Lagan Backpackers was a really good first experience of volunteering. I stayed for a month & had some great volunteers to work alongside. The hours and tasks are as described: Cleaning, reception, breakfast shifts and you get training for all. The managers Melissa and Conor are great & very flexible with hours/days off if you have things you want to do. The staff room could do with some work, it felt cramped at times but the experience outweighed that! Definitely a good experience and would recommend to anyone starting out volunteering. Thank you to Melissa, Conor & all the pals I made!

it was amazing !!! The hostel is very friendly, I was able to make friends from different places and I will take it to life. what I thought was coolest was that there wasn’t much difference between volunteers and guests, everyone was always together. About work, is also very light, and they are very relax with everything. Only point that could improve is about the volunteers' room that needs some change. but for me, my experience overcame that. It was my first volunteering and you can learn a lot, thanks for this experience! 🇧🇷

This was my first volunteer experience in a hostel and it was much better than I expected. Connor and Melissa were always helpfull, comprehensives and flexible... She even dyed my hair! haha and cooked us a really nice Christmas lunch. The job is as described and it's not difficult at all... You'll have plenty of time to enjoy Belfast (that is a nice city with a lot of beautiful parks). I was lucky because the volunteers that were there with me were super nice and we worked as a team. I strongly recommend Lagan to all volunteers looking for a good place to enjoy. Thanks for everything! :)
