The Experience

Easy 5 hours shifts in exchange of being part of our small bohemian family :) the main goal of our Hostel is atmosphere, since we only have 16 beds, mostly everyone knows everyone, its like a big family! For the work its important to be social, but also we need workers who in the same time do the cleaning properly and keep the people organised. Grocery store, bars, food places within 2 minutes!! We are 5 minutes walk from the Danube river!!

Thank you Marcia!!! Amazing experience for us too! Thanks for everything!



La Boheme was my first experience as a volunteer and I am glad for it. The hostel keeps itself in the origen of what a hostel should be (at least for me): alternative, but comfortable, peaceful and well located. Bálazs is a very welcoming and fun host. He's opened to ideas and suggestions, and also gives you all info needed to visit Budapest. While I was there, he promoted two typical Hungarian dinners, which were very nice. The tasks are easy-peasy, you have plenty of time to relax and visit the city, and you get to meet very nice people at the hostel. I'd definitely recommend La Boheme.

Thank you Fernanda!! :) Hope you guys are well in Asia now! :) And hope to see you one time again!



it is a great place & overall I had fun volunteering at La Boheme, Budapest. The hostel is small and quiet with a good kitchen setup and all basic amenities. The rules are clear, with 5 hour shift 5 days spread over a week, we have plenty of time to explore the city. Balazs is a great host & ensures that you are all setup before you start your first day. He was very understanding and cooperative through my stay. Although one volunteer was friend of the host, he acted as a supervisor authority even though it shouldn't be like that. Apart from that, overall it was a great experience.

Thank you Neha!:))



My first experience as a volunteer has been really good. the work is simple and the atmosphere pleasant. The hostel is very well located near shops and restaurants. you can reach the danube and the center of the city walking as it is very close. I have shared work with a good group of people. Thanks Balasz, Bradley, Roger and Josie. I recommend the experience honestly. We have been a family.
