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!

Thank Zou my dear Paula



I had such a nice time in the hostel. During 3 weeks I met lots of international guests, got to know the local culture and to visit the cities of Mostar, Jajce, and República of Sprska. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who wants to get to know Bosnia. The shifts are 5 hours long and everything is flexible and arrangable, which allows you to do some sight seeing in the city during the date (or night). Also you get one full day off per week which allows you to do day trips. The hostel team is amazing and will always check out you are comfortable and doing fine 🤍
