  • Description


    Hi! We are Matthijs and Eveline, and we run a small hostel (5 beds) and campsite (max 15 places) in a traditional village in Maramures, northern Romania.

    Moved from the Netherlands to Romania, we bought an old traditional wooden farm and converted it to a hostel and campsite. We are located in Maramures, which is famous for its traditions, nature and small scaled agriculture. The village where we live, Breb, is a labyrinth of small paths, small farms fields and forests. And the people are among the most friendliest you will ever meet!

    You can hike and bike and explore the hills and mountains and of course the beautiful village of Breb and its surroundings, play with our cats or our dog Maan or our 7 year old daughter and 4 year old boy. Or just relax in one of our hammocks, reed a book and enjoy the views, sun and village life!

  • Help


    For July and August 2020 we are looking for 1 or 2 helpers (preferably a couple/friends), who can help us with mainly cleaning and tidying our hostel, bathrooms and small outside kitchen. You don't need to work a lot; the cleaning part takes place at the end of the morning and will take no more than 1,5-2 hours (6 days a week). So this leaves you with lots of free time to be active in the area.

  • Accommodation


    We do have a nice tent, including matrasses, blankets and all where you can stay the whole period. You can use the kitchen in the hostel for cooking or our small outside kitchen. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer you any food, but you will receive some pocket money.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Because you don't have to work a lot, you will have lots of free time to discover the beautiful village of Breb, hike in the surrounding fields and mountains, and explore other parts of traditional Maramures and even do a day trip to Ukraine. Of course you can also relax in our big garden in one of our hammocks, or do some reading, writing, painting or whatever you like while enjoying the views all the way to Ukraine.
