AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Kostas and his family are incredible people. I had a great time with them and I will miss them a lot. They are always willing to help and guide. The tasks are not difficult at all and there is always time to enjoy Ioannina, which is a beautiful city.

It was my first volunteer and I highly recommend it. I felt at home all the time and I was never alone. You will meet an incredible family and people from all around the world.

I’ll be forever thankful to Kostas and his family for this opportunity ❤️.

Kostas and George became my family for the past month! I feels I was the daughter and the sister they never had. They’re very good and experienced in having volunteers there! Super nice, friendly, they make you feel part of the family. You feel so comfortable and welcoming that you’re start to feel like family! This was the best experience of volunteering so far! I really want to see them again!

I stayed at backpackers and travelers for 3 weeks and I had the best time! Kostas and Giorgos are both extremely helpful and caring people and they really made me feel at home. The work was very relaxed and gives you plenty of time to explore the beautiful city. The hostel is in a great location with tons of shops and restaurants nearby. I definitely recommend this place to others and I hope to be back again one day!!

I would highly recommend this experience, I had a really nice time in Ioannina and the host Kostas was making sure that I feel comfortable and have everything that I need.
He also told me what there is to see in the area, Ioannina is a nice city with a beautiful lake and a small island in the middle and you can also go to Meteora and Vikos which is really nearby.
I totally enjoyed my stay there and if you’re planning on going to Greece definitely plan a stop at this cute hostel ☀️

What to say ? It was like feeling at home. I was arrived like a customer and after one week i asked to make volunteering. I spent more than one month over there and create a real relationship with the owner Kostas, his son Giorgos, his girlfriend Constatina and my teammates Leo and Sophie. We worked all together in a really peaceful way and also the work was chill (1/1h30 of cleaning and changing bed, and 3/4h of reception). So you have the opportunity to do your stuff or visit the city, the lake and the Vikoz canyon close to here. This place already miss me and for sure I will coming back.
