Lobby Collective Hostel

Our hostel is a place for rookie poets, unknown artists, digital nomads, late night pizza holders and single moms. A place where travelers from all over the world meet to cook, drink, work, sleep and have fun. All in a family atmosphere and at fair prices. This former executive building of the Bertolli factory is much more than just a hostel to sleep in. The living spaces, flexible coworking workstations, the kitchen where you can dine and socialize, and 60 beds in private and shared rooms, make our hostel a place where something always happens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once inside, you never have to go home

Hi, I'm Alessio and I'm the manager of a hostel in the city of Lecce, in the central heart of the region called Salento. This is by far the most popular part of Puglia, surrounded by the sea and breathtaking natural landscapes. We are experiencing an increase in tourism for culture, history and typical food. In our hostel we mainly welcome young people, pilgrims and tourists looking for authentic experiences. We need you to expand our volunteer family and offer absolute involvement

I loved this experience!! We all cooked a lot together learned about local holidays and went to all the beaches around. The work wasn't too hard or challenging and the team feeling was very strong. We really felt like a small family.

Experiência muito enriquecedora no Lobby Collective Hostel! O hostel fica a 3 km do centro histórico de Lecce e é uma excelente oportunidade de troca de hospedagem por trabalho na região de Salento. Minhas atividades laborais eram pela manhã de 7:30 às 12:30 e à tarde e à noite estava livre. Levei meu computador para trabalhar com meu trabalho online e trabalhava na sala de leitura. A internet do hostel é ótima, as instalações são todas muito modernas e o hostel tem uma história incrível, era uma fábrica de azeite de oliva há seculos atrás. Aos fins de semana viajava para as cidades vizinhas.

I had a great time at Lobby Collective! This was my first volunteering experience and I stayed for 1 month. The work is easy and you have a lot of free time to explore Puglia. The hostel is very modern and clean with lots of space to chill out. It's also a great way to learn some Italian, Spanish or English. Alessio, Antonio, and Maria are so welcoming and you really become a little family with the other volunteers. I would definitely recommend to stay during the summer months if you can. Overall it was a great experience and I can't wait to visit again in the future!

Prepare-se para comer pasta e tomar vinho todos os dias! Os funcionários viraram uma familia longe de casa, sei que sempre terei um pedacinho do meu coração em Puglia, e agradeço demais pelo carinho. Sobre o voluntariado: o trabalho foi super tranquilo, era basicamente preparar a mesa do café, limpar e arrumar as camas, não teve passeios, coisa que senti falta.. e como eu fui fora de temporada, em outubro, não haviam mais ônibus na cidade e para ir para as praias e outras cidades era preciso ir de trem (levava 1h pra mais) ent prepare-se para alguns dias só abraçar il dolce far niente 😂
