The Experience

We have a few volunteers staying at the hostel to socialise with the backpackers and help them make the most of their holiday and get the goods reviews that our hostel relies on! We also require help for general administration on reception and occasional cleaning. Equally important is being able to control the noise levels at night to avoid complaints from our neighbours.

The quality of the hostel is fantastic. The bathrooms are clean, the kitchen has all the cooking equipment and the atmosphere is great. I shared the room with the other two volunteers, so we had good space.
As a volunteer, I helped with very simple tasks such as: check in, check out, organization of the hostel...
During my stay, I also worked with other four other people who made all the difference in my life. Cesare and Giulia are sweet, creative and smart people. Tim and Minodora have an admirable sense of humor. Both of them have unique features that greatly facilitate team work.
Thanks

I had a wonderful time at Grand Hostel. Giulia and Cesare, the owners, Minodora, the cleaning lady, and Tim, the sexy English guy who works there were amazing. They were always willing to help you if you had any doubt about your tasks, which are very easy. They are very flexible with the shifts and make you feel comfortable. The hostel is in the city center and its facilities are very good. The volunteers I worked with were amazing and friendly.
I couldn't have asked for a better place to start my experience as a worldpacker!

I’ve said that so many times by now, but my experience at Grand Hostel Manin was the best I could have.
From Cesare and Giulia (the owners) who are extremely thoughtful, generous and kind, to the other amazing volunteers who made it feel like one big family - we were always helping each other with the tasks (which are easy to do within the working hours), and then finally, the hot english man Tim who’s just the cherry on top and Minidora (the cleaning lady) who is probably the candle!
Other than that if you like nature, hiking and swimming, you wont be disappointed to stay at La Spezia ;)

For sure was the best decision I made. The hostel is amazing, they have a perfect structure for travelers, with great accommodation, an equipped kitchen and a friendly environment . Cesare and Giulia (the owners) are the kindest Italians ever, always taking care of guests and the staff! And also there are the most attractive English man that is part of Manin's family, as well :P
The tasks in general are easy and the staff is always helping each other to keep the hostel clean, organized and with happy guests!
I'll always be thankful for the amazing time I'm having here!

Giulia, Cesare, Tim, Fabio and Gian Marco were so nice and generous. The hostel is perfect if you want to meet people but still live in a quiet environment. I could not have asked for a better first experience. :)
