My experience at the hostel was pleasant, the working hours are flexible and allow you to get to know the city. The schedule varies depending on each week and the tasks range from reception, making beds and helping in the bar. If you're a sociable person and willing to help, this is a good option for you… This experience allows you to meet people from around the world as well as interact with the locals.

Working at the hostel was one of my best experiences here in Europe. The staff is incredible and the host always makes sure that the volunteers are comfortable and safe. I 100% recommend the experience, the work is not hard at all and the hostel is very comfortable.

The hostel was a whole experience, get into the City and get to know Palermo and all the beaches around is the coolest thing, Hostel is really central of everything. The shifts and the work is easy if you're organized, the staff is always helping. I had the opportunity of work with another volunteers as well and we made a great team, such a fun time sharing and enjoying the city, we got to meet a lot of people from everywhere, and also learned a little more about Italian language and culture. All the hostel spaces are in a good condition.
