Danhostel has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. The other volunteers and staff were lovely and made me feel at home right away! You work part of the day, so you still have plenty of time to explore incredible Aarhus! The location is right in the middle of everything, so it’s easy to explore with friends in free time. The volunteer coordinator works to put you in your task of preference to the best of her ability which is greatly appreciated and shows Danhostel’s mission to create a wonderful environment for everyone. Made some life-long friends here and will be returning!

The first week of staying at Danhostel, we could stay in a private room which was amazing especially compared to the last place we stayed at. The work hours are fair and adjustable to your preferences if you notify on time. At the start of the week, the volunteers hand in a list containing what kind of food you want, so make sure you agree and communicate upon what you want. I have had an incredible time here by meeting many people, who are super friendly and nice. I highly recommend Danhostel if you want to have a good time in a clean and comfortable space with lots of different people!

I stayed there for two months and I would have stayed more! The manager and receptionists are strict but super nice and understanding, they value the good work but also enjoy chatting randomly in a daily basis so they always felt accessible and part of the team. The volunteers that I shared with were also an awesome group and the sense of community was always present in the hostel, eating together, playing cards, going on "adventures" around Aarhus, etc.
Thanks to all, I will always cherish you in my memory (and hopefully I'll be back some day to visit) 😄❤️

Overall Aarhus is a wonderful place and even the Hostel itself was cool. I just felt that along with the host and the volunteers there’s more of a private party going on having me felt left out for I don’t know what reason but seemed common background related. Denmark is a beautiful country with the most loveliest people in the world so a foreigner like myself just like the host and volunteers should blend in like how the Danes make us feel in their lovely country where I’ve lived since 2012. Also when it was agreed for me to volunteer for at least three weeks but suddenly they made it a week.

Good experience overall, the hostel is located in the center of the city and it's easy to visit different parts of Aarhus. The city is lovely and I had a great time with the people I met there. The work during high season is intense, I had to work extra time to finish sometimes. But you’re not allowed to take breaks or to finish before when the work is done. I recommend this position for the social experience.

Amazing experience!
I have met beautiful souls :) Aarhus is a very pretty city and a lot of nature really close to it. Work is not difficult and give a lot of time off to enjoy the country.
Thank you for this first great experience as a volunteer.
Lots of love to the amazing team of Danhostel ✨

An amazing bunch of people work here, make you feel right at home and are very welcoming. During our stay pretty much everyone spoke Spanish so we definitely improved that as well! The work was exactly as we expected and was very relaxed and easy. Lots of time to explore the city and chill out. Would love to come back again one day :)

I really enjoyed my time here. The atmosphere between the other volunteers is great and work is easy to be done, but you need to be responsible to do all of your tasks. You also have to work 5 hours, or more if you haven‘t finished, but not less, even if you have finished your tasks.

There are 4 shifts: breakfast (6-11), early cleaning (7-12) cleaning beds (10:30-16:00) evening cleaning (16:00-21:00)
Basically the shifts are cleaning toilets, vacuum, clean kitchen

You sleep in a room with up to 10 people, and can eat any food you want. I recommend it a lot! Thank you!
