The hostel is a fun, quirky hostel that brings interesting travellers from all corners of the world together. Unkas runs his hostel with passion and has always been fair and easy to work with. What you're given as a volunteer during this experience is well worth the amount of hours and effort you're expected to put in. The facilities are excellent - especially the garden for socialising - and guests often comment on how nice the 'vibe' and atmosphere of the place is. Thanks again Unkas as well as all the amazing staff and fellow volunteers that make the hostel as great as it is. I'll be back!

It took me a few days to get into the groove and feel like I fit in, but once I did, I had a really great time! Unkas is very passionate about this hostel and will push you to do your best, but is very fair and kind once he knows he can count on you. I only wish I knew beforehand that I would sometimes have to sleep at an apartment that's a 10 min walk away from the hostel, which was a little inconvenient. Keep that in mind. Other than that, I had a really great time here! Very social environment and plenty of free time to socialize and explore the city.

Such an incredible experience volunteering at the hostel! Unkas is so kind and generous. The work is straightforward, mainly consisting of checking people in, preparing beds and bar work at night. Unkas is very fair and if you put in the work for him and keep yourself busy during your allocated shift time, you will have plenty of time to explore Sarajevo or take days trips near by on your time off. The hostel is so much fun and very social so was able to make so many friends during my 2 week stay!

Thank you Alex for volunteering at our hostel! We wish you the best, hvala!



I had a great experience at the hostel overall, it's important to note that both me and Unkas are aware that not everything went perfectly all the way. I agreed on staying one extra week to help out and I wouldn't have done it if I had bad things to say about this place. Tasks are fair and easy. Sleeping arrangements can be a little off sometimes. Good communication is a must for me, and I struggled sometimes with this matter. If you're tolerant and openminded you will easily find your way around. Sarajevo is a wonderful city and the hostel has the perfect location.
