I stayed at Compass Hostel, and I absolutely loved my experience!! I met volunteers from all over the world and learned so much. Ilyas was a great manager and our group of volunteers had so much fun. I wish I could have stayed longer. The company owns 3 hostels (Compass/the hostel/Jungle Hostels) so they may switch you depending on their needs. If you want to clarify where you will be staying you might want to reach out multiple times to the owners. Try to take the time to meet volunteers from the other hostels too, it was so fun meeting everyone and making friends!

SO much fun! I had an amazing time with the other volunteers and management team. This was a wonderful experience. You have to be okay with living in tight quarters with others (and I bought a fan to help me sleep better), but I have no complaints. I enjoyed using the projector in the hostel to have movie nights, I loved the family dinners each week, I have the best memories!!!

We had such a great time at compass! The hostel is very modern and clean, and the staff and volunteers were super friendly.

I worked for a month at Compass House where Ilyas is a manager - he's a brilliant guy who has tried to make my stay as best as possible even when there were misunderstandings with the guests. The assigned tasks are standard as in any hostel, but if you don't have time to do some part of the work, you can easily agree with the team to transfer some part of it to the next shift. The coolest thing is that you can, through existing partnerships with other hostels, travel around the island on your days off. it will definitely make your experience even more exciting;)

In the two months I spent in the hostel I was lucky to meet many volunteers who became my family. Managers and volunteers have made my experience memorable. There are severals teams to choose from: apartments, buildings and reception. In each of these you can manage your own commitments and free time. You will share every single moment with the other people of the hostel and for this you will create intense bonds and live unique experiences My heart remained in the hostel and with my beloved international friends
