  • Description

    Description

    We have started a hostel for backpackers and bar/cafe in the middle of Durres city in the summer of 2014. The hostel is located in an old Italian villa from 1930, located on the main square. We have restored everything and are now up and running. But we always need some handy people who can help improve our place! It is the first and only hostel for backpackers in town.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Durres is a city that is not crowded with tourists like Tirana. It is calm, peaceful, and full of local people. It is a wonderful atmosphere to go on an evening stroll through city center, or along the boardwalk. The local fresh market is a wonderful experience. Local, organic, and also imported vegetables, fruit, dairy, spices, teas, beans, meat, etc. Durres is a good base for taking day trips to nearby towns of interest. There are several beaches close by. And small mountains around too. With an easy hike, you can get to a high point with amazing views of the sea and city.

    Hi!

    We need a few volunteers to help us out at our very special hostel during the next months.
    More and more guests are coming to beautiful Albania. We manage a hostel, and in the adjacent garden we have a (local) summer bar, open between June and October, with entrance on the main square.

    We can use helpers with a variety of skills. Most important reception help, keeping the guests happy and keep the place clean.

    Do you have any fix-it, handy-man, or construction abilities? We are looking into some changes in our bar, and help is needed! There are always few repairs to do as well, if you are willing and able.

    Do any of those sound good to you?

    We will provide you with accommodation in one of our comfortable dorms, wifi, use of the washing machine, and breakfast.
    Life here is relaxed, happy, and peaceful. and we should enjoy every aspect of life. The seaside is a couple of minutes from the hostel, too. And you can use the hostel bicycles.

    Let us know if you are interested!!
    We would prefer a commitment of 3/4 weeks stay. During the winter months it would be nice if you can stay even longer. It is helpful to have people who can notice things that could be improved and who can do things with their own volition.

    We expect you to help max 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    Let us know if you are interested!! We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    What else ...

    if you come to Durres, you can also enjoy your time on the beach, enjoy great seafood, spend some time in Tirana (only 30 min by bus), or play football on the beaches. It is also a great place to start to go for some day trips to south or north of Albania. Or go to Italy, the ferries leave/arrive here. It is is after Tirana the second largest city of Albania, and has a great Mediterranean vibe.
