Lochside Hostel

We're a young and energetic team of backpackers wanting the help create the best environment for other backpackers to enjoy! At Lochside, we have been welcoming volunteers from all across the world for over four years. Located right on the banks of Loch Ness, Lochside is in a beautiful spot and is the perfect place to relax, immerse yourself in the beautiful highland scenery and meet new people. The work is very straightforward (for more details see position description!) and averages 2-3 hours per day, giving our volunteers as much time as possible to enjoy the hostel and explore the area. Volunteers will stay in a shared four-bed staff dorm and will have access to all the shared facilities (kitchen/laundry etc.) If you are able to stay for at least 4 weeks we can also offer you an allowance for food. Our hostel is fairly remote (a 15 minute drive from the nearest food shop!), so most days are spent walking or relaxing in the hostel. However, we have a bus stop right outside our front door, so it is very easy to travel into Inverness or beyond in your spare time. In fact, within two hours it is possible to get to Fort William, the Isle of Skye or Oban, all by bus. Our hostel has always been reliant on young volunteers and is very laid back; if you're looking for a party atmosphere we may not be for you but if you are wanting to unwind and relax for a month (without very good Wi-Fi!) Lochside is the perfect choice!

Ideally, we are looking for volunteers to stay for a month at least but we are flexible if it isn't possible to come for the entire month. We really love the hostel and hope that you will too! To see what we get up to here at Lochside, take a look on our Instagram @lochsidehostel : )

This was my first Worldpackers experience and it was absolutely amazing! Rob was such a great host. The work was quick and easy. The other volunteers were so great! And the hostel was in the most beautiful area. I loved it here and wish I could’ve stayed longer!

Nuestra experiencia fue sumamente grata, el equipo te recibe con los brazos abiertos, mejoré mi inglés ya que si o si necesitas comunicarte con los huéspedes independientemente la tarea que te asignen. Se cumplen las horas estipuladas, no es difícil la verdad, te queda mucho tiempo para disfrutar de la instalación o la naturaleza que está alrededor de todo el hostel. El ambiente es súper familiar y agradable, nos sentimos cómodas desde el primer momento, gracias por la hospitalidad:) lo súper recomiendo.

It has been the best experience as a volunteer. I would repeat it thousands of times without thinking. Rob is the best manager i have ever known and thanks to him for everything. The location of the hostel is perfect if you want to connect with nature and if u want to meet people from all over the world. I definitely recommend going to Lochside Hostel because the work is not hard, all of them are so nice and you can learn a lot about many things.

The Lochside hostel is a really cozy and friendly place! This was my first volunteering experience and it was a perfect choice!
Rob the manager is a very friendly, funny and helpful person. All the other volunteers help each other and become friends and family.
I would go back anytime if I had the chance.
