The Experience

Our volunteers will help us greet and accommodate other travelers from all over the world. Nis, one of the oldest towns in Balkan, is on the crossroads connecting Europe with the middle east. This makes our city very interesting to visit and stay. Besides rich history our city can also offer beautiful nature and very tasty food, and very friendly people.

Ivan and Jelena were both amazing hosts, they had plenty of good advice on where to get food and drinks and enjoy nightlife around the city.

The hostel is amazing! Incredible structure and very close the city center and most of the touristic places! Ivan and Jelena were kinda with me since day one, always there if in case I need some people ❤️ The tasks are easy and working hours are fair too! I've met a lot of international travelers during my stay and I'll have this forever with me! Thank u guys! ❤️

The owners Ivan, Jelena (and future Peter 👶) are super nice, always making sure your stay is comfortable and giving you advice on everything you can do around 😎 (I arrived the day of my birthday so they bought me a cake for example 🥰) Niš is a perfect place to relax after a long trip, just walking along the river, chilling in the parks around 🌳 or inside the beautiful fortress. They also own a pet shop next to the hostel and feed some stray cats and dogs 🐶 so you'll always have a furry friend to play with 😉 Hvala lepo Ivan and Jelena for a great month volunteering with you 😘

Was a really nice experience in Niš! At the begging I had a little struggle in adapt to their way of work, but bolth Jelena and Yvan were patient and explained every time that was needed. Everything is settled and talked previously, so you won't have surprises of what you need to do, or how the hostel works. By the end of my journey there, I'm grateful for everything and wishing all the best for this beautiful family (hugs to Петар! He I'll be a great kid, cus he have great parents! ❤️)! I super recommend this place!

Ivan and Jelena are the best managers and owners ever, we got well and I am so happy we could work and enjoy in the same time, I felt so loved and cared from them. Hvala for the best experience in Niš. See you soon in México or Serbia. They became my friends.
