The Experience

We need some extra hands to keep our small boutique hostel in a great and sparkling clean condition. The hostel is situated at the heart of the historical city center of Heraklion. Tasks are morning cleaning and change beddings from 8am to 12pm (4hours/day), 6 days/week or during the evening. We will supply you with the best tips about local treasures and how to travel around Crete.

That was great how Joannis and his brother welcomed me and induced me into the duties, it did not take much of my effort to help them run the hostel, I had plenty of time to explore Heraklion and learn about Crete history and culture. They were really friendly and supporting when I was there. Really cool experience!



It was my first experience as a volunteer abroad and I couldn’t be more happy about it! The hostel is super nice and clean and I met amazing people over my 3 weeks there. Totally recommend it!



I'll give my best recommendations for this place!
Super nice and friendly team (a lovely family') who explained to me everything in the first days... my shifts were very simple, and always the fair hours.
The Hostel is nice and looks brand new, an amazing rooftop to chill! :D
Curtains in the beds' its an extra point for any hostel +
It's a shame I can't stay longer this time... x thanks x ευχαριστώ !
