Il Nosadillo

Because we are in the centre of Bologna, in a great location, close to the main square and grocery stores. We are a small and cosy hostel where it is very easy to meet all the guests and feel at home. Volunteering here is a great opportunity to exercise your creativity, share ideas and learn new things, including lots of nice recipes.... we cook a lot here!

My name is Caterina, I am from Bologna. I consider myself a nice and active person. My mission is to create a nice environment for all our guests and fix what is not working well, solve all the problems. We are a small hostel and I have only an employee, Tancredi who also loves challenges and he mostly helps me with social media, our website, but also some random manual tasks. Here the atmosphere is super informal and we are used to laughing a lot, cooking and eating together with our volunteers.

I can’t say enough good things about Caterina, Tancredi and Nosidillo hostel. My stay was very comfortable and easy going and Bologna so quickly felt like home! My time was very much respected and it was so easy to explore the city, and neighboring cities on days off (Venice, verona, Modena, Parma). I made some life long friends with the other volunteers and just am so grateful for my month spent at Nosidillo!!

Staying for a month in Nosadillo gave me a lot. I met tons of people, made great friends with the people from the staff and the guests. It was also incredibly fulfilling to serve the guests, making them feel at home and leading in different activities throughout the city on the night time

I had some challenging experiences while dealing with some difficult guests, but I’m extremely grateful for this. It made me understand a lot more about working on a team, business mindset and conveying information in a clear and impartial way

If you want to have an enriching time, don’t miss this one!

It was amazing! The best first experience to have with worldpackers and if you have never been to a hostel like me. The people were kind, caring, respectful and fun.

The hostel is beautiful. Tancredi (Manager) is an angel and Caterina (The owner/ Manager) is a lovely and exellent businesswoman who has made Nosadillo the best Hostel in Bologna.

Augustin and Maite (fellow volunteers) were the best company I could ask for.

I wish them all, all the best and can't wait to see them again.

My experience in Nosadillo Hostel was amazing, I felt like at home, I really could enjoy with the staff and volunteers in the Italian culture and I practiced a lot my italian. It is also a good opportunity to meet guests from very near, because the hostel is cozy and small. The tasks are not at all heavy and are enjoyable. Bologna is also a wonderfull place for going out and hanging around. Thanks a lot to everybody Nosadillo :)!!!
