Travel is a universal right. This belief is the foundation of Worldpackers, an online community that helps travelers stay in hostels all over the world through a unique approach.
The concept is that you can exchange your skills for accommodation to stay at hostels helping out as a member of staff. The Worldpackers website lists hostels in over 92 countries so travelers on a budget have a wide range of choice where they can apply to be volunteer staff. Travelers with any skills are welcome, you just have to find the right hostel for you. You will help out with many interesting tasks from welcoming guests at reception to gardening to playing music to a being social media manager and more.
It's a whole new world when you are not a tourist.
