This was my first WorldPackers experience and Karma was so welcoming, helpful and chatty for my whole stay. The city is small but is a great location for day trips to other towns and seeing Sicily. The hostel is central but still quiet and clean. Unfortunately, there was a lack of training and the owner did not seem to have much respect or care for the volunteers - he complained that we asked questions and was unresponsive to our calls, which left guests disappointed and us in an awkward position. Overall it was a good experience but better communication and organization would be ideal☀️

It was a very positive experience, the hostel is familiar and cozy, the environment thanks to Carma, Gabriele and Diletta made the experience very comfortable, also they were very flexible and helpful with shifts and my needs!
Thank you all so much, it was an amazing experience, I hope to come back soon🥰

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Eco Hostel - Gabriele, Karma and Diletta were a pleasure to work for! The hostel is super nice to stay at, the work relatively easy and Catania is a colourful city!
Their profile is a little out dated so not all the info is correct (E.g volunteer room, hours, etc), but they cleared those things up upon my arrival and I didn’t mind the changes.
If you’re looking for a good place to volunteer then I can definitely recommend them!

I Loved staying at Eco hostel, i‘m really grateful for how Gabriele, Karma and Diletta treated me, they are truly lovely people and the Hostel is super cute and the work is easy. There are just Some things i want Future Travellers to know: you are provided a free breakfast, but not a lunch and Dinner, instead they say you‘ll get a 50€ voucher for Lidl every week, although i only got 3 , not 4. You will be sharing a room with the other Volunteers, but it is really small and has got no windows so be aware of the Heat! And you have to work more than 32 Hours a week, but overall i still Loved it!

Eco hostel was my first experience with worldpacker and it was amazing. The hostel is cozy and you feel welcome as soon you get there. I felt at my place the whole stay and the owners were really sweet and funny, I had good conversation with them! The job is easy and you can easily meet a lot of people all around the world. I would definitely have stayed longer than a month! Thank you so much for this wonderful experience!
