Probably the most social and fun hostel you'll ever be in . The atmosphere is just great , people are suuuuuuper social ,staff , other volunteers, guests, just everybody🙈🔥 . People cook together, make movie nights, game nights , and usually go out together after
wards.

The work was actually much less at my time and the work ours and shifts are very comfortable and can also be interchanged with other volunteers .
Theres always time to make trips between shifts and explore the outside of Sofia .

Theres probably much more I could say but I you should discouver some things yourself 🙈😂👌

These weeks were some of the best weeks of my life. They were a mixture of meeting amazing people from all over the world, experiencing local culture, enjoying nature, having fun… All the volunteers were super nice and friendly, and the manager of the hostel (Slavyan) is one of the most amazing persons I have ever met. It is incredible how much I learned from him, a few hours with him is worth more than a thousand books. The tasks were easy and enjoyable, and sharing the hostel life with people from all over the world is just amazing. I will never forget my family at Smart Hostel Sofia.
