The tasks are quite easy and the work is reasonable. Due to the current situation there weren‘t that many guests around, but I still had a lot of fun with the other volunteers. Especially the rooftop is good to meet new people and the hostel itself is located right in the heart of Athens. The kitchen is not very well-equipped and could use an upgrade.

The location is excellent, great work schedule very organized so you don't have to ask what your daily task is, if you work in team or at least in couple you will finish faster and will can enjoy the rest of the day. I will miss the others volunteers and also Athens. I hope to come back again. Thank you Small Funny World for let me be part of your team!

The place is a hostel to meet new people for sure, the rooftop provides a verry friendly enviroment. The staff is super cool, Eleni, Astrid, Lyden the girls are great! The location is amazing, it is in the city center and everything you need is near, and if you are on a small bugdet like me you can cook your meal. The breakfest is delicious (especially the fetta cheese) . The job is easy, basic housekeeping, doing beds is quite simple. Rooms are big but the bath not so much, I had a problem with bugs in my bed and I had an allergic reaction but Astrid gave me medicine :) I recomend the hostel!
