The Experience

We have guests from all over the world, so it can get busy on the summer season, but its mainly calm. We have 3 shifts during the day, and we can arrange the schedule in a weekly basis. Your main tasks will be welcoming and helping the new guest with the check in and directions in the city, providing them the amenities of the hostel, maps, etc. A little bit of cleaning and preparing breakfast. Not hard work at all! Come and check it!

I had a good time at the hostel and Palermo is a great city! The other volunteers where amazing and luckily because only volunteers work there and I didn't see the owner that much. the hostel is not the most pretty and comfortable Hostel i've seen but it's a really social place and I enjoyed it a lot so if you're willing to meet people and don't have to high comfort standarts i definitely recommend.

I had a great time in Palermo! The other Volunteers were very very nice and welcoming. To be honest I didn't see francesco as much as I expected and quickly realized that this Hostel is mostly run by us Volunteers. Despite that, I had a great time and met lots of very interesting people from all over the world. I would recommend this hostel if you are looking for a great experience in a city! Palermo is a wonderful city with a beautiful old town and also beautiful nature around. I am very glad to have chosen this as my first destination with Worldpackers.

Was a good experience, there's a lot of flexibilty but you need to be committed and organized to make it work, the other volunteers were like a family to me so that was the best part. Thanks Francesco!

I had one of the most exciting experiences of my life. In Palermo, every day brought a new bar, restaurant, or cool street to explore, and the hostel guests were always up for joining in. As for the host, Francesco was incredible, incredibly welcoming, and made me feel at home. Regarding the property, being an old building, it needs some repairs, but it's still a place you can call home. This is the volunteer opportunity for those looking to exercise their responsibility, as the shifts are quite active, and it's necessary to stay focused during your shift to not disrupt the one following.

Time spent in Palermo was unforgettable. This city is really special, you have much time to enjoy all Sicilia. Owners of the hostel are very friendly and caring people, which you can always talk about everything. Tasks is very easy and doesn't took to much time. This place definitely gonna stay in my heart ❤️
