Bath Backpackers

Come and volunteer at our hostel:
- If you like being part of a project: we've taken over a poorly-rated hostel and are working to lift it up quickly!
- We need people who love welcoming guests and creating a warm and friendly vibe.
- We need people with ideas: interior designers, welcome!
- If you are looking to be part of a great team (of ~10 volunteers).
- If you want to live in one of the most gorgeous cities in the UK.

- We won't make you work more than previously agreed. - We trust. - We involve volunteers in the decision process. - We laugh. - We try to be as accommodating as possible with the schedule (+ if you want to find a part-time job in town, we can help you). - We share!

It has been a great experience and a great learning experience to be at Bath Backpackers, I am still grateful for the summer.
I have had and the wonderful people I have met and all the plans and conversations shared.
Kate and Aris care about the volunteers and really want them to feel at ease, as they do with the backpackers. It is a very nice project and I would definitely recommend it. There is a great atmosphere and a lot of community.

Recomiendo totalmente este voluntariado. Kate y Aris son muy amables, cercanos y comprensivos. El trabajo es sencillo, se realiza muy bien en los horarios propuestos y semana a semana puedes coordinar tu horario. En el hostel se da un ambiente muy grato con voluntarios y huéspedes, habitualmente se realizan actividades en conjunto.

Absolutely amazing experience. The owners Kate and Aris, as well as the manager Julia, truly cared for every volunteer and guest. They are kind, accommodating, respectful and always willing to help solve any issues that might occur. The reception job consisted of checking in/out, making beds, doing laundry. And they were very flexible if you had days you wanted off. This was my first Worldpackers experience and I couldn’t be more grateful to have had this be my first. Truly unforgettable people and a beautiful place to call home for 2 months. Absolutely recommend to anyone.

La experiencia en el Hostel fue muy positiva, mejoré mi inglés y también aprendí a trabajar como recepcionista. Aris fue bastante paciente conmigo, Kate es una gran persona con la que se pueden hablar las cosas y se preocupa por ti. Julia (la manager), es buena profesional pero a veces debe ser más paciente a la hora de explicar las cosas, ya que no todo el mundo habla inglés nativo. En general una gran experiencia, donde conocí a gente de muchos países muy interesante. El hostel está bien pero la limpieza de las habitaciones de los voluntarios se debe hacer más intensamente.
