The Vegan Academy hostel

Our hostel is more than a place to sleep, it is a small place with only three rooms so we give the guests a felling of staying in friends' house more than a hostel. This place is our baby, we keep it in a perfect condition and take care of all of the guests in the best way we can, always making sure that they get all the information needed and do not struggle with anything. Normally we spend at least half an hour with every guest arriving so we can acknowledge their plans and expectations so we can meet them and make the guest's experience amazing.

The voluunteers become a part of our family, we have hosted many of you guys already and it is the happiest part of this work that many of you became regular visitors and close friends to us. You will be involved in everything happening here, it is not only about working, you will share our life with us, expect to be dragged out to see the night life too =D

Mimi es una gran anfitriona!, desde el primer momento en que llegué ha sido muy amable, me ha invitado a comer a su casa con todo el staff para darme la bienvenida, siempre de buen humor, siempre con una actitud humilde y humanitaria, es muy buena persona y se puede trabajar muy bien con ella! en cuanto al trabajo se han respetado perfectamente las horas, he intercambiado idiomas y diversión con los huéspedes, he conocido distintas culturas. El trabajo no es para nada pesado, y ellos me dieron todas las comidas. Pude conocer muy bien Venecia! una experiencia increíble y muy recomendable!

Amazing experience!
I cannot talk about The Academy cause I was volunteering in Boutique.
About it can say the work is cool, the shift can change everyday but is always easy and Emma is the best boss ever
I was sleeping in the staff house, where there is no WiFi and mostly no signal for the 3G, but was great cause is not hot as the rest of the places and you have more privacy and space.
For days off you need to ask advance then they can manage to put someone to cover you, but in the work days you also have time enough to do a lot in Venice.
Best staff ever, I rightly recommend <3
