It was nice experience stay and work at hotel castle park, the work time is more flexibility, I am the web developer, all the people here is nice, and easy-going people. the hotel is located in the forest, it is quieter place, and many trees. I recommend if you want to do volunteer job, can try it. the restaurant also serves good local dish.

My experience was good, I've connected with other volunteers and I believe that was the reason it was a good experience. This volunteering looks like a proper job and the bosses don't seem to know how to deal with volunteers, I don't blame them I just think they didn't get the correct vibe of it. I wasn't disrespected at all but indifference is what I would call it. Most of the staff isnice and kind but only a few workers in the hotel know how to speak English so the communication is pretty hard. I recommend only if you want a comfy place to sleep and good food to spend some time in Albania.

Castle Park it's a beautiful hotel and restaurant located 1.2 km away from town they provide everything you need for your stay, the work at the kitchen is basically to be a dishwasher and sometimes it's hard to communicate with the team since they do not speak English only Albania, while Alma it's occupied with a lot of matters.

Nicole is a very educated and open-minded girl. She has an extraordinary ability in communication and skills to learn new things. During her stay in Castle Park she quickly became part of the staff and immediately learned to be productive. and useful for the work. I wish him a lot of success and luck!
