Hello everyone! We're Dan, Sam and Jason, 3 young world travellers from England, USA and Switzerland. With over 16 years of combined travel experience, hitchhiking and couchsurfing in over 60 countries, we travelled with a dream to open a space where travellers and locals could share, experience, and learn from each other.
After years of hard work and dedication, we made that dream a reality. In November 2016, we opened a hostel which evolved quickly into a homely social and educational hub in Bucharest, built on principles of learning, growing and community.
18 months later, we opened up another location in the city inside a beautiful Victorian house, which is also the headquarters of our NGO and the organisation associated with this Workaway profile. Our NGO's mission is to promote education, community service, cultural exchange and community between Bucharest and any traveler coming through the city.
A nice location just 5 minutes walk away from anything you need and the heart of the student area, we have a beautiful ivy garden, we host / run workshops, events & other social gatherings, and we focus on giving everyone who visits us a memorable experience.

We're making improvements every single day. It's a beautiful space where nice experiences happen naturally alongside inspiring people who come and stay with us from all different countries around the world.
As hosts, we take life proactively, not passively. We have an abundant mentality, and appreciate others who are positive and bring enthusiasm to any activity.
All three of us have very different yet compatible personalities, and we're excited to mesh, teach and learn from you as well.
Our community is the strongest part of our vision and we look forward to welcoming you.
Thanks for reading, and we hope to hear from you soon!

We have fallen in love with Bucharest and Romania, and know the place very well now. We're also happy to share our favorite restaurants, cafes, markets, parks, free things to do, and hidden gems to explore.
There's loads of sights, parks, restaurants and bars in Bucharest - it's a very lively, exciting city and everything is reasonably priced. There is an efficient metro, bus and tram network in the city that will get you anywhere you need to go. There are also many local markets in Bucharest, selling fresh fruits and vegetables at very cheap prices. If you love relaxing, there's also a swimming/spa complex just north of the city called Therme which even has a sauna with a cinema, - it's an absolute must visit!
Beyond Bucharest, Romania has a lot to offer. Take a short trip north into Transylvania and you'll find lush nature and mountains. Take a short trip east of Bucharest and you'll find the Black Sea, and some of the world's most beautiful untouched beaches. Romania really is a hidden gem! Feel free to ask if you need more information, and we look forward to hearing from you!
We like to keep fit, and we exercise together almost every morning as a group. If you want to get fit, bring your running shoes and let's do this!
