  • Description


    We are Betta and Matteo, the two 30 years old owners/managers/workers of the Hostel, nice to meet you! We are looking for help during our shifts and our mission is try to make guests' stay as pleasant as possible with passion and enthusiasm. We take care of our partners and workers because we love to create a lovely atmosphere and transfer it to our guests. Here anyone will be always welcome!

    The hostel is in the lovely historic centre of Genova. It is suitable for guests with a range of different needs: young travellers and backpackers, international exchange students, families with children, couples, groups, professionals and much more. We can host 35 guests in total, in three 8-bedded dorms and five double/triple rooms. Genova is an interesting and authentic city, close to an amazing seaside. The weather is always nice and we are in the heart of historical center ( the largest in Europe), very close to all the main attractions, bars, cafès and nightlife!

    We ask for help 25 hours per week (3 days free but they can change shifts with us or other helpers). We offer a private quadruple room for volunteers and a small pocket money for your ice-creams :)
