We look for enthusiast, positive social travelers, to join our exchange Help&Stay program. An important information: the hostel's activities are suspended until a later date - due to the covid19 emergency !!! We are a no profit organization's involved into the developing of social tourism, farming and cultural projects. Thanks to travelers and volunteers from all over the world our Family is special, top-friendly and seriously involved in the aim... to create and share with the local community of friends and global community of backpackers a unique, top-friendly, global and local experience In addition to our hostel and farm activities we activate and develop social tourism, cross-cultural, anti-racist projects here at Zagarolo and also in Milano, where we still develop projects thru our Patchanka Network organisation, the place where originally we met and began our Wiki Hostel Family adventure, on 2001 … but that’s another story …

“We are a passionated crew, rated as WORLD TOP FRIENDLY by customers like you”... Welcome we are the Wiki Hostel Crew : staff + local and international volunteers … … plus our Wiki cats and Lola our super sweet black lab! Together with the Crew of our Farming Organic Project Pantasema we work hard to give our best to you our guest & friend. We hope you will join us & the intercultural activities having with us and the other fellow customers a real Top-Friendly experience Regarding the accommodation, the volunteers sleep in a dependence dedicated to them and other staff members, never more than 2 people per room, the beds are the same as in the hostel. The rooms are cleaned weekly by the cleaning staff, spare sheets are provided weekly and even if requested free towels. The rooms are equipped with toilet, bidet and sink, the showers are located in another room with a special dressing room to offer the right privacy. The wifi at wikihostel is not guaranteed in any room, nor the guests, nor the staff, only in all the common areas: high-speed wifi. Breakfast is the same offer to hostel guests, at the hall lounge, lunch is prepared the day before by the hostel cheff which takes into account intolerances and preferences, all !!! We are struggling to please the vegans, but we still do our best. Then the lunch is placed in boxes in accordance with Italian hygiene standards (we have an external company that takes care of food safety and HACCP self-control plans) and stored in a fridge dedicated to the staff. The staff then has available both gas fires and microwave ovens, crockery, glasses, cutlery, condiments, bread. The fridge can also be used to store the volunteer's own products. As for the dinners on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the same as lunches, plus the buffet dedicated to the guests from whom the volunteers eat anyway. Monday pasta party, Wednesday social farm dinner, Thursday creeps, Friday pizza party, Sunday bbq or polenta. All for free for the volunteers, we all eat together: crew, guests, volunteers when the kitchen is to eat! Volunteers have a 50% discount on water and coffee and 20% on everything else at the bar. All the experience events at the hostel are free for volunteers and external ones, such as wine tours or hiking with lunch, guests pay 20 euros a head for some volunteers for free because they help others if they want 12 euros. We offer free shuttle for train station. At the end of the period we try to organize a party for everyone, for share the certification for the volunteer. No free laundry, but we have verry close to the hostel one laundromat, and the manager is our friend... Just some info ;)

Excelente experiencia, me ayudo a estar mas conectado conmigo mismo, a valorar el día a día, ser agradecido, y con las actividades recupere el sentido del trabajo sobrevalorado en el buen sentido ,con un buen fin......mas que agradecido, si quieren desconectar estar en un lindo lugar de Italia y tener todo cerca para recorrer es ideal...hermoso Zagarolo

I had an amazing time at wiki! I got to know people from different places and became my family really fast.
The task are really easy to perform and the schedules are perfect for you to enjoy a free morning or evening.
The hostel is perfectly located for you to enjoy Rome and some other interesting towns and cities around.
Luca was always nice to me and concern about how I was doing while being there.
Thanks Wiki!

The hostel is an incredible experience, it is what you are looking for when you apply as a volunteer , meeting people from all over the world, learning from culture, making friends and eating a lot of pizza :)
The tasks are very simple, you work 5 hours per day on a very flexible schedule. A relaxed atmosphere, The staff is wonderful, they give their best to make your experience better and better.
Many of their guests apply for being volunteers , that says everything!! it's up to you to take advantage of the best of the hostel.
I absolutely recommend you to apply.
Thank you so much Wiki💕

Hostel muy lindo, ambientes y actividades muy buenas, lo recomendaría a los turistas en sus viajes definitivamente. Sin embargo el ambiente como voluntario es distinto, la comida que se nos brinda sólo era pasta o arroz y no es nada nutritivo, por otro lado, el trato de los managers no es el mejor, se siente un ambiente tenso y poco agradable.
