Hugo is an amazing person, always happy to help you!
He is really willing, professional, responsible and funny.
If you are looking for a volunteer he is perfect :)
Ciao Hugo I hope see you soon



I was able to improve my Italian skills and for that I consider my time here well worth it. The host himself was welcoming but there were a few details off regarding the team dynamic that weren't properly addressed and that made my stay difficult this time around. I would consider that communication needs to be worked on, there were plenty of situations when issues with other volunteers could have been addressed soon but instead situations escalated bc of this lack of responsibility from leadership. Apart from that the volunteer experience was fun and the tasks and hours were as agreed.

I loved it! From the day I arrived, they were so friendly and welcoming. The most thing I enjoyed was meeting and exchanging experiences with new people in the hostel. I would love to do it again someday :)

The hostel located in a busy city of Catania, is a place where travellers find themselves like at home. The vibe, the atmosphere and the friendliness of the place and its people make the hostel one of the best ones I've been too. Work is simple and not overwhelming. Everyone knows what their responsibilities are and schedules are flexible. Perfect for the ones who want to explore the island more. I recommend this place cause it really gives an experience of being part of an intercultural family, which hangs out together and eats delicious Italian food.

Alicja stayed with us for one month and she brought all the joy to the hostel with her energy and smile. She was a professional about her tasks, easy going in her interactions with the guests and other volunteers, chatty as someone knows what she is talking about, and a responsible person. I hoped a volunteer like her has stayed more so it was hard to say goodbye but the door of urbanpop is always open for her.
