The Experience

Do you enjoy meeting other travellers from all over the world? Sitting on top of a hill in the middle of the beautiful Umbrian countryside in a village built over 1000 years ago, our hostel was once a school and marketplace back in the day and has been brought back to life. You can expect to help out with general maintenance of the hostel and socialise with guests. We expect clean, polite volunteers with team spirit and a positive attitude.

Volunteering at the hostel in Bevagna was an amazing experience that I highly recommend. The people I worked with were so nice and the location is incredible considering it looks over Assisi and its green valley. I stayed during the month of November so it was quiet but relaxing being in nature. Knowing some Italian before you go would help you enjoy your stay more. Thanks so much Duilio, Ago, Luci, Hope, Agustin, Brian and Amelia for making my stay great! Grazie mille!

I had a great time at the hostel!! Torre del Colle is situated in the most beautiful area and everyone in the borgo is so lovely. This is a perfect place to read, drink lots of coffee, eat good food, and recharge. However, it is very isolated - there are only 2 buses a day and it is 45 mins walk to the nearest town (with supermarket etc). It is also very quiet this time of year so there isn't much guest interaction. That means you will spend most of your time with fellow volunteers - which is great if you're working with amazing ones like I was, but definitely good to keep in mind!

The hostel was a wonderful experience full of kindness, love, and peace. I had a great volunteer community and loved spending time with them, but during the time period I was at OB (Oct to Nov) it was very quiet at the hostel which means your experience is dependent on the crew. I recommend having a good level of Italian or Spanish to communicate with the hosts and travelers, because at the time I was there it was mostly Italian families. It's perfect if you're looking for a relaxing and introspective break in the countryside. Overall it was a great first experience + I'm so grateful ❤️

The hostel will always hold such a special place in my heart❤️ Everyone on the staff is so kind and welcoming and I had such an amazing experience here with Duilio, Edwin and everyone else I worked with! Could not recommend this experience enough if you want to meet life long friends and really connect with yourself and the nature around you!

The hostel is truly a magical place! I couldn't have chosen a better place for my first worldpackers experience. Everyone is very open and welcoming, the month I spent there just flew by. The scenery is breathtaking, you'll truly get a sense of being a part of nature here. I would 100% recommend this place if you're looking to retreat and immerse yourself in nature but also if you want to connect to others and meet incredible and loving people. I'm incredibly thankful for my time at the hostel!
