The Experience

The job consists of taking care of the plants outside while taking cuttings to create new ones inside while improving soil quality. Building a green house and sprouting seeds. During low season there are very little to no guests here. So cleaning is mostly keeping the place ventilated. Occasional wood scrap constructions of shelves are common.

My experience at hasta la vista hostel was very good, even off season I could visit a lot of places around Saranda and my work times were very flexible. The staff room is very good and private and the work tasks simple and easy to learn.

I really recommend this experience. Albano is a very flexible person with good energy. The work is very easy and as it is described. He gives you a very nice volunteer department. I would really go back to that place.

My experience in Hasta La Vista Hostel was incredible, i have no words for what i did in this two weeks that looked like two days. I loved to work in the reception of the hostel, i think will help me in the future to in terms of social communication and the best part was to meet so many people from all over the world and i learned so much and had a lot of fun with them, i will never forget them. Albania is an amazing country, the beaches are really beautiful and the ocean is so clean. Albano is such a nice host, and he is really kind and helped us in everything, i just loved to meet him

I had so much fun staying at Hasta La Vista. The host, Albano, cares about the environment and recycling so you get to learn at least a little about that. Saranda is also a cozy city with beautiful beaches and lots of places to visit (but could be crowded during the summer which was at times annoying). Overall, it was a good first volunteering experience :)
