We are the biggest and most popular youth hostel in Pisa. But more than that, we are a family! Our goal is to make our guests feel home and part of our family as soon as they step into our doors.

We are really centrally located, just 4 minytes by walk to the main train station in pisa, 12 minutes by walk from the airport, 20 min walk to the famous leaning tower. From the hostel you can easily explore all Tuscany, the sea side (15km) and share the experience with the other helpers or all the travelers or you'll meet in our common space.

Volunteers that will be staying with us will be living for free at the Hostel, and will be able to use Hostel facilities for free.
Our experience shows us that people really enjoy helping with us given the great social atmosphere that our huge hostel offers and the chance to meet and talk to guests that are usually travelers from all over the world.
The main advantage about helping out at a Hostel is the independence that you are going to have, since you are going to help us out some hours a day, and you will be free to do your own things in your free time, without having to explain much to others, since you will be hosted in a Hostel environment and not a family house.

We're on the lookout for friendly female helpers to join our team, we do prefer someone that stays longer and not just one week.
EXCEPTION: There isn't any gender preference for musicians and artists and so on ;) Short stays are also welcome.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept applications from couples.

We are looking for a person that knows how important is to smile, and also knows how to make a guest feel welcome.

We expect our helpers to take responsibility for their duties and to take things seriously, to help us improve where possible, and have a positive and flexible mindset. We are interested in pro-active, happy, positive people that do not treat our place as a party place, we are a relaxed hostel but we expect perfection in order to be able to offer our guests the most. Common sense is required with a lot of our work and a general ability to pay attention and keep an eye on situations.

5 hours a day, 5 days a week. You will be helping in shifts (either morning, day or evening shift) and you will be never working alone, but assist the senior colleagues in their duties.

ACCOMODATION: You will share your room with other volunteers or member of the staff divided by gender.

- helping with welcoming the guests and giving all hostel informations, cleaning the bar and lounge area, helping with the bar duties and many different things that need to be done at the hostel. Hostel life can be a little hectic at times and we might ask you to help out here and there :)
