Urbany is the best hostel in the entire UK. It is a place where you really feel home away from home. Since the first second I got there, everyone from the team made sure to give me a cozy environment, it is insanely clean, all the volunteers match so well, even when they are from different parts of the world. That’s due to Leah’s ability to choose the right staff, she does a spectacular work in that place. I will never forget the incredible days I had there. My heart is blown away. I recommend it more than anything!!

I wouldn’t trade my experience at Urbany for anything! This hostel has truly become my second home, and all the people I’ve met along the way will forever hold a special place in my heart.
The shifts are very reasonable and the work hours are respected. The facilities are fantastic, the location is unbeatable, and all the social events are super fun. Special thanks to Leah for being the best manager— and to the team for being the best in general.
I highly recommend Urbany to anyone who’s interested in applying!

There’s no words to describe what Urbany and it’s people mean to me. I can only say that now I have a second family in London, and a home away from home.
I love you all with all my heart, it was and it’ll be the best experience i’ve ever had.

Volunteering at Urbany is a good way to travel around London since it is very well located. Since it’s a social hostel, I think it is a good way to meet people from all over the world. I think that volunteering at this hostel is not for everyone, it can be very challenging since they really have a mentality of « work hard, play hard ». They have very high standards for cleaning and housekeeping since it is a highly-rated hostel. I found it harder to have a good sleep since it is a very social hostel, people are coming in and out of the room and leaving the light on most of the night.
