    Hello stranger and nice to meet you! Im Marco and Im about to open a Hostel in San Vito lo Capo in Sicily (this was 2016, now we are open and happy about our experience, our work and we cant wait to meet more workaway friends:) , its gonna be the first hostel in town and Im excited about it, at the same time Im a bit worried but I know time and experience will make worries disappear, the Hostel life I know it well, Ive been travelling around the world and I have been in many hostels but I never run one before.
    My grandfather gave this building to me in one of the most important place in Sicily regarding tourism, integration, nature!
    The Hostel wants to be a cultural place open also to local people, we will try to make every traveller understand the beauty of the area of San Vito lo Capo, we will try to have as much fun as we can while working and outside work, because you must love your job otherwise your wasting precious life time!
    The Hostel has got 7 rooms, awesome terrace with sea and mountain view, a vegetable garden, oranges trees, lemon trees and mandarin trees:)
    See you there!

    Thanks to all the amazing volounteers of 2020!

    Hello everyone!

    Hello! we will need helpers that are happy, happiness is a state of mind, its a way of living and loving life!

    You will be interviewed on whatapp/skype before you get here!

    Each person is welcome to stay with us 10/20 days, you can stay longer but that depends if we get along well together:)

    You must be EXTREMELY TIDY and EXTREMELY CLEAN even when you're not working, this is the most important thing to do at the hostel, we really don't tolerate dirty or messy people, your own space inside the hostel must be tidy and clean all the time. We constatly check that the dorm where you will sleep is clean and tidy, if not you might be asked to leave.
    Be always on time when it's time to work.
    Sorry for being so serioud about this topic but being clean is a sign of respect for the people that are sharing the space with you.

    I'm a very flexible person and I like to be as much clear as possible, I talk a lot in order to make sure you understand what needs to be done and how.
    Always be true with me, if you lie to me you're out of the hostel in seconds.

    What we need you to do is:
    (duties vary according to each person's abilities)

    Help prepare di breakfast in the morning
    Clean well the kitchen after breakfast
    Clean well the common areas after breakfast
    Clean well the rooms if necessary
    Taking care of the garden
    Cooking
    Use Instagram and publish pictures
    Fixing bikes if you know how to do it!
    Fixing things here and there
    Playing instruments and organize small performance at night if you can
    Night Guardian
    Make sure your things are not abandoned around the hostel
    Cover me when I go swimming ^_^

    Very important -------> Most of the morning shift are about deeply cleaning the hostel, if you don't know how to clean, do not apply!
    Very important ----> you need to know how to cook (how to use a knife, chopping board etc..), even simple food is fine.
    You don't have to know how to do every single thing asked in the list above.

    RECYCLING is EXTREMELY important, you might need to take care of the rubbish and separate well
    what other "distracted" people have not well recycled!

    Its a Hostel, everyone does a bit of everything..almost:)

    Regarding food, everything is included but you might have to prepare it for yourself, depends on the day , you can use the kitchen to cook whenever you want, we provide vegetables, pasta, rice, coffee, sugar, salt, oil and many other ingredients!
    You will have all the Wifi you need!
    You can use one of our bike
    You will have discounts on tours
    You will love the nature around here:)

    Marco

    See you in 2020!!!
