I had a really great time at the hostel, Egidio is a really good & genuine manager who's grateful for the help provided and makes it very clear what needs to be done. The hours were as described or less and it is a really pleasant, relaxed & organised working environment. The facilities in the hostel are great and it has a huge social area to meet guests. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and was sad to leave - I would definitely recommend volunteering here and would love to come back in the future!

My first Worldpackers experience and I'm so glad it was at the hostel. Egidio really is a great person and everyone in the hostel helped at making it feel as a home away from home during my time there, I would gladly stay at GT if I ever went back to the hostel!

I had an amazing experience at the hostel. I enjoyed every day there. I met wonderful people, especially the manager (Egídio) who is very attentive, respectful and funny. In addition I improve my English. I am very grateful to the hostel for the opportunity and hope to return one day.
