The Experience

We need energetic and multilingual people with positive attitudes, who listen well, can take the initiative and do not have to be constantly told what to do. We need people who clean what is dirty, fix what is broken and give us a hand when they see we are struggling. We need you to be flexible with your working time and be ready to help. You can't be afraid of cleaning/fixing/painting/cooking/improvising and learning.

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

Mimi is the best host. Lovely, placent and funny. She's so easy going.
Tasks are easy and of course Venice is a magical place.
The team was the best team. Everyone is so friendly and helpful.
I REALLY felt like home at hostel and in Venice.

About the host

Host%402x Top Host

This host receives a lot of worldpackers and has a high average rating.

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 ...
