It was my first experience with Worldpackers and It couldn’t be better. The place is magical and I got amazing memories there. I was so lucky living here because I had the opportunity to be immerse in the culture, getting new friends and testing the best wine. The job is easy and enjoyable, specially when is about making cakes and having fun with the guests. Ostello bello is a family and I keep them in my heart for ever. Grazie mille 💕

Be prepared to live in a breathtakingly beautiful place in the Umbrian hills. I’ve never felt more in the real Italy than in Ostello Bello Assisi/Bevagna. Duilio and Erika made me feel welcomed and at home, with their upright and docile son ;) they form a nice family. The surrounding were astonishing. Tasks were of various nature, think about doing some beds, staying guard at the reception or cooking a cake in a working shift. It was never dull and they’re not too rigid about the work. The presence of the dog Heide (l’attrice) and cat Mina (la principessa) was a plus. Would highly recommend!

Ostello Bello is a special place, where I felt at home as soon as I got there. I learned a lot about hospitality and I had a big opportunity to improve myself.
What struck me the most is the freedom of working in a pleasant environment while always being myself.
Duilio, Laura and all the staff are really special people and they are always willing to help. We spent really nice moments all together.
The experience is enhanced by the amazing setting of Torre del Colle, dominated by history, silence and beautiful landscapes.
All these aspects made my first volunteer unforgettable.

Do you know that feeling of being home away from home? Well, that's how Ostello Bello feels. I don't even know if I'll be able to put into words my experience there. Torre del Colle it's just the most beautiful place to live in. It's perfect to practice the "dolce far niente", and just watch the sunsets, chill in the swimming pool, or have a morning coffee in the hammock.
The work, it's simple and well organized, and Laura and Duilio are always there to help! There's always plenty of food and drinks, and the accommodation for volunteers it's amazing.
Grazie a tutti, ci vediamo presto!!

As my first Worldpackers experience I feel absolutely fortunate to have been chosen to volunteer and spent time at Ostello Bello. The location - Torre del Colle is tiny but charming and beautiful (the sunset from the church was my fave). I immediately felt welcomed by my co-volunteers, Duilio, Laura, and the rest - everyone were friendly, understanding and willing to help. There was a timetable allocated and the tasks were easy to learn and carry-out. Food as promised was provided and the accommodation was super comfy and homey. Thank you Ostello Bello family!
