The island is amazing and in the hostel you can meet people from all over the world! The task was easy to do and it was everyday the same. About the experience, there is no family feeling at all, It's more like an easy job than a volunteering experience. I was supposed to have comisions from the bars but that didn't happen and I recomend to talk everything in detail with Bartul before going, to avoid missunderstandings. Bartul and the rest of the staff were nice and respetfull all the experience.

The hostel is a great place to stay. Hvar island is impressively beautiful and peaceful. Bartul is a great host. He's funny, patient understanding and is always willing to help the volunteers. I stayed before the season starts, so I didn't learn about the hostel routine, but the job is not difficult. The rooms and common areas are easy to clean and maintain. Also, Silvia is lovely and works hard. Bartul's parents took me as part of their own family, so I felt like I was home. I absolutely recommend anyone to volunteer there. I miss Hvar and hope to come back one day!

In general it was a good experience, I was looking for a quiet place where to spend the season, the tasks were easy to do and only a few hours a day Bartul and Veronika always have good availability to help the volunteer ..Thanks for everything ;)
