Its a relaxed hostel right in the heart of Genova, with all you need nearby – train station, supermarkets, the coast etc. The hosts are friendly, welcoming, flexible and always willing to fill you in on what Genova has to offer. Work is fairly easy and while I worked here I basically had half of the week free to myself. The accommodation was simple but sufficient, I truly felt right at home after a week or so. Genova itself had plenty to offer but its location makes it easy to travel to many other cities like Milan, Pisa, Florence etc. Stayed here for 2months and would totally recommend it.<3

Victoria is a cozy, friendly and relaxed place to volunteer at. The people in charge are always available if you need them and they are flexible and respectful. The job is simple and clear. Couldn't stay as long as planned for personal reasons and they accepted my arrival before the agreed date and I'll always be super grateful for it because I didn't have nowhere else to go.
Totally recommend working with the hosts in charge of Victoria.
Thank you very much for your hospitality and I hope to be able to visit one day! Happy 2020.

Great experience from start to finish. I appreciated how hands on the owners were. With small road blocks owners were communicative and willing to understand and collaborate. Acceptance for creative freedom and willingness to take your ideas for the hostel really made this place stand out!

It was a amazing experience, I learned a lot and I also had a lot of fun in the same time. The schedule is flexibel and the owners really respected our work hours. The job is easy but you need to be resposible.

I met people in Victoria who I will keep for the rest of my life. All the owners are friendly and helpful, I hope to see them again. Thanks guys.

Overall, I had a great time working here for two months. The hostel is well located, big, beautiful (+ awesome balcony!) and full of good vibes, the owners are friendly, welcoming and fun to work with. The friendships formed with the other volunteers are unforgettable. The work is demanding during the high season but always enjoyable, and it's a great way to get some work experience while discovering Genova and the gorgeous region of Liguria ;)
I would 100% recommend the hostel and this experience, grazie mille to Marco, Matteo, Manu and Giulio <3 Un abbraccio e a presto!
