Balkan Experience at Eco Hostel in National Park

The Exchange

Helping us to prepare food, wash up, serve guests, socialise with guests, keep guest accommodation tidy, keep our kitchen/house tidy. Perhaps some gardening as well as socialising with our chickens and Lily, our mangulica pig. Our place is an intimate and creative smallholding, visited by all sorts of (international) travellers. We've started only last year, so it's all still very new, also to us. If this is your kind of place, you'll love it!

Program Details

We are going to have a lot of fun, but we're also going to work hard. If you have the right attitude and do everything with love and care, we will love you back and care for you generously. We are flexible and constantly evolving our ideas, which sometimes can be annoying, because our plans might change. On the other hand, serendipity can appear in wonderful ways.

Activities & Shift

We serve 3 meals per day, so any help here is really appreciated. As you'll be living on site, you need to be ready for breakfast at 8:00 and you might be even helping out until 22:00 if there's a late bbq. However, during the day there is often plenty of time for relaxing.


The more responsible you are, the more responsibility you'll get!
