The Experience

Hey, buddy! Our shift is 3 nights a week (11:30-6:30 alongside a full-time staff member). You'd be doing some simple cleaning in the common areas and bathrooms, prepping breakfast as well as doing checks of the building to keep our guests happy and safe throughout the night.

Amazing group of people and a really cool experience, the location is perfect, the beds are very comfy and private to sleep! Everything is very clean always. You have plenty of time to go out. The task are not difficult and with the night shifts you have more time for you. I’m very happy of this experience in this hostel... I liked so much that I extended my volunteering... :)
I’m really happy and grateful!



I have just left but already want to go back. The Code is for sure one of the best hostels I’ve ever been to. The job is easy, the working hours are fair and the breakfast the offer us is really good with many options. They also have many activities for the guests that we can join.
I have no words to describe the staff. They are the best people in the world. I felt welcome and at home from the moment that I arrived at the hostel.
I want to thank everyone that was part of my stay, because of you I had the best time in Edinburgh.
Sooner than later I’ll be back
Thank you for everything



Code has been one of the best experiences I've had, talking about it, it's talking about the incredible people who work there, the location is excellent, I've made wonderful friends and I've met Edinburgh in a way that I would never have imagined.
thank you Charis and all the amazing staff for this awesome experience !!



The Code is an amazing place! Charis is great and warm host and I had a great time in Edinburgh! The staff is really friendly and the hostel is brand new, confortable and perfectly located. Breakfast is diverse and delicious (you can make your own waffles!). The job is very very easy and the staff makes it even more simple and organized. The only thing I regret is not staying longer. I wish everybody there all the best and I'll definitely step by to say hello if I'm in Edinburgh again. Thanks a lot for everything!



Simplemente genial!!! Recomiendo la experiencia totalmente.
