The H2O hostel is a great experience for every traveler, Sofia it's amazing, a lot of history, museums, parks, activities, parties, cheap food and drinks. We are in the Center of Sofia, what makes it more interesting and easy to move around the city. A GREAT PLACE to visit. Do I have to work? Yes, with commitment of the assigned tasks.
Our staff is about 6 to 8 travelers, sharing staff room with the other volunteers, living good moments, sharing work and friendship. The schedules for the work are done weekly, and we try to be as flexible as possible so you can have your two days off in a row or specific days if you want them, you can just ask with time so we can plan. Our main goal is to maintain a good and positive environment between the volunteers, as well as with the guests. You are coming to stay with us to be yourself, let us get to know you and you get to know us to share experiences, skills, ideas and so much more. In your free time you are a guest as well, and can enjoy as one, if we have a tour going on during the day there is a chance you can join for free. We want you to be not just one more person staying at the hostel, but part of a big family.
I think this place just wasn't for me, maybe because it's my first worldpackers experience. when I arrived the host talked about how there were a lot of refugees there that could disrespect me bc of their culture and that they only wanted to take from you, then I was told that it had weird guests and that people asked for money during the night which made me feel unsafe. also, I wasn't given a key for the room, and in the room I was given the only broken locker. There was also a dog in the room that I wasn't told about before. also it's nothing like the pictures (it's very run down).

Finally, my experience was in HOSTEL N1, it's another hostel of this family and I'm very happy to have been there. I connected a lot with another voluntees, I enjoyed this experience . This hostel is in the real center of Sofia and you can arrive by walk every place. Also, the job is easy and you have a lot time free for yourself.

I loved my time at H20. The working hours are very flexible, Juno was a great manager. I only did reception work, and it's pretty simple. I was there for a month and met some incredible people, other volunteers and guests. The location is perfect, you can go anywhere by foot. The hostel is really nice, although I think it deserves more attention, and needs some repairs. It's not a party hostel, and Sofia is also a more chill and quiet city. But there's plenty to do and you'll definitely have a good time. Thanks H20 team for everything, hope to be back soon!
