Gus was a legend. He was really really responsible and very hard working person. You will make your life easier if you take him in. There is literally nothing bad to say about him and he was super good with other guests. Very social. Thanks Gus!

How amazing was my stay at Balkan Han?! I only have gratitude towards Unkas, Ivan, Faruk, Fahra and Lejla: amazing, kind, fun and fair people! The volunteer role was exactly as described: helping with reception, beds and the best part: the bar (I love staying at the bar and wellcoming guests... almost doesnt feel like volunteering). It was all very easy, and you have plenty of time to do your own stuff still :) The hostel is awesome and they even took me on tours and night outs (Ivan's band rock!). I highly reccomend this opp and cant wait to come back one day!!! Hvala my friends! :)

How to describe this amazing learning experience? Erwan and Brigitte are amazing people: very kind, fun and fair. I had the most amazing time with them, their kids and friends, other volunteers and the beautiful Bretagne! Boat rides, fishing, fireworks, events, concerts, deep conversations, shallow jokes, etc... all of that was part of this opp. The role itself was about construction and renovation, all very easy to learn and do, despite being very physical. I was able to improve my French, and can’t thank you all enough for everything: you guys have a true friend here, ok?! Merci! :)

Staying with the Hathroi Family was such a pleasant experience. Ajeet and his brother Ranjeet are amazing, clever and thoughful people, always with smiles in their faces... they even took me on tours for free! The Chillout Rooftop is such a great place to chill and get good food. Dorm with AC was perfect because this time of the year it gets so so hot (47o) lol I am very thankful for everything and hope to see this guys again! Absolutely reccomended for everyone to volunteer here!! :) "Yesterday, I born".... NAMASTÉ BROTHERS
