I enjoyed my time at the hostel, and I met a lot of amazing people. However, communication from the manages was minimal; volunteers wouldn't get our schedules for each week until late Sunday night (sometimes after midnight) making it difficult to plan anything. Additionally, some aspects of the experience weren't communicated well beforehand. Volunteers stay far from the main building of the hostel and up a massive flight of stairs. Also, leading activities isn't a big part of the experience, even though that's noted on the site - the vast majority of the work is reception and cleaning.

Anna and Milan are amazing and kind, and I had a great time with the guests and other volunteers. However, the exchange for 30 hours a week is minimal: no discounts, no free tours, and you rarely lead activities, contrary to what was promised. The accommodation is inconvenient, far from guests, and behind the scenes, the hostel is poorly managed. Volunteers are undervalued, often performing multiple roles without proper scheduling or compensation. The situation could improve with fewer hours, more activity leadership, and meal provisions. Keep this in mind if you sign up.

Thank you the hostel, Anna, Felipe and Milan :)) I had such a great experience getting to know Croatia and meeting new people here. The hours were very flexible and manageable and the hosts made it a very enjoyable experience. I loved my time here and would recommend it to anyone.

My time here has been pretty enjoyable overall. The host, the workers, and the volunteers have all been friendly and respectful. Whenever I didn't understand something, they'd help me with it. The job itself is straightforward and simple, but also fun. I enjoy helping people and getting to know about the world, and a hostel is a great way to do both. This hostel itself is cozy, it's tidy and organised, in a nice location, everything. Every day feels complete and I feel welcome here.

My time at the hostel was incredible & i cant say enough good things about the staff there. particularly adri, anna & milan were absolutely amazing & some of the nicest people ive met. dario was great and adjusted the schedule so i could make the most of my days off and visit kotor for a few days which was really nice of him. mostly the work is easy - some shifts are harder than others dependent of what hostel building they are from. would definitely recommend this work exchange!!!
