Botanical Backpackers

We're great for volunteers who want to really feel at home in Belfast,
we'll show you the best cafes, walks, and ideas for a rainy day!
We have the loveliest volunteers, so you should meet some new friends while you work!

We're a little family here- everyone works hard, but we also help each other out whenever we can! The hostel is run by Erika (a Belfast local), and we usually have 2-3 volunteers at a time.

Love this hostel! It's the best experience I have had thus far volunteering. It's a small hostel with a majority of great guests that come around. If you can ever volunteer here I highly recommend it Erika is the sweetest and coolest person I've ever met.

My stay at the Botanical Backpackers hostel was amazing. It was my first time volunteering and I couldn’t ask for a better experience. Erika is the best, she was super welcoming and always patient.
The tasks were reasonable and well explained, and there is plenty of time to explore Belfast and Northern Ireland.
I will for sure visit again!!

Absolutely wonderful experience! Erika was an amazing host and super helpful throughout the entire process. The work was extremely fair and you have plenty of time to explore Northern Ireland!

She offered so many great recommendations throughout my stay which made planning day trips or things to do in town easy. Such an amazing experience, I can’t recommend it enough!
