The whole team makes you feel at home right away! You may learn a lot about all the processes involved in running a hostel and the huge complex of buildings is an experience in itself! I would do it again in a heart beat and Im sad to leave- good times!

One of the best experience in my life, meet Dundee and other cities in Scotland was an achievement, in the hostel I did good friendships, the peoples are very kind, helpfull and funny. It's nice could meet a lot of peoples from diferents places in the world, was good for my personal improvement.

I wasn't expecting a lot about working in a hostel, but I got very impressed. The atmosphere of the place, the history and principally the staff made me feel at home. Well, I can say that now I have home in Dundee.
I was very welcome and I learned a lot. Hervé and Laura are the best supervisors that someone can have. They are nice people that are ready to help with anything. I'm so grateful. The work is pretty easy. I'm sad to have to leave but I'm happy for the Amazing experience. Thank you so much for the lovely time in this amazing place and for my new friends! I'm going to miss you guys!
