I would have stayed for at least another month with Alban, Tempo and the puppies, but unfortunately there was already another destination confirmed, I loved every second of this experience as well as the tasks performed, the hostel is very well maintained and is close to everything, Saranda surprised my expectations on account of Alban and his incredible place, the only thing that made me a little sad was not being able to finish the green house sorry for that Alban!
and Thanks for everything and Hasta La Vista <3

Hasta La Vista hostel is a very unique place and we met a lot of different people there! Alban (the owner) is one of the best person that I ever met, always very kind and polite with everybody. Our tasks was about taking care of the garden, the puppies, Tempo and some few guests (we spend a month during the low season), certainly we will be back if we have the opportunity.

This was my first volunteer experience and it was perfect! The hostel is organized and working there was great. The other volunteers were awesome and that made the job fun. Albano is a very nice and caring guy, he is always ready to help. He is doing a great job in the garden and every day looks better. Saranda is one of the most beautiful cities I have visited in Albania and the people are very kind!. Thanks to everyone I met, Albano, Evangelo, Katy, Tempo (Cute dog) and everyone else! Thanks for the experience and for the patience, Hasta la vista is part of my story now!
