The Experience

Hi there, we are a medium sized Hostel in the Heart of Tirana and we are looking for an extra two pair of hands to help us during season. We have been the second Hostel in Albania and we opened our doors in 2009. We are looking energetic and open minded people to help us with the basic Hostel work like preparing Breakfast, helping to clean the house, checking guests in and out, helping at the Bar etc.

Working in Hostel Albania was very good! We’ve done more hours per day than it was described cause they needed more help there, so everything was agreed beforehand. We slept in staff room where there were enough space to keep our stuff and also it was safe to let everything there.
The job is basically work in the reception and cleaning and organizing all the hostel. Claas is a nice person as so is Michelle and Lara. They helped us a lot :D

It was a great experience.  Class is a really nice guy and does his best to make you feel good, like you're a guest. I worked longer hours than what was on the platform, but he asked me first if I was ok with the schedule and I said yes. The other volunteers who had been there for a long time helped me a lot (love u Miche). There are no free meals, but if you are the responsible for the guests breakfast, you can buy it for yourself. On the other hand, Class had a great barbecue on my last week. It was a great experience, I highly recommend it.

The thing other travelers need to know is that the work is fairly simple, it's just repetition. The host Claas was friendly and welcoming to the hostel, along with the other volunteers there. Volunteering there was one of the best experiences of my life. I recommend anyone to come here looking for volunteer work.

Claas is a very nice person and even that me and Manu came one week later (cause we got sick) he was very understanding. The work is about do the check in, cleanning and some small maintenance, really easy and with flexible schedule we had enought time to enjoy the city. He is an amazing cook and we learned a lot with him. We had a great time there we certainly recommend!
