It was a great experience. Sarajevo is a great city with lots of things to do, specially in summer. The vibe in the hostel with other travellers is really nice, you make friends inmediately and it feels like you know them from a lifetime.
The hostal and the installations are pretty good and everything is clean. The work is not hard. The hostal is nearby the city centre, so everything is walking distance, including the bars and the clubs.

That was, definitely, one of the best experiences I have ever had.
I knew that getting out of my comfort zone would be hard, but staying at Balkan hann hostel made that so natural and easy
All the people I met, all the experiences that I had made me a better person.
all the work that I had to do were so easy and quick that made me feel like home.
And Ivan , Unkas are such an amazing, incredible and lovely person.
I would recommend Hostel Balkan to everyone .

I stayed in Bakan Han for 2 weeks and I had a good time there. The tasks were easy: cleaning, bed making and reception. The hostel is near to the touristic area, supermarkets and restaurants. Unkas, Ivan and Fara always treated me good. Just got sad because I didn't do the city tour ☹️

How amazing was my stay at Balkan Han?!
I only have gratitude towards Unkas, Ivan, Faruk, Fahra and Lejla: amazing, kind, fun and fair people!
The volunteer role was exactly as described: helping with reception, beds and the best part: the bar (I love staying at the bar and wellcoming guests... almost doesnt feel like volunteering). It was all very easy, and you have plenty of time to do your own stuff still :)
The hostel is awesome and they even took me on tours and night outs (Ivan's band rock!).
I highly reccomend this opp and cant wait to come back one day!!!
Hvala my friends! :)
