The Experience

We just opened, our aim is to create the best hostel of the area if not Scotland, staff are the most important part of a hostel and the reason why guests like it or hate it. We love when staff are happy, and share happiness with others. We also love when staff helps with reception and cleaning task, but we even love more when they bring their touch and ideas to the place.

Wonderful, fun staff in a beautiful well maintained hostel. The views are stunning even in winter and it’s easy to explore Anstruther and nearby towns on foot or by bus. Work is evenly distributed and more than fair for what you receive in return. Fantastic kitchen to cook meals in. Loved it here.

I had a wonderful time working with MLH! Anstruther is a charming, refreshing little town on the coast and the work is relaxing and personal. Yann is a great person and friend. I would totally recommend this experience.

Mi experiencia en el Hostel fue muy buena. Estuve ahi por tres semanas y me he sentido realmente bien. Tanto Yann ( el manager) como el staff que compartí tiempo ( Gloria, Cristina y Anne) son excelentes personas y fue muy lindo compartir ese tiempo con ellos. Me llevo un grato recuerdo.
El hostel es nuevo, y está muy lindo y limpio todo. Por lo que te sentirás super cómodo como en casa.
El pueblo es pequeño, pero tiene su encanto. Es un lugar mas que nada para estar tranquilo y caminar al lado del mar.

It has been my first Worldpackers experience and it has been fantastic!!
You to love the nature, the landscapes just go to this place - calm and beautiful walks along the costal path visiting little villages of Scotland, quite close to Saint Andrews and Edinburgh, places with a special charm.
But apart from the wonderful atmosphere you are surrounded, the point which made my stay enjoyable was the staff and the manager -they make you feel at home.
Therefore, I strongly recommend this experience and this place to live it.

I spent three weeks in the ML hostel this summer, and my experience was amazing! Best hostel I ever been to; it doesn't matter if you are a guest or a member of the staff, you'll feel like home :)
The work wasn't too tiring and I had a lot of free time to relax, take photographs and visit beautiful places. Yann is a really nice person and is really friendly with the volunteers, there's an enjoyable atmosphere in the hostel. Don't hesitate to apply!

About the host

You can see from the comments, they came, the saw, they liked! Volunteers are the heartbeat of the hostel, pacing at its own rhythm, always a surprise, and always a good one!
