Overall, my time at the hostel was great. I ended up helping with events which made it a lot easier to get to know the guests and socialize. Reception is also really easy! There are quite a few day trips from Saranda and the beach is really nice. I think 3 weeks was the perfect amount of time and I look forward to coming back!

I had a great time at the hostel! Everyone was so welcoming and the reception work was easy. We worked four hours a day with one day off each week so there was still plenty of time to explore the surroundings. There was a bit of construction going on while I was there and once everything is done the hostel will be even better! I would definitely recommend you to volunteer here:)

I had a really good time at Hasta lá Vista. The reception work is easy and I had a lot of time to explore the surroundings and just relax by the beach. I stayed for three weeks and since the city is quite small I would say that was the perfect amount. The atmosphere in the hostel was quite calm and it didn't have too many guests.

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in, a very familiar place, where I had simple and very easy tasks to perform, Albano is a guy I want to be friends with for life, always present at the hostel answering questions and helping with some things, the location is also very good, a very large hostel, very tidy, very quiet to work, to have fun as well as being close to the beach, there is a supermarket nearby so everything was very good, I hope to return soon! :D

Albano and Maryam were so friendly and welcoming, as were the other volunteers at the time I was there. Instantly felt at home. Once I was taught how to use the system it was really simple to check guests in and out, and complete other necessary tasks on my shifts. The 4 hour shifts go quite quickly and give you the rest of the day to explore Saranda or just chill out. Overall I had a lovely time and wish I could stay longer. Thank you!
