The Experience

We are always looking for volunteers helping us with our breakfast tasks, kitchen help and housekeeping tasks. You will always work with some staff member who follows you and trains you. The job's easy and leaves you with a lot of free time to socialize and discover Milan! We especially appreciate Worlpackers who are flexible and keen to help :)

Waleed has been helpful at the beginning, but as days went by he started taking his job less and less seriously. We made friends with him, and because of this, he didn't respect the rules that apply to everyone working (or volunteering) with us. This resulted in some embarassing incidents with our paying customers, and a financial loss on our side. Unfortunately, I could not recommend working with him. Good luck nevertheless. Stefano



Wonderful experience. Though initially I was bit disappointed because of extra working hours, Stefano is so kind and helped me out. The work activities may be different like housekeeping and helping hand in the kitchen for dinner. Mostly the staffs are polite and friendly as well. You can meet many travellers, the place and the Food is amazing. I totally recommend this experience if you want to explore Milan.
Due to COVID-19 I couldn't complete my stay as promised, and I feel sorry, but later on in April, the hostel is closed I believe, when the situation got worse. Thanks 😊 & Good luck👍

My experience at Babila Hostel exceeded all my expectations. The location of the hostel is great and the structure is also great. I had two free days a week, so I was able to travel to several nearby cities. On regular working days, there was also time left to get to know the city. I just have to thank you for the wonderful staff, who welcomed me so well and made me feel at home during the 5 weeks I was staying. Thank you all so much (Gerry, Elizabetta, Manoela, Ibra, Manuel, Atif, Esteban, Michaele, Ridha, Islam, Stefano, Nicola)! I will always remember you, and I will keep you in my heart.
