CoDE was my first experience volunteering through Worldpackers and it has exceeded my expectations. I have met incredible friends from all over the world and I have loved every minute of exploring Edinburgh. The hostel is in a great location and has good, clean facilities. Declan & Ile are so welcoming and have agreed to keep me on for longer- thanks team! I would definitely recommend volunteering at CoDE.

The location is spectacular, beautiful and full of intriguing history. The place is a big step above your common hostel in quality and presentation. The work is easy but repetitive. The team and manager are very welcoming, kind and helpful. It's very easy to feel part of a family and make great friends with the people you meet here.

Anyone I met reading this, I miss you 😄❤

I met such nice people and had so much fun in the last 2 months. It was awesome. Edin is gorgeous. CoDE has a pleasant environment and kind staff, everyone feels like family. The building has a great structure and also the pods are good for sleeping, (ask to change the color of your pod :). I really enjoyed every moment. Hope to see you soon folks. Thank you very much and a big hug :) cheers
