Volunteering at LHA Holland House was an experience that I had not planned on having, yet somehow needed. It allowed me to meet some incredible people from all around the world, build a little space to call home and grow within myself. I felt so welcomed and always had opportunities to ask for help; It is a perfect place to feel supported in your Worldpackers experience. The hostel is so charming and it could not be in a better location. The staff provides the schedule in advance and is very respectful of your time. Thank you Matteo, all the other staff members and residents!

The other volunteers were wonderful.
I am grateful for this opportunity. Nonetheless I need to mention this: Apparently there was changes in the management recently and this lead to an environment in which I did not feel respected and trusted anymore. Every day there was another scheme going on to kick someone out or talking bad about them behind their back and we were constantly checked on while working. It was always blamed on the previous manager. I felt like it was a really disorganized and controlling way to manage things. Tasks were unclear and I was never trained properly.

Hello Melanie,

thank you for bringing this to our attention. We’re truly sorry to hear you had a bad experience. We’ll strive to do better.

Thanks again for your support, we wish you all the best :)



Flavio un amor y me escucho y ayudo siempre que lo necesite, hizo que mi experiencia fuera hermosa a pesar de que habian algunos temas como por ejemplo el trabajo, hay personas como yo que trabajabamos mucho mas que otras y nadie notaba hasta que un dia hable con Flavio y me escucho y aconsejo.
No es un lugar para fiestas ni nada,pero tu puedes salir por tu cuenta.
En el tema de habitacion son en subterraneo con una ventana chica pero el olor en general es pesimo al igual que en las piezas y los baños y ducha de voluntarios huelen pesimo y si quieres ducharte mejor debes limpiar tu

I’m so grateful to Matteo for helping me to land this opportunity when I had a different opportunity cancel at the last minute. Matteo and Flavio were wonderful to work for and the location of the hostel is 10/10, absolutely such a great place to stay in London! The hostel itself is a bit outdated but the location and team make up for it.
