I loved my time at the hostel I was so sad to leave, the hostel has everything you need and is really clean, the tasks are easy and we had shifts agreed ahead of time and on my days off I was able to visit other parts of Sicily. The town is quiet so if you want party place it's not for you but it's super peaceful and the beach is 5 minutes away. Would recommend this place always. Big thank you to everyone I met here!

I had so much fun at the hostel! the hostel and Graziella are extremely friendly and made sure to make this a home away from home (they even helped celebrate my birthday with cake and drinks). The location of the hostel is awesome, extremely close to the beach. The work is easy and the volunteers made the experience great. There weren't a lot of volunteers/guests towards the end of my stay, as it was low season. Overall I recommend :) grazie mille the hostel!

Thanks for everything Noee :)



Working in the hostel was interesting, easy. The shifts were very quiet since I worked in September (off season). You learn all the reception work very wast since it isn't a rocket science. Had lots of fun with other volunteers. the hostel and Graziella are amaizing people. Thank you for the opportunity.

Thank you Ziva, your help was fundamental :)



I had a great time in the hostel but it was mostly because of the other staff members . Because we had many volunteers some of them had to live in an apartman (like me) and only 4 volnteers could live in the hostel. The apartman is not bad but inconvinent because you have to walk 15 minutes to eat, work, cook, etc. When I moved to the hostel I liked the living situation better. Overall loved the hostel, Graziella is great, felt like she is a mother of the hostel. Also the hostel was nice, but mostly he was not at the hostel. Also the other volunteers made a hostel like a big family

Thank you Dominika, we wish you the best xx



My time at the hostel was wonderful! The work was fairly easy and although there is no permanent training manager, we all help each other. In August, peak season, there were plenty of fun volunteers and guests although they do accept travelling school groups. I was in the apartment and loved the space - close to the good supermarket too. I really enjoyed speaking Italian with Graziella and I would recommend being able to speak (or at least understand) Italian if you work here - it will make for easier communication. Grazie mille per tutto Graziella and the hostel, spero che ci vediamo presto 🤗
