My experience at the hostel was incredible! It was my first volunteer and from the moment I arrived they made me feel at home :) shift schedules were organized and there is flexibility for changes. Albano, Rahima and the entire team of volunteers, I will miss you guys! Thank you for this amazing experience.

My experience at the hostel was very good. It was my first hostel experience, and I learned a lot. The schedules were always respected and the team was always very flexible with the tasks and if we needed to change shifts. Albano is an excellent administrator and you can count on him for any questions you may have. The space for volunteers is very good, as we have our own space to eat meals and a bathroom too. Volunteers are responsible for their space, so each day someone needs to clean and everyone contributes to maintaining the place. Definitely I hope to return one day!

Simply amazing to spend a month in the hostel, Rahima and Albano are amazing managers and even more amazing human beings. I met lots of great people from the volunteering team and guests. Tasks where very well organized in shifts and very flexible in case you want to da day trip or need some specific time. By far the best hostel in Sarandë , I will absolutely come back to visit. Love you all guys ♥️

The hours were reasonable and it was a great environment to meet people! It can be a bit disorganized but it's not too stressful. Saranda is beautiful and so much fun in the summer :)
