Volunteering here was my first solo traveling experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better time! Effie is an awesome host, she’s super welcoming, made me feel very comfortable and was always willing to help me out whenever I had a question.
Her family is super nice as well and her son is seriously the sweetest.
My tasks were exactly as agreed, I did the reception work in the morning and looked after the son, which was always fun.
The hostel in general is very cool, I met lots of other travelers and the location is great.
Would 100% recommend volunteering here!

It was an amazing experience. Take care of Allan, Effie's son remind me the time I used to work in a education business and he is so cute and a smart boy. Help in the hostel's reception helps me improve my English skills and be connected with the others travelers. Effie is really nice and kind with all of us.

The experience was amazing! I learned a lot with this job in the bar, because I have never worked in this environment before and the manager taught me many things and she had a lot of patience! I recommend this experience to everyone! I really love it!
