The experience in was much shorter than planned because I had covid. However the hostel is nice and most of the people who work there too. I would suggest this volunteering for people who wants to develop their skills in the hostel industry. I felt that you can learn a lot there, but if you want to have fun and have a good time I would do it only during summer time :D. After all, I had a short, but pleasant time in Zagreb.

Dear Tulio, thank you for a short but sweet opportunity to meet you :) We hope our paths cross again, and until then we wish you all the best! Cheers!



Travelers need to know a few things here:
1 - I could actually bet that no other place will make you feel as welcomed and comfortable as Valentina makes you at Swanky. She makes sure you have a total of 0 problems throughout the whole experience.
2- the other volunteers/staff were AMAZING and were always around to help you and make you feel at home too
3- job hours were always respected, and even when they needed some extra help/hours they would pay for them.
4- The tasks were very easygoing !
5- You will leave wanting more, of Swanky and Zagreb! Thank you SO MUCH for everything!

So grateful for you and your friendship! We're sending you all the kisses and hugs from Zagreb and see you soon <3



My experience at Swanky Mint was very good. A wonderful hostel, with organised and defined tasks, engaging staff and amazing structure. I love my room and the bathroom inside it! The shifts could be hard work or quite relaxing, depending on the schedule and what the hostel needs from you. But all doable, with fun and space for creativity. They have allowed me to use my best skills and were always opened for new ideas. I def recommend Swanky to anyone. A special kiss to Valentina, she's just an awesome supervisor! \o/

I wanna thank to all the people I met in Swanky. Most of them were friendly and made my stay fun and comfortable👍 I had a great time cooking at the super kitchen at the hostel :) Also I had a super fun time while working with the girls at reception and the guys in the bar. :) Pam, Philip, Anitaaa, Neno, Vale, Ante, Katy, and many others I cant remember right now. The tasks are not complicated, the schedule allows to do other activities. And if your native language is spanish you ll be surprised at noticing how many people in the staff speak some spanish (Telenovelas vocabulary jaj) Gracias!
