Small, friendly hostel located in Genova's old town. Both staff and volunteers were really nice and welcoming. There was never any problem with communication and if you need extra help someone was always there to provide that. This was my first volunteer experience and would recommend it to anyone who wished to try.

The experience at the hostel was really amazing. It is right in the middle of the historical center, which is so beautiful, the hostel itself is comfortable and cozy, the job is simple and we are well trained for it before we start. The owners are great people, we felt super welcome the whole time. They are communicative, fun, and they are there for you if you need them.
Giulio, Manuel and Paul, thank you so much for everything. Hope we can meet again.

My experience at Manena was great! The guys are awesome, it is a great team to work with! They are super kind and comprehensive, always available to help with everything I needed.
Task are simple and accurate to what they described before my arrival. The hostel is super nice and clean with a really cozy and warm enviroment. I learned new things and developed some skills, was able to practice my italian also. The greatest thing that I carry with me is the friends I made in there.
Thank you Manena's team for this unforgetable opportunity!
Hugs for everybody!!

Since I arrived to Manena Hostel I felt I was home, the guys were very kind and clear with the tasks and that I had to do in my shifts, the hostel is very clean and organized, my experience has been one of the bests that I’ve ever had, the location of the hostel is amazing because you have everything close and you don’t have to take public transportation to arrive to the turistic places, you can achieve them walking. Genova has a lot to offer regarding food, beautiful places beside the see and interesting activities on weekends, totally recommended!
