It was 40 days that I consider the best I had, I found a second family on the staff, I made great friends, I gave a lot of laughs, the work is very quiet, during the day and at night, they explain everything right, the accommodation is good, more than recommend it.
Grazie di tutto, elefanti!
Uma das melhores experiências que vivi foi morar dois meses em Catania, no Ostello Degli Elefanti. O lugar é bonito, a vista do terraço é perfeita, o hostel é bem localizado e as pessoas que trabalham lá forma fixa são ótimas, hospitaleiras. Tive a sorte de ter como companheiros voluntários que, assim como eu, buscavam aprender a falar italiano e observar/viver a cultura local, fiz grandes amizades. E pra finalizar não posso deixar de falar dos donos, duas pessoas excepcionais e trabalhadoras que me acolheram de maneira gentil e divertida, me senti em casa o tempo todo. Grazie mille, amici!
We are a Backpackers Hostel looking for enthusiastic volunteers! This is a great opportunity to explore the sunny Sicily, learn some Italian and have a great time in a great city! We are right in the centre of town, a minute from the Duomo square, you don't get more central in Catania than us! Our building is amazing and offers the best views of Catania!About the host
