The best volunteering experience I've had. The staff is amazing, the work is smooth and flexible and the location of the hostel is perfect. I made friends that I will take for life, thank you so much for everything CoDE.

The month at CoDe was amazing and an unique experience! I’m truly glad and happy for the opportunity to being part of this group! The job is easy to do but you do some exercises at housekeeping! The place is really great, and the people in there is the best, I really miss them! All conversations, time together, hug, going out and having fun! Edinburgh now have a special place in my heart!

This was my first volunteering experience and all my time at CoDE was great in many ways. The structure of the hostel, the showers, beds and breakfast are really good. But by far the best part of the hostel is the team. Both volunteers and staff members are mostly people who make your stay better.

About the housekeeping, on ​​most days it is very tiring. On some days it will be very quiet, with few beds to make. On other days it will take you almost the entire shift.

If you're planning to apply to volunteer at CoDE for a month or two, it will be worth it!

This was my first experience on Worldpackers and I couldn’t have asked for better!
The hostel is in a great location and has all the facilities you need, plus the pods are super comfortable! The team is amazing, I met some incredible people with whom I shared unforgettable moments 😍
I’m gonna miss this place and I would definitely recommend volunteering at CoDE!

My first volunteering on Worldpackers and it was unforgettable. Obviously, there's no way to complain about the location, the infrastructure is also amazing (the hostel is HUGE with more than 200 beds sooo, be prepared!), but the highlight of CoDE... What makes it worthy of these 5 stars: the people! Team CoDE, the real hands that make it all happen, day after day. I lived moments of complete dream, but I also lived some of the worst days of my life, and in all my personal difficulties the CoDE family was ready to hug me, listen to me, talk with me. Tnks guys, you're amazing. I'll miss u all.
