Volunteering in a new hostel

Our hostel is located in the region of Apulia precisely in the heart of Salento, this is one of the most beautiful areas of Italy. Nowadays our location is becoming more popular, also we are the first real hostel in the area and with too much potential to develop yet. That’s why we are looking for growing up our family (we need more people in our LOBBY ASAP!)
