My experience in Balkan han was super cool. The staff is great and super welcoming.
I suppose to stay for 8 weeks but i had to leave earlier and find another volunteer job cus the owner decided that i was not needed anymore cus of the low season. Besides taht everything os ok, im super grateful for our time together and i would recomend it.

Best time in my favorite city of the whole trip. Tasks are easy and the work hours are flexible if you're good in the job. The atmosphere of the place is amazing! I'll always be thankful for being so well received for Unkas, Ivan and Fara. They are kind, gentil, polite and they will be always there to help you with all your needs. I'm glad I had this beautiful opportunity: to work in such a nice hostel, to understand more about the culture and the war, and to enjoy the city and your vibrant nightlife. Thank you!
