The Experience

The social volunteer undertakes activities such as: hikes, games, quizzes, barbecue, cultural kitchen, talk, more hikes, fishing, sightseeing, coffee and cookies, waffle baking, music – all in the name of cultural exchange and bringing people together. But most important is perhaps the conversations during coffee and cookies in the afternoon. Please note we can only host volunteers from EU/Schengen (or people holding an EU/Schengen passport).

I am grateful for the opportunity to live in such a magic place, our main task is create a good atmosphere and enhance the social interaction between guest, all the guest were really amazing with us, we meet people over all the world.


We share a lot of funny moments during "coffee and cookies", we learn new songs in the Karaoke singing in different languages.
We are so many times outside "hiking" and experience the beauty of the nature in Bergen.

My volunteering experience at Hostel Montana was incredible!

My main responsibilities as a volunteer were to take the guests on activities everyday and serve coffee and cookies in the evening. Running the activities was great fun and I had the opportunity to meet so many travellers from all around the world. What made the experience special for me, was the staff and other volunteers at Montana. Everyone was very friendly, inclusive and helpful with any issues I had. If you are looking to travel, meet people and be part of an international environment, I couldn't recommend Montana enough!

It was a pure pleasure to stay at the Montana Hostel in Bergen. From the first moment on I felt welcomed. The hole stuff is super friendly and kind. As volunteers we organized the activities for the guests like hikes, city tours, movie nights and so on. This was a great opportunity to meet other travelers. If you want to get in touch with the nature Bergen is the best place for a visit or a long-term stay. Thanks to everyone who made this to such a good experience. I’m really glad to spend my stay at the Montana Hostel.

My 6 weeks at Montana have been incredible. The staff is incredibly kind and always ready to help. The environment it's very cozy, and it won't take long until you find yourself at home. You'll do A LOT of hikes (with incredible views). You have a lot of freedom to arrange the activities as it fits you, as long as you coordinate with the other volunteers. You also have the chance to sleep in true norvegian cabin in the mountains, something I totally suggest.
If you like talking and meeting new people and getting in touch with nature, this is the best opportunity you can get!

activities with the guests and It is a great
opportunity to meet other travelers and get

and hiking. We had a lot of flexibility to
arrange the activities and you will feel as a
team with the other volunteers very quickly.
Also the environment in the hostel is
amazing, everyone is very friendly and
professional and you'll get to meet amazing
people from the staff! I am very happy to
have lived this experience in Norway.
