Salerno Experience

Salerno Experience Hostel is close to the most popular points of interests of the city as the Salerno Cathedral, Castello di Arechi, Garden of Minerva, Archaeological Museum of Salerno . The hostel is located in the storical Palazzo Genovese, which is situated in Piazza Sedile del Campo, where you can find restaurants, bars and some grocery shops. As a part of Amalfi Coast you might apreciate the fact that the sea is only 200m from the hostel's location.

We are delighted to receive enthusiastic people from the world, eager to collaborate, learn, have fun, eat the best Italian food and see the best landscapes of the Amalfi coast. We would like to meet people who can be with us for a long period of time, but if not, we are delighted to meet new people and make friends from anywhere in the world!

Hostel world? More like hostile world. Extremely poor communication before trip; passive aggressive staff. Mica kept mentioning how guests often called her a “bitch." That is no surprise after witnessing the heartless, rude atmosphere in the hostel. Most if not all of the volunteers are Argentinian men who constantly belittled me in a language I barely understood. In one major incident, I was verbally harassed by an older volunteer (along with daily microagressions and nasty looks). When I brought up my concern about sharing a room with all men (as an 18 year old girl), I was fully ignored.

Stacia, thank you for your feedback, which I wish was given during your stay, not after leaving. Mica once mentioned - in a joke - she is b*chy strict when it comes to following the rules, which are only few but have their reason to be followed, which you obvoiusly didn´t understand. Most of the staff are Argentinians - aged between 20-30, as most of the guests in the hostel. They joke between each other, tease each other in a friendly way. I am sorry if you didn´t get the jokes, took it personaly when they were just trying to inlcude you in our community. The agression you are writing about was caused when you brought a group of drunk and laud guests to area which was closed during the night, responding very bad in front of the guests to the staff who was responsible for silence during the night. The fact that you did the bare minimum of work and disapeared without a single word, taking food which wasn't yours, not joining the meals we were preparing and not talking to anyone, made it very difficult and unpleasant experience also for us. Anyway I hope your future volunteering opportunies will fit you better and that the travelling teaches you how to make and take jokes not personally on a friendly vibe as they are meant to be. All the best!

Everything was as discussed and agreed upon! Tasks were reasonable and expected for working in a hostel. Mika and Ignacio were fantastic hosts and easily became our friends, too. The best part was having constant influx of travelers, meeting new friends, and enjoying the area! If you work hard and do a good job, daily tasks will be completed and you can have most afternoons to explore the nearby beautiful Amalfi Coast.

The volunteer experience was great! Both our hosts we’re very engaging and super impressive people. Make sure you get to know them both and you’ll be beyond amazed at how great they are. You will definitely do some day trips and fun activities while on your stay. Thank you tons for the great experience! Wish we could stay longer next time!

Salerno Experience, como el nombre mismo dice, es una experiencia “de pe a pa”, pero es la comunidad y la compañía que se generan, las que hacen que esa experiencia sea increíble.
Mica y Nacho son quienes reciben a los voluntarios y huéspedes, y es con pequeños detalles que hacen la diferencia (ej: un mapa de la ciudad, para que nunca te sientas perdido).
Fue mi primer voluntariado, primer viaje y primera experiencia sola, pero cada persona y momento en Salerno Experience hicieron que nunca me sintiera de esa forma. Ahora la pregunta es: ¿te animas vos a crear TU propia experiencia?

I was really enjoying my stay at Salerno Experience, but I had to leave earlier than agreed (even another volunteer had to leave too because of the uncomfortable situation), due to a violent verbal agression from one of the collaborators to me. I had even had to inform to Worldpackers about that. It was so sad, because I was really liking the experience with Mika and Ignacio, who were always super nice and kind to me! I hope I could at least stay as a guest there, once this man had left the place. The building is so potential and unique!

I am sorry that your rating is based on this one unpleasant situation. To make things clear for other travellers: his agression was caused by u returning loudly few nights in a row, making noice with empty beer bottles when guests were trying to sleep. I am not taking his side as all problems should be solved calmly not by verbal agression, but it seems important to comunicate and not to make one-side conclusions. Anyway he is not part of the colaborators anymore and we hope you'll keep those good memories instead.
