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 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.

Definitely i'd like to volunteering here again!!!

The operation they have in Venice is really cool and the job is fair. You work as housekeeper and receptionist depending on the demand and where they place you. Mimi and Emma are kind to every kind and make the experience be great. I had some issues with the owner but Mimi solved in the best way <3 If you are fab you should come aswell because I will come back asap to see the guys and have fun once more!!

Working in this place and with this staff was amazing, it was my first experience with worldpackers and it was awesome, not only bcs off the friends that i made there, but also for all the things that i learned, including eating/cooking vegan food. Thanks so much Mimi and everyone for this opportunity, the job was really easy and good and we still had time to explore and get lost in Venice. I'll miss this!!
