My experience could not have been better, 100% recommended!! Ive is an amazing host with many stories to tell. The hostel makes you feel at home and the people you meet there even more. The work is relaxed, and you have plenty of free time to explore the city. I will definitely miss the hostel and Ive a lot, who welcomed me in an incredible way!

Very beautiful location that is very accessible via public transport to the old town and main bus station. The work here is interesting and has quite a bit of free time but can be unstructured at times. Feel free to message me regarding my experience!

Definitely, I loved it my experience in here because I could, met to local culture, food, family and people. Ivi and his family are a lovely, Milka is an amazing Chef. The tasks were easy and simple, the house have a great location you can enjoy the nature, beaches and wonderful sunsets. Now they have different projects to become the place, to more local and environmental artistic house-hostel.

I had a great time at the guest house! The host Ive and his family are really welcoming, they took me and other volunteers on tours around, invited us to their family dinner table (thanks for all the great meals Milka!), and were always willing to adapt to whatever came our way. It's probably the cleanest and most organized hostel I have ever been to, very well equipped and great location too! Overall, really recommend it, Dubrovnik was a great city to experience :)

Lucas was great volunteer, and greatest artist ever stayed with us. His extraordinary art works are just impressive and remind us on him. Calm and positive attitude was a bonus. His creativity is such a gift, and he works with patience and great commitment with every task, no matter is it garden or hostel area, he made you feel you can rely on him.
Totally recommend him and wish him success with his talent, as he deserve!!!
Thanks!!!

This is the worst experience that I've had as a female traveler in the eight months that I've been on the road. They want free workers and It developed into a really bad situation with them literally SHOUTING and being verbally aggressive, abusive and rude- I HAVE VIDEOS I only got a bad couch to sleep. They expected me to clean the entire hostel by myself. The old lady (Milka) would say "men are better than woman", "you should already know all you have to do before coming" and then would shout at me for not doing things they never asked me to do and for not cleaning in my free day...

Person behind this profile is a trickster, fraud abusing this platform to have free holidays, in 20 years of working in hospitality with helpers/other staff and guests I havent ever faced someone like this, in 7 days she didnt done 5 hours of work, pushing other staff to work instead, and cleaning behind her. Overslept every second day instead to work at 8am, she slept till 11:45 (obviously hangover) even on her first working day. She was not able to finish even a simple task I asked her to.( I have pictures to prove, so sad) She abused the fact I was in isolation, so when I get back to control, couldnt believe my eyes, filthy floors with clothes of hers all over, dirty toilet in her room, she couldnt keep tidy even her own space, and we gave her a private room instead dorm to have more commodity. Last day she didnt mind my mother with crutches sweep floors while she was doing her digital job during her chore. Ignorant to our guests we find some bed reviews because of it. I never left review like this but its good to be aware who you are taking in.
