My experience at the hostel was amazing! The vibe from the place, the rest of the staff, the owners, everything made me feel so confortable! Regarding the job, the task were very easy; reception for check-in/check-out and cleaning of the common areas. The place is very well located! In a beautiful neighbourhood very close to the beach, next to Taormina, and very well connected with bus and train station. But the most lovely thing from this experience was meeting the owners, the hostel and Graziella! Staying at the hostel was finding my home at Sicily 💚. Thank you so much!

Hi Tania, thank you for your precious help <3



I had an incredible time at the hostel's house. As my first volunteering experience, I could not be more grateful to have done it at this place. The location is awesome; I loved Gole dell'Alcantara and the secret beach! The owners and other volunteers were great! Grazie per tutto, Graziella e the hostel, è stato benissimo!

Hello Tomas, thanks for your help :)



I had a great time at the hostel. the hostel and his wife graziella are super welcoming and caring. The tasks at the reception are quite easy to learn but it's still really important to be reliable. Everything will be explained to you and you get plenty of time to learn. The beach is really close and it's the perfect location for public transport (train & bus). Me, the other volunteers and even guests had so much fun. I can only recommend the hostel. Thank you for having me the hostel and graziella. Grazie 🫶🏻
