De las mejores experiencias de mi vida hasta el momento! Las instalaciones y la ubicación son perfectas, está en pleno centro. El trabajo es de limpieza general de habitaciones y zonas comunes. Son entorno a 3/4h diarias (si hay poco trabajo incluso menos) y es muy llevadero ya que las tareas son fáciles, te explican todo perfectamente y te ayudan en todo y entre los voluntarios y el staff se forma muy buen trabajo en equipo. Pasé 5 semanas aquí y solo puedo decir cosas positivas, desde el primer momento te integran y me llevo experiencias y recuerdos increibles, solo puedo dar las gracias!!!!

That was my first volunteer and I didn’t expect anything before going, and that’s exactly what I recommend everyone to do :)
It was amazing and I had a really good time at Edinburgh Backpackers Hostel. I felt home and I created a new family there, people from all around the world <3
Be ready to climb uncontainable stairs and drink some good (or not so good) whisky!

Bajo mi punto de vista el voluntariado está planteado como un trabajo no un intercambio cultural. El trabajo es intenso, son más 4 hs por día que 3. Mi estadía fue corta y no coincide mucho con la dinámica del hostel que necesita personas por largo plazo.
Como todo depende de lo que uno busque, la ubicación es fantástica, el hostel muy cómodo para vivir, y me cruce con lindas personas.

I absolutely loved my time here at Edinburgh Backpackers! The crew was really nice and inviting. And honestly you couldn't ask for a better location! There is so much to do right around you, you'll never find enough time to do it all!

Thank you Sergio and the team for my time there, I already want to come back!

This was my first volunteering experience and first time staying at a hostel in general, my time at Edinburgh Backpackers Hostel was unforgettable. I've made lifelong friends there in the other volunteers but also guests who had stayed there! The work is easy and goes by quickly with still the rest of the day to enjoy the beautiful city. Counting down the days until i get to see my hostel family again, thank you for having me <3
