example, when you open a position and you read under activities, it gets cut off in the bottom. I also noticed when I was inputting my background info the text would run off to the side and get cut off as well. I may consider just using the website instead but so far it’s been fine.

    A few bugs. For example.. My host approved me but he approved wrong dates. We have agreed to postpone our interaction but there is no more cancel options. I can not get work before u remove my stay.
  • Loved it ! Feb 17, 2018

    By JWKalltheway
    It does make you pay 50$ but that’s nothing in exchange for what it offers you! I bought the full version and now I’m doing what I love full time !

    By Maxi Ariel
    The app its excellent. You can use a lot of filters to search the trip you want. Its really easy to use. Then if the hosters write you back or not is another story, but the funcionality of the app is wonderfull.

    There's a delay at messages on the chat. Sometimes I need to send another message to see the answer to my last question for the host.
  • Sep 5, 2021

    By Verónica Trujillo
    My first time volunteering, the host didn't ask for a fee, but now I don't understand why most of the hosts ask for money to the volunteers, no chances to take because it is supposed that we are volunteers, we work to receive sth, but they are adding money🤷🏽‍♀️ so? You as an organization must review this.
  • This service is a scam Apr 15, 2021

    By LotusNetter
    Worldpackers collects $50 from travelers by selling a false expectation that people can get free stays in exchange of volunteer “work” which they pitch in a way that doesn’t sound like work. We were a host on the platform and the first 5 travelers who came really had no interest whatsoever in working at all. The first traveler wanted to tour the island the second day of work, the second traveler never showed up, the third one ended up upgrading to a paid room once they understood there was volunteer work involved otherwise and the fourth went on vacation after two days of volunteering. Don’t waste your $50 for the false hope they sell you. If you’re truly interested in volunteer work, all the NGOs including our our NGO have websites that advertise for volunteer positions. You can Google and you will find them at no cost to you.
  • Pay to be “Verified “ Apr 28, 2019

    By sn-sgu
    I’m tired of traveling app like this that tout Verification by payment of a subscription or fees. That’s only verifying I’m paying for membership services not because I or anyone else is a safe trustworthy person! Where are the requirements for background checks? Personal references? Of both parties. Also, if I can only find one or two opportunities (with no guarantees I’ll get either host spot) and have no plans on making this a yearly lifestyle why should I pay $50 for it?!!! Ridiculous! App doesn’t state membership required to apply for position!

    I found a few cool sounding opportunities but read the reviews and found 1 star reviews that detailed being manipulated or abused by their host. I’m confused why those listings are still allowed to be up and now suspicious of the safety of any of the ones on the app since it seems like there is a carelessness towards potential travelers by not removing unsafe situations or screening hosts. edit: now with the latest updates the app won’t even load

    Terrible app... they take your money and promise you to get opportunities... unfortunately, most hosts don't respond and ignore your messages, otherwise, they decline.. choose travelers depend on nationality and race! The administration doesn't response... bunch of stealers!
  • Okay app but some bugs Jul 31, 2021

    By minkee101
    The app itself holds all the information but it’s not very device friendly on my opinion. It’s hard to narrow down opinions and then has gotten buggy as well, but other that that it’s good for the little that it offers and keeping in touch with the other members. Not good for searching opportunities at all in my opinion
  • Couldn’t signup :( Oct 17, 2019

    By Tim77277
    I downloaded the app for the first time today. Unfortunately I was not able to signup with Facebook. When I tried to use email signup, I got stuck at giving my birth date. The datePicker somehow shows blank and I was not able to pick my birth date on the picker so I couldn’t complete the signup process. What’s good about this app if user can’t signup and use it? :(

    A really good app to go around the world while working a little and vacationing a little. Also, this app does help you a lot at the beginning, during and at the end of your trip. Thus making it trustworthy.

    i have been using this app last year,so far good but sometimes we got late confirm from the host,now instald again but i saw still very expensive as a member of worldbackpackers it should be get more disct because one year not full using time to volunteering this unillegal in everycountry, we only using tourist permit, if want to stay longer must pay visa again and that was really expensive another web only $15 for one year. i like this app is really working i just only problem with the price

    the search function only works when you access the webpage, on the app it never worked for me. Like when you enter a city or region to look for opportunities, you type and it goes back to the homepage on the app, not displaying the results, otherwise the app is really good, but works better on the browser for some functions. But I already had many awesome experiences, totally worth the fee because you save more than that when working for accomodation!
  • Feb 5, 2019

    Good app but there is a simple thing missing which is you have no idea when the add was posted or if its still available. Like if you see a place you want to stay and work how do you know how old the add is? Please put in dates when there posted.. Just makes things so much easier. Ps I clicked on some pages showing experience.. Didn't see anything in regards to dates.. Like the fes hostel In Morocco as an example.. I've no idea from that add when they need you and when is the end..

    Really needs a new/additional listing page with every host marked on a map for easy travel planning. As is right now (2020) the hosts gets listed as on a web store making it super hard to find hosts along your travel path or make a plan accordingly to the position of hosts. Great idea in general though, just make a good map of hosts please. Peace ✌️
