The Experience

Hi, we're looking for a ninja who can fix and/or possibly build things, like a skilled carpenter. We are looking to extend out reception desk top and paint a few walls. Of course you'll also be able to work in the bar if you so desire. We want to make sure that you have fun too and engage with guests.

It was not the best fit for me. The schedule I was given was from 10:30am to 2:30 pm making beds and cleaning the rooms with only one day off a week. The tasks were very physically demanding on me because I’m only 5’ 1”, 100 lbs, and probably a little weak. By the second week my shoulders started hurting from changing the duvet covers, my wrist was sore from the repetitive motions involved. On my 3rd and final week, I struggled to make it through my shift due to the soreness. Even after finishing my shift on my second to last day, I was yelled at in front of others while resting in my bed.

For me was bad experience with the team dorm, was so dirty and noisy, and other nonconformities why I decided to leave before my end date, I understand is a party hostel but I didn’t can sleep in my first week, anyway is a good place for party’s and make international friends, the other volunteers are friendly and good persons.

I had an amazing time at the Whole Wide World hostel! This hostel creates a great environment to make friends and have fun, the people I met were the best part of the trip. Activities go on every night in the hostel so it’s impossible to get bored, Zagreb is also a really cool city to explore. I will miss many things about this place, especially the karaoke on Mondays!⭐️💃🏼

Katie was always there when we needed her. She added to the team dynamic and was always ready to party. Katie completed all her tasks as requested and had no issues speaking up if she had a any questions. Katie is a likeable person and did well working the bar. We would love to have Katie back if she ever wanted to return and we have no issues recommending her to anyone else who is looking for a trusted volunteer. All the best.
