A really good first experience for me. The best part was the group of volunteers I met there. It was such a joy to be with them, we had so much fun together. I will for sure meet some of them again! The hostel provides basic food like pasta, fruits, oatmeal, or riz. The shifts are 8 hours shifts which means you have more free days so in total you will have your 32hours. I recommend if you want to be with a big group of volunteers and want to have fun in the city.

Big thanks to Juan for joining our team for a while. He is a good-hearted and nice person, was there to help when we needed it. We wish you good luck with your further travels!



Probably the most social and fun hostel you'll ever be in . The atmosphere is just great , people are suuuuuuper social ,staff , other volunteers, guests, just everybody🙈🔥 . People cook together, make movie nights, game nights , and usually go out together after

The work was actually much less at my time and the work ours and shifts are very comfortable and can also be interchanged with other volunteers .
Theres always time to make trips between shifts and explore the outside of Sofia .

Theres probably much more I could say but I you should discouver some things yourself 🙈😂👌

These weeks were some of the best weeks of my life. They were a mixture of meeting amazing people from all over the world, experiencing local culture, enjoying nature, having fun… All the volunteers were super nice and friendly, and the manager of the hostel (Slavyan) is one of the most amazing persons I have ever met. It is incredible how much I learned from him, a few hours with him is worth more than a thousand books. The tasks were easy and enjoyable, and sharing the hostel life with people from all over the world is just amazing. I will never forget my family at Smart Hostel Sofia.
