I had a good time at the hostel. The staff is super nice, the amount of work is fair, and Antonio cooks amazing local food ;) The region of Salento is nice and has one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. You should be aware of the fact that the close region doesn't have a ton of activities apart from visiting small towns, nature and beaches, especially during off-season. Lecce is a nice little city, but lacks a real nightlife for example. If you keep that in mind and are fine with it, you'll have an amazing time. The hostel itself did everything right, and I would recommend it!

It was overall a really good experience to stay at the hostel. Lecce as a city is quite quiet, so you need to be good at managing your own time, but at night the hostel is usually very much alive with a combination of the other volunteers, the other staff and so many different travellers. This stay will forever have a special place in my heart.

One of the most intense and meaningful experiences of my life. I was able to learn a lot by living with new people and seeing new places. The work is not demanding, the hostel structure is great and the permanent employees are wonderful. A special hug to Maria and Antonio, people who bring the hostel to life and made my experience incredible and full of memories. Thank you, the hostel Colective Hostel!

I loved this experience!! We all cooked a lot together learned about local holidays and went to all the beaches around. The work wasn't too hard or challenging and the team feeling was very strong. We really felt like a small family.

What first impresses about the hostel is the building in which the hostel is located: even if a bit far from the center is made with local white stones and super spacious rooms. The volunteer room is super comfortable and the team is super clear about the tasks to be done. I recommend that future travelers come between June and August where more young travelers arrive so they don't get bored and can socialise and that they consider that most of the best beaches in Puglia are only accessible by car. Thanks Alessio for the good leadership and Antonio for being the soul of the place.
