Thank you so much Steve and Linda for this beautiful experience. I stayed for two months at The Beehive, such an enlightened place, with a cozy atmosphere, so organized and clean. My roommates, both volunteers, became friends I am taking for life. It is the perfect opportunity to meet people from all around the world in a calm environment, so culturally rich with the cooking classes, the chess, even the yoga mats if you like to practice. I heartily recommend this experience, and I hope the next volunteers have such lovely memories and friends all over the world. The Beehive is HOME ❤️🥰

My experience at the beehive has been the most incredible experience I have ever had. Steve and Linda are truly amazing people. This was my first time away from home and first time in Europe and the beehive quickly became my home.
The work was clearly outlined and very manageable.
I was able to meet people from all over the world and create friendships that I hope will last a lifetime.
The space at the beehive is comfortable and has a very home like feel to it. The bagels are amazing and the pickles also.
Yuli is also an incredible worker here, who helped me learn so much.
Unforgettable .

The place is nice, comfortable and has everything you need to have a good stay. Linda and Steve are good people, they were very respectful and polite to me. Yuli, who I have spent the most time with, is kind and patient. Due to a personal problem I had to go home earlier than planned, but I'm very grateful and highly recommend this experience.

The experience at Beehive Hostel has been very enriching. From the first day I arrived they made me feel at home, everything is very flexible, the tasks are easy and the place is super quiet (they also have a wonderful garden). But the best of all is the people there, both the guests who stay there and the staff members. Yuli has been very patient and above all very kind, Lea makes your day with her "Buongiorno"! and the owners, Steve and Linda, deserve a special mention, they have been amazing hosts and I learned how to make fresh pasta!

I would definitely choose them again :)
