Albano is very flexible with work hours, a really good person, we didn’t stayed on the place that shows in the pictures but it was ok. Some volunteers worked more than others, I felt that is not organized at all, but it’s a place with really good people!

I'm still in the place! Came to stay for two weeks, and now I'm thinking of staying longer! Albano is a very inteligent and open minded person, it's just very nice to be around and help him out on his projects of the hostel. The place is in a very good spot as well, with some nice beaches on the surroundings. I would definetly recommend this place for anyone who wants to have a good time in Albania, that by the way, is one AMAZING country, with good food, wonderfull people and beautiful nature. Give it a shot! You'll love it...

Albano was always very nice and flexible, however the lack of organization was sometimes a problem because there were volunteers that worked way less than the others. Also, we were supposed to get one meal per day during our stay but we never got a single meal and that was disappointing. Plus, we didn’t get to stay at the place showed in the pictures, we were put downstairs in a much dirtier area. Overall it was a nice experience, we met nice people, and did our part! We ended up staying less than expected but we worked more than expected also, so that worked out in the end.

Thank you for all your help. It was really exceptional.
Sorry you felt a lack of organization. You participated in project involving 4 floors and a garden. Honestly we have never been more organized. :D
Than for the meal, as far as i know our positions do not offer food but if there was a mistake you could have told me something during your stay.
The downstairs dirtier area has been the staff room for the last 2 years...
Anyhow thank you again and best of luck with your travels.
I hope this experience helped you as much as it helped us.
