Gianni House

Working in our hostel spiritually enriches you. You will make new friends, know people from all over the world and learn how to approach guests in the best way possible! Moreover in exchange for work you will obviously have your free time to enjoy Sicily, Mt. Etna, Taormina and all the beautiful places Sicily offers.

I'm Gianni, Gianni House's manager: it is a family run hostel located in the area of Giardini-Naxos/Taormina. Our aim is to create the meeting point is Sicily, that's why we are searching for people from all over the world who can help us in our project: we deeply believe that anyone of you could be helpful to us and could add something special to our hostel! Volunteers will be treated as they're part of the family, they will have accomodation and a typical Italian breakfast included. Moreover the atmosphere here is really friendly so it will be easy to make friends with the family, the staff members and all the guests. Some of the mansions include welcoming guests at their arrival giving them tips about the places they can visit, helping them in case they need suggestions, showing them the room where they'll stay and the hostel, and finally cleaning the common areas.

My experience at Gianni House was amazing! The vibe from the place, the rest of the staff, the owners, everything made me feel so confortable!
Regarding the job, the task were very easy; reception for check-in/check-out and cleaning of the common areas. The place is very well located! In a beautiful neighbourhood very close to the beach, next to Taormina, and very well connected with bus and train station.
But the most lovely thing from this experience was meeting the owners, Gianni and Graziella! Staying at Gianni House was finding my home at Sicily 💚.
Thank you so much!

I had an incredible time at Gianni’s house. As my first volunteering experience, I could not be more grateful to have done it at this place. The location is awesome; I loved Gole dell’Alcantara and the secret beach! The owners and other volunteers were great! Grazie per tutto, Graziella e Gianni, è stato benissimo!

I had a great time at gianni house. Gianni and his wife graziella are super welcoming and caring. The tasks at the reception are quite easy to learn but it’s still really important to be reliable. Everything will be explained to you and you get plenty of time to learn. The beach is really close and it's the perfect location for public transport (train & bus). Me, the other volunteers and even guests had so much fun. I can only recommend gianni house. Thank you for having me gianni and graziella. Grazie 🫶🏻
