Chillout Hostel

As a former volunteer I can assure you that you will have one of the best experiences of your life, you will meet people who will be your friends forever and you will fall in love with Zagreb and its people.
In Chillout we are a family that likes to have fun, sing, dance, cook and why not? Have a drink together.

I am a 29-year-old Mexican who has traveled for 3 years before starting to work in Zagreb. I enjoy having fun and working at the same time, listening to people, and trying to help them in any way I can. I also like to drink beer and enjoy my life. A significant portion of the staff in the hostel have been volunteers at some point. That is why we understand what it means to travel without a defined plan. In our team, no matter what your position, nationality, mother tongue, etc., is, we treat everyone with absolute respect. I assure you that you will feel like a member of the family from the moment you arrive :D

I definitely enjoyed my time in Zagreb, the hostel is in a great location to explore the city and rest of the country as well. The hours were respected and Efrain was an amazing host, making sure I felt welcomed and taken care of during my entire stay. The meals were great, and the majority of the staff were very friendly with me and I enjoyed working with them. I want to clarify for others that I felt this was more of a hotel and lacks the young traveler community. Because of the bars and club, there are a lot of people around that aren’t guests. Also, smoking inside is allowed.

I am very happy I chose this hostel as my first volunteer experience. Although sometimes the work was tiring, the hours were always respected. The volunteers and staff are lovely, and I made lots of friends at the hostel. Efrain is very nice and makes an effort to make all the volunteers feel comfortable and have a good time.

I had fun with the other volunteers, they are all amazing people and I learned something from each of them. Zagreb and the coast of Croatia is really nice, thanks to the flexible schedule I had time to explore that. There are usually a lot of volunteers (around 10/13, it’s good if you are a sociable person and are used to hostels) and you help in different things (cleaning in the bar especially but also housekeeping and cleaning in the kitchen). The food is good and you also receive tips. Efrain used to be a volunteer as well and is always ready to hear you out!

No primeiro dia todos os direitos e deveres foram informados.
A escala é entregue aos domingo, os horarios sao respeitados, os locais sao rotativos, vc pode ajudar no bar do terreo, no rooftop, governança ou cozinha. Dependendo da demanda, o trabalho em alguns dias pode ser mais arduo do que outros...
Alimentação: cafe da manhã e almoco sao otimos! Nao ha distincao entre hospede e voluntario (outro ponto positivo, eles se preocupam se o voluntário tem alguma restrição alimentar)
Fiquei muito feliz com essa experiência. Obrigada equipe Chillout :)
