As my first volunteering experience, I can say everything was perfect. Alessio is an such an amazing host and kind person, he was always there in case I needed anything. The working hours are very chill and the work is easy, but what I loved the most was meeting new people everyday and making friends all around the world. I enjoyed it so much that I extended my volunteering, and Alessio was very welcoming about it. 10/10, would go back in a heartbeat! It truly felt like a home away from home ❤️

I had a great time at the hostel, the hostel itself is lovely and the staff are very kind. I unfortunately did not stay for the whole month as it is currently low tourist season so I was unable to socialize and take part in the daily activities at the hostel. I would highly recommend for summer season!

Thank you Sara! I wait you to pick up your backpack :) Have a great time aroud Italy, and see you the next time, maybe in the summer season :)



My stay in the hostel was great. Everyone was very welcoming and the place was lovely. I met great people during my stay, especially the other volunteers who were amazing. Concerning the work, the shifts were always respected and we had a lot of free time. The work was not difficult and Suthan is always there if you have any questions ( he also makes very nice food).

My time volunteering for the hostel was definitely unforgettable! The team of volunteers was great and instantly made me feel welcome in the group. Lecce is a great town to be in if you want to get away from the major cities of Italy and experience Puglia culture! I would definitely go back to stay as a guest or volunteer again. Please message me for more details about this experience :)
