Kőhegyi Menedékház

We firstly recommend ourselves for those who like to be in the middle of the nature in a forest, for those who beside working are in the need of a relaxing, regenerating phase in their lives. On the other hand, weekends can be quite busy and social, but one thing is for sure: enough time off will be assured to everyone to keep balance between isolation and social life.

Volunteers who join us will meet a team with very open-minded people, and both you'll have a detailed experience about different groups and people who stay and take a break at the house, but you can also benefit of the peacefulness of the nature around on weekdays. We are flexible considering working time, volunteers can decide whether they would like to participate more on weekdays or on weekends, so you can have at least 2-3 days by week to discover Budapest or other parts in Hungary. For those who can arrange a stay more than 1 month we can offer longer breaks to discover Hungary and it's culture.

wonderful experience I learnt a lot about Hungarian culture through food, music and drink! Viktor and Sandor are very accommodating and make you feel right at home. The work is easy and it is usually only very busy at the weekend. There is always someone to ask for help, and if the work is too much it is not a problem. Sandor and viktor thank you!

Estoy muy feliz con mi experiencia, Viktor es muy amable y prepcupado, siemlre está pendiente de si necesitas algo o si quieres descansar del trabajo, los otros compañeros de trabajo también son muy amables y alegres. Pude mejorar un poquito mi inglés y aprender algunas cosas de la cultura húngara ☺️ y para qué decir el lugar! Si te gusta la aventura y salir a caminar, tienes muchos senderos para recorrer y mucha tranquilidad a tu alrededor, en serio estoy muy feliz con este voluntariado!

My experience here was amazing! Viktor is a really nice host and always making shure that you feel confortable! The place is really good to stay in contact with nature, you have a lot of trekking paths that you can do. The jobs are easy going and you also have time to go visit Budapest or other places around! Recommend 100%.

Gran experiencia, conocer la cultura húngara y sus comidas típicas fue lo mejor. La casa está en un bosque con senderos. Mis deberes los fines de semana eran cortar verduras, ayudar a hacer panqueques y ayudar a limpiar. pero nunca exigieron hacerlo, fue solo voluntario. Hay mucho tiempo libre para explorar el lugar o simplemente relajarse. Extrañaré al perro de la casa llamado Czeppe, ¡para mí me quedo con él! Y Lazlo y Bea tienen un amor por la gente, con Viktor el anfitrión tuve poca comunicación a través del lenguaje, un poco fría desde el principio de personalidad pero muy buena persona.
