Thankyou to Ignacio and Micha for making the experience enjoyable, positive, and instructive!
Tasks are appropriate, and the general ambiance in the hostel is warm and friendly (meeting so many new people was a highlight for me). Salerno is an interesting place to visit, which made the stay worth it!

This experience was ok for me. I met amazing people at the hostel and had great times with them. I would say that this made my experience better.

My experience volunteering in Salerno was great. The hours of work are flexible, what allows you to enjoy the city and the beach, wicth is very close to where the hostel is located. We always cook together and have meals together, what helps to create a very welcoming atmosphere. Ignacio is a very caring host,  so as everyone during my stay. I would totally recommend Salerno Experience to other volunteers

The hostel is located in a beautiful old Palazzo right in the old town of Salerno, is also super close to the beach! 🏖️
Tasks are easy and you can organize time as it suits you best, if the job is done properly it's all good. Ignacio is a great host who makes you feel like home and with Polpetta, his lovely cat 🐈, they both make sure you spend a nice time there.
Can't wait to come back and have a drink at the terrace and enjoy more of there 😀

Hermosa experiencia. El hostel se encuentra en un palacio con valor patrimonial en pleno casco histórico de Salerno, cerquita del mar. Los horarios de trabajo son flexibles, ayudando a poner lindo el hostel en lo que haga falta. En las horas y días libres recorres uno de los paraísos del mundo - la Costa Amalfitana.
A todo esto le agrego el valor humano de Nacho, pasta chef y humorista polémico Argentino y Mica, barman y hermosa profesora de acrobacia en tela. Gracias por ayudarme a sentirme cómoda en Italia! Todo el éxito y los mejores deseos para el hermoso hostel que estan levantando!
