    Description

    We are Claudio and Isabella,
    Claudio comes from Rome and we both lived there for some years.
    Isabella is born in Palermo, and we decided to move definitively here in 2012.

    Our hostel is a family managed hostel located in the center of Palermo city, a property that we manage with a lot of passion.

    For us is not just a job opportunity, but also a nice way to meet people from all the world, different cultures and lifestyles.

    The property is located inside an historical building of late 1600 "Palazzo Castrofilippo", that it's been restored some years ago.

    We have 3 shared and mixed rooms with bulk beds available for the guests:
    1st Room (6 beds with ensuite bathroom)
    2nd Room (6 beds with external shared bathroom)
    3rd Room (8 beds +1 with external shared bathroom)

    The property also have an openspace that works as kitchen and breakfast room; the kitchen is fully equipped and there are also a TV, wifi connection, coffee machine, and all the appliances that the guests can use as they wish.

    The hostel location is strategic to visit the center of the city and it's many places of historical and gastronomic relevance. All places and monuments are located at a distance of a few hundred meters, allowing the guests to easily reach them without the use of public transport.

    The night life is developed inside the numerous streets and alleys surrounding the hostel. There are also a mini-market, a travel agency, a wine bar, a pharmacy and a bakery shop right outside the hostel entrance.

    Hi there,
    last year was more simple for us to take care about the Hostel 24hrs, as we were living close to the property and we had just the hostel to manage.

    This season we manage the Hostel and a Bed & Breakfast too, and is not simple as we had to move living far from both.
    So we are usually running back and forth from one property to the other for cleanings and checkins.
    We also had and still have some family problems that force us to fly back and forth from Palermo to Rome.

    That's why we need help for this season, and is very important for us that volunteers that help us at the Hostel will be available and flexible with working shifts.

    Our friend volunteers should help us managing the Hostel when, and if, we will be busy doing other property related activities.
    They have to manage guests checkins, control the situation in the hostel and give informations to the guests if necessary.
    Deal with the rooms daily cleanings that not require much time anyway.

    Volunteers have also to prepare the daily breakfast, where for preparing we mean just to arrange the cutlery and the necessary for breakfast on the appropriate desk.

    Shopping can be requested in some cases (markets and supermarkets are downstairs).

    In some cases, when guests come back during the night, could be necessary to handle the situation and moderate them checking that they follow the normal rules of manners and respect for the others.

    Volunteers will be involved for 5 hours a day, for 5 days a week.
    They will have 2 days off per week and we will also provide a refund of 20€ per week.

    As already said the hostel location is strategic to visit the center of the city and it's many places of historical and gastronomic relevance. All places and monuments are located at a distance of a few hundred meters, and the Movida is developed inside the numerous streets and alleys surrounding the hostel. Then If the volunteer have a bike or will rent it locally, or he wants to use public transport, he can reach also many beaches and seaside resorts very close.
