My experience at Light House Hostel was very good. At the hostel, I worked on average 6 hours a day with two free days a week, which allowing me to take time to visit Edinburgh. This is a quiet, cozy, clean hostel with a very good environment. What I consider most important in my journey in Light House were the people. Me and the other volunteers had a very good relationship, where we spent time together like a real family. My relationship with Wing and Ricky was also very good. They helped me a lot during my stay. In this sense I truly recommend the hostel for a volunteer experience.
