The Experience

We need support in the everyday maintenance of the House like house-sitting, cleaning-up the rooms, changing the sheets. On weekends it's more busy as hikers arrive and tourist groups arrive, and we need support more in the kitchen background, like cooking pancakes, preparing vegetables, do the washing up. We always work in team so our volunteer can choose the daily task that fits better for him / her.

Being at the hostel on the of the mountains for a month was an interesting experience. I was surrounded by many amazing and welcoming people (Bel, Sandor, Viktor, Zsofi) 💕 you will have the chance to eat Goulash, cabbage soup and sausages. Pancakes will be part of your routine, my shifts were basically Fridays through Sundays and they were not very demanding. If you are keen on music or play any instrument, you will instantly bond with them :)

wonderful experience I learnt a lot about Hungarian culture through food, music and drink! Viktor and Sandor are very accommodating and make you feel right at home. The work is easy and it is usually only very busy at the weekend. There is always someone to ask for help, and if the work is too much it is not a problem. Sandor and viktor thank you!

I spent an amazing time here and Im so grateful with Viktor and Szofi who were the best host and were always kind with me and ready to help me in anything I needed.

I learnt how to make pancakes and also helped filling them, I helped pealing vegetables , cleaning rooms and changing the sheets. Also learnt how to make the gulyas(so delicious).

This experience would not have been the same without the amazing group of people who work there, they were the funniest, craziest and kind hearted.

I could not feel more lucky 😊
