Absolutely loved my experience at EBH! Great for first time volunteers. The work is very manageable and expectations are clear. Just be prepared for lots of stairs ;)

i had a wonderful time in Edinburgh at Edinburgh backpackers :) There is tonnes to do in and around Edinburgh and the work is only 2-3 hours a day. the hostel became a second home to me even if i was a little intimidated at first. my advice is to give yourself time to adjust. this was my third time volunteering and i’ve learnt that each experience is totally different in a great way. for example there are 15 volunteers at any one time! so lots of opportunities to make friends :) i’m super super grateful for the friends i made there and to Sergio for making everyone feel welcome. thank you ⭐️

I’ve had a wonderful first Worldpackers experience at Edinburgh Backpacker’s Hostel. Edinburgh is a very beautiful and vibrant city. The hostel is perfectly located in the centre, with many bars and pubs a 3 min walk away.
The managers and volunteers are all very nice and welcoming. The work is easy and goes by quick so there is plenty of time to explore Edinburgh and even other parts of Scotland on your days off.
It is a great place to enjoy the city and make new friends :)

So glad I had the opportunity to volunteer here for a while. Everyone is super nice and welcoming, I loved the vibes in the hostel and the working hours were always respected. Plus I can assure you won’t find a better location! I leave with great memories and I would definitely come back. I would recommend this experience to anyone :)

It has been a unique experience! It was my first time volunteering in a hostel, and I will definitely do it again! The staff and the atmosphere with the volunteers is one of the best things I've taken away from Edinburgh. The work is done with ease and with the help of the other volunteers and staff.
The hostel is located in a very central area which is great for going out and getting to know the city.
I am very grateful for the two months I have spent there, they have made me feel at home.
