Because we are in the centre of Bologna, in a great location, close to the main square and grocery stores. We are a small and cosy hostel where it is very easy to meet all the guests and feel at home. Volunteering here is a great opportunity to exercise your creativity, share ideas and learn new things, including lots of nice recipes.... we cook a lot here!
My name is Caterina, I am from Bologna. I consider myself a nice and active person. My mission is to create a nice environment for all our guests and fix what is not working well, solve all the problems. We are a small hostel and I have only an employee, Tancredi who also loves challenges and he mostly helps me with social media, our website, but also some random manual tasks. Here the atmosphere is super informal and we are used to laughing a lot, cooking and eating together with our volunteers.
my time at the nosadillo hostel was great, it was an unexpected trip to bologna that overpass my expectatives.
I could meet the bologna daily life stile ,Tancredi one of the members of the staff show me the best places to eat and to drink a real Italian appetizer, also Caterina the owner she help me a lot when I had problems with my flight and I needed to be some days more.
the work its easy, and the hours are very flexibles but the best thing its to know new people every day and discover the city with them.
I really recomend the experience.
thanks for all!!

I had a great time in Il Nosadillo, Caterina and Tancredi were very welcoming from day 1, and were always available.
the tasks at the hostel were easy, I had time to go out and meet new people, eat lots of local food and feel like I was part of Bologna.
il Nosadillo was my first open door to come to Italy, and I will forever be greatful for this jorney and the much of Italian I have learned.

La experiencia fue muy buena!! en el hostel se vive un ambiente muy familiar, está súper bien ubicado y las habitaciones y espacios comunes son cómodos y agradables. Caterina y Tancredi están siempre disponibles para cualquier consulta o sugerencia y con ganas de hacer cosas para mejorar la estadía en el hostel. Lo recomiendo para una estancia en Bologna, conocer la cultura local y compartir experiencias! a mí me ayudó mucho a mejorar mi italiano :)

This has been a great experience. I've had the opportunity to meet a lot of locals, practice my Italian and get really immersed in their culture. Above all that, Caterina has a great atmosfere in the hostel that motivates us to exercise our creativity by sharing our ideas and good will to create a cozy environment.
