I had amazing five weeks at Dan Hostel the hostel collaborating with Karen their Marketing Director on all things related SoMe. I really enjoyed my time there and would like to congratulate Lilian the manager for her leadership and the Danish receptionists for their charm and coolness. Met a lot of fellow Latinos with whom I shared a room and many experiences and meals and had enough time to explore the beautiful Aarhus during my leisure time! Super recommended! <3

It was my first experience being volunteer and it was amazing. No wonder the best thing is I met people from different countries and I could have nice time with them. Receptionists always tried to help us, even whit my english level that is not the best they always tried to understand me and have nice talks to improve it. I would recommend the hostel totally

I had an awesome experience volunteering in the hostel. The team and volunteers were incredibly welcoming from the start, making me feel right at home. The tasks assigned were straightforward, and I appreciated that the working hours were always respected. The team provided food for volunteers to prepare their own meals. Occasionally, we even cooked together, which was a great opportunity to bond and socialize with others. Overall, my experience was great and the hostel is conveniently located in the heart of Aarhus, which is a stunning the hostel that I would recommend to anyone. Tusind tak!

Staying there was a truly pleasant experience. The staff always tried to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Everything about the shifts was properly organised and the tasks conveniently sorted to be carried out by the volunteers. The hostel centric location made it easy to go around town without the use of public transport. All reasons why I'm utterly grateful and couldn't ask more from them during my 2 month stay.

The hostel was my first experience as a volunteer and fortunately it was wonderful 🇩🇰❤️. Not only the staff but also the mates were friendly and kind in every moment. I could learn a lot think concerning to work in a hostel, they taught me with calmness. In addition, Denmark is a country full of nice people. In terms of accommodation, the hostel is totally cozy.
