Thank You Julian, was a pleasure to have you here with us.
Julian is very dynamic and problem solving guy, really able with computer and programing. He knows how to do everything!


They all always were so kind, lovely and polite with me. They had pacient to help me with the language and everything. I’d like to say thank you all and say that they were my italian family here literily. The work usually is helping cleaning, painting or biulding some thing. Its simple and relax. I would like to be back.



Amazing experience! Everybody there are lovely people, they make you feel like home



The experience at H.Taormina was truly amazing considering the people I met. The work I did at the hostel was more focused on helping in the renovations of the hostel.In addition I also worked in the reception and attendance of the guests and sometimes in the cleaning and maintenance of the hostel.Usually they do not accept men for the worldpackers program.Also,I did not stay in a private room. They gave me a free ride to Volcano.The hostel Taormina is a very cool place to be.In addition, the system they use for guest check-in is very manual which makes the chances of errors increasing.



Foi uma ótima experiência :)!

Desde sempre me senti em casa. Posso dizer que criei uma família na Sicília.

O trabalho estava muito bem organizado e o hostel é muito simpático, e localizado numa cidade belíssima :)!

Obrigada Freddy, Francesco, Gaetano e Vismary :)!
