Grand hostel Manin

The hostel is in the heart of the city, walking distance from the train station, the harbour, restaurants and pubs. The city is strategically located, you can easily reach 5 Terre within few minutes by train, small nice villages on the seaside and beaches in 30 min by bus; also Pisa and Genova can be visited in a one day trip ( it takes between 1/1'30 h to get there by train) and Florence is about 2,5 hours by train.

Of course we'll suggest you many other places less known but that worth a visit. In your free time you can explore the surroundings, hang out with guests ( the best part of this job is you'll meet people from all over the world!)

My name is Giulia, and I am 35 italian girl from La Spezia, a town in the north west of Italy, just beside 5 Terre, between Pisa and Genova. In 2016 my brother and I opened a hostel in my hometown, since that time we're looking for some help. We're young and easygoing, both travelled and lived abroad; we used to stay in hostels while travelling and I volunteered in 3 different hostels in Spain during one year, so we know what to expect from a volunteer but also his/her needs. Volunteers get a bed in a mixed bed dorm and breakfast. They can use all our facilities for free (kitchen, free ingredients for cooking, laundry, wifi, computer, etc.). Italy has so many things you can discover! First of all: food :-) We'll suggest you local food you cannot miss and teach you how to cook it if you want, as well as help you with language practise if you're up to learn italian :-) And of course you'll have the chance to meet people from everywhere! All we ask in exchange is for you to help us in reception, cleaning and organizing some social events with our guests. Although it's not strictly necessary, we give priorities to people that speak fluent spanish, beside english

First experience with WorldPackers and I don't regret it at all. I'm really happy that I have the opportunity to work with Giulia and her team, everyone was so helpfull, great volunteering experience if you want to discover one of the most beautiful parts of Italy (Cinque Terre) <3 The hostel is AMAZING, located in the city center, the tasks were more than fair, we had a lot of free time for hiking, beach days and discover the surroundings. Thank you again Giulia, Tim, Male and Gabriele for being so kind and helpfull. I totally recommend the experience. 10/10

I had the best time volunteering at Grand Hostel Manin. Giulia, Tim, Malen and Gabriele not only are always making sure the guests have a great time but also the volunteers. The hours are pretty easy and the job itself is very pleasant. It's a great place to make new friends, enjoy the local culture and explore the beautiful surroundings. If you're looking for a genuine Italian experience this is the place. I'm so glad I was welcomed with open arms. I'd recommend it 100%.

I worked every other day of the week so 28hr/ week per average. Cleaning bathrooms, setting up breakfast, keeping it stocked, and then helping with aperitifs, talking to guests, helping with dinner. We stayed in an apartment 8 min walk away. The big downside was no internet. Besides that it was as expected: bed, kitchen, shower, the usual. Giulia is the nicest person ever and so accommodating as well as flexible and kind. The rest of the staff is amazing and kind too. The cinque Terre is beautiful. Not a lot of nightlife or activities but definitely nice for connecting with nature and relaxin

Giulia and Tim were great hosts. It was my first experience and I got a great chance to learn the ropes in a friendly and socialable environment. I can't recommend this place more for someone trying hostel volunteering for the first time, they made it a truly great experience. Thanks so much!!
