Finding Hasta La Vista Hostel was one of the best experience that I've had in my life. Here, the job is just colaborative maintence, always exchanging knowledge and happiness everywhere. You will find an amaizing person here in Albano. He is the manager of this incredible place. The hostel is practically brand new, with an amazing games room and it's just 5 blocks to the beach. Also it has a beautiful garden plenty of plants to take care off. It was my second volunteer expierence and it couldn't have been better. So blessed to find people and places like this one !!!

Hasta la Vista itself is a cozy hostel with very good structure and location... the job is flexible, different and working both in the greenhouse and garden has made me experience sustainable perspectives on construction and resources. You can learn a lot with the locals hanging in the atelier, we have a space for art and chilling under the hostel. Albano is a great inteligent figure that will treat you empathetically teaching you about the biology of plants and farming! Summerizing, 10 outta 10

Albano received me very well and always made sure that I was comfortable. He is very committed to making a change in Albania regarding waste. I left a few days before the WP and he was super understandable. thanks for everything 🙌

The host is very engaged with the environmental cause so I learned a lot about gardening, reducing and repurposing waste, and the local community. We even rescued puppies during my stay! If you come here you can expect varied tasks as the host likes it when everyone does a bit of everything. You shouldn't expect a very rigid shift schedule which I truly appreciated as I ended up starting a new job mid-experience and the host was very flexible and acommodating. But if you like rigid schedules with set days off and being constantly told what to do, you might struggle a bit.
