Being there was amazing!
It was my 5th volunteer, but the first in a hostel.
The group of people was very nice (there were 11 of us at the time). Chris, Hervé and Virgin have been very attentive and kind with me.
Working hours were always respected, having 3 days a week off allowed me to get to know many parts of the beautiful Scotland.
It is a place I would go back!

I couldn’t imagine a better first experience as a volunteer! I was very well received in the hostel and I met a lot of great people. In general, the staff or volunteers will always be there to help you if needed. The work required is not very complicated and doesn't take much time. The many free times allow you to easily discover the beauty of Scotland but also to enjoy the various facilities of the hostel. I hope to be able to come back one day!

I don't know how to sum up in the word gratitude all the wonderful experience I had in Dundee. The hostel staff, Chris, Virginie, Hervé and the guests Adrian and Dareel that I had contact with are amazing people. Everyone made me feel at home. Tasks were well established. In a short time you learn everything you need to do. I had time to get to know Dundee and the surrounding towns. In less than a month I met people from more than seven countries. I made friendships that I will carry for life. It was an incredible experience for me. I only have good things to say.

I stayed a month in Dundee with the best team ever and I really loved to be there. The hostel is fantastic and has so many different stories. The best games room is there and I had a lot of fun with the team. The staff were amazing with me and I learned a lot with them. The city has a lot of little places to visit and and the experience was really wonderful. I am super thankfull and l'll miss my place in Scotland.
