UrbanPop has become a little home away from home. Big thanks to Salvo and Reza as they were always so kind and caring( and omg so funny). The hostel has a great location in the city, enough free days or flexible shifts to be able to explore Catania or the island itself. Not super social, but can be at times, so both a good place to relax and meet people if you're up for it. The work is demanding but nothing one cant do after a days training. Overall an incredible experience, cant wait to return some day! xx

This was my first worldpacker experience and I had such an amazing time! The working hours were respected and you get plenty of time off to explore Catania and visit nearby towns! You are expected to work and clean to a high level, which was expected, and all the tasks were explained well in detail! Reza is very hardworking and Salvo is one of the kindest people I've met which helped to make the hostel feel like a home away from home! There are also loads of great and cheap restaurants and bars really close which was great. I miss the hostel and all the wonderful people I met there already!

My experience in UrbanPop Hostel was amazing! I spent more than 2 months here and I loved every moment of it. The place is very clean, it's a big hostel and full of travelers. But at the same time, you can have privacy and silence, which for me was wonderful. I met amazing people and have good memories of all the time I spent here. Reza and Salvo are wonderful hosts and I would definitely come back here. The work is well explained and easy. I will miss you guys and of course the cakes hahaha! Thanks for everything!

I had a very positive experience at the hostel. This was my first time volunteering on worldpackers and I wouldn't have wanted it to be anywhere else. Expectations about the job were set clearly, as you recieve a check list to work with, and the hours were respected. I had lots of fun working at the hostel and exploring the island on my days off. Salvo and Reza have been wonderful hosts and made me feel welcome at all times. Over all I had a awesome time at the hostel and definitely want to come back!

I had the best time volunteering for the hostel, the expectations were set out clearly and the hours were respected, and there was nothing incredibly challenging. It's in a really central location too, and the days off allow for you to explore heaps of Sicily. Salvo and Reza were the best hosts and so kind to me during my stay, I was truly sad to leave, but I will definitely be back! I really couldn't recommend it enough ❤️
