Hello happy folks!Welcome to our site!!! As you know travel industry is in very difficult, challenging moment, hostels in some areas like Dubrovnik which is almost exclusivelly "avio destination" even needed to close, or they are on knees struggling to pay basic bills and rental fees to authorities to continue as its situation with our place. But we still look into future!!! We all need new begginings and better normal. Lets say this is time for enthusiasts, people with passion and good skills for imrovisation. Citizents of Dubrovnik allready went through very hard (war) times only few decades ago, so we learned how with optimistic approach and hard motivation everything can recover, it takes time, but its challenging also. You can learn with us, we are nature lovers, your host and coworker is ethno botanist and herbalist. We will teach you some skills of survival. We get water from spring to drink.
We are family project, We kept very minimalist number of beds, but we are moving to connect with our organic mini farm-garden and small stay in Dubrovnik hills, still half hour away by direct bus from old town, and 15 minutes downhill to sea. So now beside very basic little work in keeping hostel alive, our plan is to set up everything at other place. We want to restore it to make it possible for mini farmstay, and grow all healthy veggies for our hostel and volunteers. All kind of skills connected to handyman ( carpentry, painting), gardening, decorating, art are welcomed but not necessary as we can learn together ! We treat everyone with big respect and flexibility. Person who will work with you to introduce you into all was for month volunteer and coordinator of helpers in Germany and Latin America himself. "no rush" is our motto. We can do tomorrow what we dont finish today. Our work adopts with situation with weather conditions. We are in constant touch to communicate to feel you and your personal needs and very flexible. Length of stay is easily agreed, mostly we extend it week by week, but everyone is free to move on earlier as plans of all of us are changing of course. Have a good experience with us! Ive
It really was a very good experience to work in this Hostel. Ive is very attentive and worried that you feel comfortable at all times. I was doing some painting and cleaning tasks with him and it was all very calm and productive at the same time. The Hostel is run by a family and the parents are adorable, I really miss Milka, the mother, who cooked the best food I have eaten in my whole trip. She really makes you feel at home as if she were your own mother taking care of you and cooking delicious dishes day by day. Milka, Dobri, Ive, Josip, Niko and Djodjo !! All the best for you!!!

At the moment I was starting to miss my family during all this traveling, I found them - people, who gave me the feeling of home. Thank you all and for each separetely. My special Thanks to Milka, who were taking care of me like family member and that I felt safe by asking for advice or learning from her so many things. Everyone were so generous, so thoughtful, caring and understanding, showing me the places, sharing conversations. Of course sometimes I wished to be not the only volunteer, that's why I believe that at summer it is different experience, but kindness of them is something above.

I don't really know where to start.
So i will tell one of the best things that happend in this experience. It was my birthday and the family prepared me a great dinner, and 2 cakes for me, it maybe sound simple, or not very important, but when you are far from your family and your friends, and your home and everything, it is REALLY good for the heart!
The tasks were simples, few hours of work only.
Milka, the mother of the family, she is Chef, so the breakfast and lunch are the best thing ever!
I totally recomend this experience, i would do it again and again.
