The hostel is run by me( Andrej) a local and Catherine (French Canadian from Montreal). We are a couple, who just welcomed our first child. We live just outside of Maribor on a small hill surrounding the city.
We like to live spontanouosly and enjoy the little moments because its them that make the life worth living.
Helping with Tourists
cultural excange is here on the highest level because we try to give a good feeling and vibes to the tourists of the world so they feel good and welcome in our facilities to try to ewen straighten the holliday feeling they are in and to represent the coltural area we are in, which includes wine and sport.
so, we try to incorage them to explore the world of wine and wine colture through the degostations on surounding hills weather on foot or by bike.
Maribor is sorounded by samller and bigger hils, with a river deviding it in half, which calls to explore its untouched nature, watterfals and thick old forests that strech all to the alps. its unik cuisine just calls for trying the best of the meeting point of Balkan cuisine and the western cuisine whitch made interesting meals mixing both coltures.
so, be fit ;0)
Greeting tourists and check ins/outs ect., general cleaning of the rooms and common areas… and most important- hanging out with tourists to give them a good vibe.

we have an extra appartment in the same building, one floor above the hostel. its completely empty( no sharing with other people) and fully furnished. it has a nice balcony and a city view. it has its own kitchen and bathroom.
all the food Will be provided from a home garden of the owners.
for the free time the helpers can enqoy the old center of Maribor ( 2 min walk) and get to feel the Balkan roots of its inhabitants, meaning taking time and have a seat for a coffe. for sure you need to experience the active life style of the people in this area also which could go from hiking the mountains, riding bikes on the hills, taking advantage of the natural hot springs of the area or go for a canu/sup ride on the river.
