The Hostel is managed by the biggest environmental organisation of Italy. The building is situated on a small mountain called Monte Barro, at 750m osl. In 2013 our local entity decided to start a new adventure and run a environmental business taking care of the structure that had been abandoned, all the income of our eco-hostel is reinvested in other projects to promote a sustainable way of living to fight climate crisis.
Here we are now, after more than six years, managing a sustainable hostel. It now hosts many families, groups and schools from different parts of Italy and the world. But we always try to improve and the help of Workawayers is vital to always have new energies and a good atmosphere.
The hostel is not only the centre of our association, but also an occasion for us, our guests and Workawayers to grow, learn and teach something.

This is the perfect experience for someone wanting to live out of the world but in good company, with the challenge of the lowest impact and a creative mind! We are a group of young workers, travellers and students ready to share it all with you and to learn more. We have some days when we work a lot and some others in which we can dedicate ourselves to other small projects. So the schedule isn't fixed, but we like to organise it together with Workawayers. There's a lot to learn, a lot to see and more to discover!
We need a person willing to help at the hostel during the day and staying overnight for a period of AT LEAST TWO MONTHS (better 3 months). The jobs will be cleaning, preparing the rooms for guests and groups, taking care of the apartment where we live, taking care of small and creative projects, share experiences and ideas, anything else that could help the hostel become a better, more sustainable and welcoming place!
The volunteers will live in a shared room with 2 bunk beds and in a shared flat. The apartment is fully furnished of everything and food is provided. We usually cook and eat all together. We are pretty much all vegetarians and vegans, but we don't mind if you have another kind of diet! We have two bathrooms in the apartment and a big living room where we gather and share spare time. The hostel is in the middle of a protected park, so we have plenty of space for hikes and walks in nature. It is a quite isolated place even if friends often come visit. There are no public means of transport to reach the hostel so volunteers will use car pooling or walk to the closest town and facilities (around 45 minutes walk).
We are surrounded by a beautiful landscape, in the middle of natural parks, mountains and lakes. There are various activities you can do both here with us and in the surrounding area.
We hosted maaaany volunteers from all over the world, more than 60 now! For any information don't hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to answer all of your questions :)

However, the greatest thing about this place are the people who make you feel like you are in a family .
It was my first Workaway experience and I could not be happier - 10/10. I stayed for one month, which was short, but during my time there it felt like a year. No two days were the same and there was always something new to do! You have the freedom to do whatever

She likes to clean and wash the dishes (crazy but true!) and does every task precisely and with a smile.
She is always up for a table soccer match, a good joke, a walk in the mountains or a chat with others. She is autoironic, sensitive and funny.
Hope to see

I would definitely go back without thinking twice. I describe this place as "my safe place", a peaceful and vibrant spot where you can be yourself and have crazy fun nights with awesome dancing partners and
Staying at Monte Barro was such an amazing time, so amazing, that I ended up staying almost 4 months instead of just two weeks:)
Mimi and Giulia make life on the mountain so cozy, familiar, amusing, and I never felt like just another worker. The way they help new volunteers integrate into the family (which I got to witness from the
She is very precise and always on-time, she works autonomously and is very reliable on the tasks you give her.
She is definitely a good worker, good company and a positive and smiley person!
We really appreciated her help and would suggest her to other hosts.
You will always be welcome to come back :)
Everyone was so friendly and welcoming when I came that I directly felt well with them.
You can have enough time for yourself but always can hang out with the others in the livingroom too.
Everyone is cooking fresh and tasty food and always pretty much :)
The work is absolutely not too much and was also never
