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!

I had a great time at Small Funny World. The staff was amazing, they truly embraced me. The tasks are easy and the schedule very flexible. I learned new skills and enjoyed so much :) I had problems with bed bugs and also I guess the kitchen could be improved (but you can prepare a basic meal). Thank you for everything. I'm gonna miss everyone.
