Victoria is a cozy, friendly and relaxed place to volunteer at. The people in charge are always available if you need them and they are flexible and respectful. The job is simple and clear. Couldn't stay as long as planned for personal reasons and they accepted my arrival before the agreed date and I'll always be super grateful for it because I didn't have nowhere else to go.
Totally recommend working with the hosts in charge of Victoria.
Thank you very much for your hospitality and I hope to be able to visit one day! Happy 2020.

Great experience from start to finish. I appreciated how hands on the owners were. With small road blocks owners were communicative and willing to understand and collaborate. Acceptance for creative freedom and willingness to take your ideas for the hostel really made this place stand out!

It was a amazing experience, I learned a lot and I also had a lot of fun in the same time. The schedule is flexibel and the owners really respected our work hours. The job is easy but you need to be resposible.

I met people in Victoria who I will keep for the rest of my life. All the owners are friendly and helpful, I hope to see them again. Thanks guys.

Overall, I had a great time working here for two months. The hostel is well located, big, beautiful (+ awesome balcony!) and full of good vibes, the owners are friendly, welcoming and fun to work with. The friendships formed with the other volunteers are unforgettable. The work is demanding during the high season but always enjoyable, and it's a great way to get some work experience while discovering Genova and the gorgeous region of Liguria ;)
I would 100% recommend the hostel and this experience, grazie mille to Marco, Matteo, Manu and Giulio <3 Un abbraccio e a presto!

I had the best time i could ever ask for working in Victoria House. Since the first minute I walked in, I felt a great atmosphere between the owners, the other volunteers and the guests. The hostel is amazing! I fell in love with the city and with the people I met there. Marco, Matteo, Manuel and Giulio are amazing people as well! Super friendly people, with huge hearts. I’d 10/10 recommend working there! Cannot wait to be back for another month!

A presto ragazzi!
