I'm still volunteering at this hostel & it's been such a great experience. Nico and Khris are fantastic hosts and have taught me so much about the region and Italian culture in general. Always super communicative & approachable. I really feel at home here. The volunteering itself is very manageable and fun. You have the opportunity to meet people from many different places.

Overall my experience at Lol hostel was amazing, I spent a very relaxing and fun month in Siracusa. The area is so beautiful and there is lots to explore around. The work is primarily bartending and it's straightforward. Nico and Khris are lovely, they make you feel very welcome and comfortable. It is a warm environment to be in as a solo traveller. The only problem was the apartment the volunteers live in. It has no air conditioning and there was a heatwave during my stay. After we complained the issue was resolved with portable air conditioning units. I would 100% recommend!

I had a great experience at Lol Hostel. Massimo, Nicholas and Christian are excellent people. The job is easy and the hostel is super nice where to meet international travelers . We volunteers had an apartment for accommodation, 2 minutes walking from the hostel. Thank you guys!

thanks Ayelen, it was a pleasure to have you here. Reliable, nice, smart, skilled. Hope to have you back here soon.
All the best :)



A fantastic workplace to volunteer at! Nicholas & Christian are the nicest men you will meet & LOL hostel is great because of their hard work. The work is easy & social, working on the bar and helping out in reception. Issue: the volunteer living standards were not satisfactory. Massimo (the owner) was doing his best to accommodate us, but the landlord of the volunteers apartment was slow to fix our broken toilet & shower. We constantly lived between the hostel & apartment (stressful) & the apartment did not have air conditioning (35 degree nights not nice). Hostel was better to live in.
