I think this place just wasn't for me, maybe because it's my first worldpackers experience. when I arrived the host talked about how there were a lot of refugees there that could disrespect me bc of their culture and that they only wanted to take from you, then I was told that it had weird guests and that people asked for money during the night which made me feel unsafe. also, I wasn't given a key for the room, and in the room I was given the only broken locker. There was also a dog in the room that I wasn't told about before. also it's nothing like the pictures (it's very run down).

Finally, my experience was in HOSTEL N1, it's another hostel of this family and I'm very happy to have been there. I connected a lot with another voluntees, I enjoyed this experience . This hostel is in the real center of Sofia and you can arrive by walk every place. Also, the job is easy and you have a lot time free for yourself.

I loved my time at H20. The working hours are very flexible, Juno was a great manager. I only did reception work, and it's pretty simple. I was there for a month and met some incredible people, other volunteers and guests. The location is perfect, you can go anywhere by foot. The hostel is really nice, although I think it deserves more attention, and needs some repairs. It's not a party hostel, and Sofia is also a more chill and quiet city. But there's plenty to do and you'll definitely have a good time. Thanks H20 team for everything, hope to be back soon!
