Il Nosadillo

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.

It was amazing! The best first experience to have with worldpackers and if you have never been to a hostel like me. The people were kind, caring, respectful and fun.

The hostel is beautiful. Tancredi (Manager) is an angel and Caterina (The owner/ Manager) is a lovely and exellent businesswoman who has made Nosadillo the best Hostel in Bologna.

Augustin and Maite (fellow volunteers) were the best company I could ask for.

I wish them all, all the best and can't wait to see them again.

My experience in Nosadillo Hostel was amazing, I felt like at home, I really could enjoy with the staff and volunteers in the Italian culture and I practiced a lot my italian. It is also a good opportunity to meet guests from very near, because the hostel is cozy and small. The tasks are not at all heavy and are enjoyable. Bologna is also a wonderfull place for going out and hanging around. Thanks a lot to everybody Nosadillo :)!!!

Volunteering in Nosadillo was one of the best experiences that I had in my life.
The hostel it very cozy and Caterina e Tancredi are very kind and friendly so I felt like if I was at home.
The work is easy and flexible and it was a great opportunity to practice and improve my English, Italian and French meeting people from all over the world.
The hostel is located in the center of Bologna, which is a gorgeous city, and also Bologna is near to a lot of wonderful cities, I had the chance to go to Florence, Venice, Pisa, Verona and Roma on my days off.
Grazie mille per tutto Nosadillo ❤️

It was the best experience ever! The hostel is very near the city center so I could visit all the amazing places Bologna has to offer just by foot, Caterina and Tancredi make sure you feel like home and you will feel very comfortable at the hostel. In your free days you will have the chance to go to nearby cities like Venecia, Verona, Florence, Milano, etc. I super recommend this experience, grazie mille Nosadillo ❤️

I stayed at Nosadillo for 4 weeks and as my first experience as volunteer I would say it was an incredible experience. I met many people from all around the world. I recommend for those who wanna practice languages, I could improve my English and also Italian, I really enjoyed. The work was not difficult and we had flexibility about tasks and time. I had a lot of free time to go out and walk around in Bologna. I would like to say thank you to Caterina, Tancredi, Diego e Mirza, I have learn a lot with them and I have spent good times at Nosadillo.
