Working and volunteering


In Skopje, most of the hostels are run by a mixture of volunteers and paid local staff. Many volunteers are travellers, passing through for a few weeks. Volunteers help out around the hostel in exchange for a bed and the inside track on local life. The same set-up exists at Robinson Sunset House just outside Ohrid. Call around or email to enquire about positions.
