Hostel Balkan Han

We think that our hostel, with our current image has a lot to offer to young people and we think that Sarajevo is an awesome and interesting city with a lot of history.

We are looking for volunteers who would be happy to work in a amazing hostel with amazing people and lot of interesting guests from all around the world in the center of Sarajevo.

I had such a great time meeting wonderful guests & making new friends in this hostel. Faris & Amina were so fun to work with! ! Working hours varied, but usually I worked 5 hours reception/cleaning in the day and 2 hours at the bar at night. My “days off” included a night bar shift as well. I feel that better communication skills would have improved my experience. I received contradictory instructions at times, and it felt difficult to satisfy the host with my work, who struggles to express criticism in a respectful manner. Overall I’m grateful for the friends I made and time I spent here!
