Good place where to stay for some weeks. Ioanna is a good person and a kind host and the hostel is a friendly place where to know a lot of people. Though volunteers were not having the promised breakfast, the structure of the building was not the best and even if on this app I was supposed to be there as a receptionist once I was there they told me to do housekeeping shifts.
Anyway the experience was great, the team was amazing and I was able to enjoy a lot the city since the position of the hostel is perfect.

Ioanna and her mother are very kind. They provided me the working schedule in the beginning of the week so I could plan my days. The work was very simple and I had a lots of free time to visit the city. The hostel’s location is perfect, it’s a walking distance from most of the tourist attractions and there are many bars on the neighbourhood. It has a nice rooftop where we can meet other travellers or just chill by ourselves. However the kitchen is not well equipped at all, it really needs a improvement. There were some weird older men living there that made me uncomfortable sometimes.

I had a great experience! Working at the reception was quite easy and interesting, I had contact with guests from all over the world and the schedule was great - Ioanna would send it to me every Sunday and was super open if I needed to change something. We had a great communication, I could ask her anything anytime, she is very polite and helpful. Ioanna's mom, who works other shifts at the reception, explained everything to me and we made a great team! The hostel is great, spacious, nice rooftop, really really well located - I could visit any touristic spot walking max 20 minutes! Loved it!
