I was very disappointed with my experience here. Here's why : -cold reception, no information about the hostel, activities of the city or even for the daily life here. You have to fend for yourself when you arrive.
- The volunteers literally sleep in a cellar with a small window that does not open. It is dark during the entire day in the room and the dormitory of 8 cannot be ventilated.
- the hostel managers don't organize anything for the volunteers. No event or friendly moment is planned,the managers don't care about the experience offered, they just want to clean their hostels for free.

The hosts Jan and Helen are super nice, the hostel facilities are very comfortable and the tasks to be carried out are easy and somewhat flexible.

This is absolutely wonderful place for volunteers, both of starters and anyone that wants to improve oneself. The owners are super professional in management of the hostel and it's staffs, with very high standard. At the same time, they are so respectful and kind to the staffs. I felt being truly welcome and being part of the family. You will learn a lot here and get inspiration, especially, from the incredibly energetic and enthusiastic land lady. Apart from that, this is good place to make friends and get along with many other international travelers. There are always 8~10 staffs.
