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).

The hostel is simply amazing! I would recommend everyone to volunteer here :) We (the volunteers) had completely freedom to choose the activities we wanted, we met very good friends and enjoyed nature a lot. I will miss Bergen and its nature very much, also Baunehytten and making waffles for hikers/guests. Hope to come back in the future ❤️

Volunteering at the hostel was probably my best volunteering experience; since the very first day I was warmly welcomed by the staff, the tasks are very easy and enjoyable so much that I've never really felt the need for a day off; volunteers are always free to organise what they feel in therms of activities and they always have the maximum support by the rest of the staff. I got to know not only the international travelers that everyday come and go, but also some of the locals that hang out at the hostel. A lot of nature, fun and chill vibes. Thanks to the hostel for this opportunity!

I had the best experience in the hostel, the time really flew by! All the staff is super kind and welcoming, the volunteering work is great, the freedom in choosing the daily activities allowed us to really discover Bergen and its surroundings. The tasks really emphasize on the social aspect of the hostel, you meet guests from all over the world during the activities and coffee&cookies. And what a better way to end the week than going to Baunehytten on Sundays and baking waffles in this lovely cabin! Thanks to the hostel crew for making this experience amazing :)

The hostel is the perfect place to be a volunteer! The staff really takes care of the volunteers, they're all about making our and the guests lives more fun, they are very welcoming and flexible. The tasks make possible for the volunteers to really work together, choose the activities independently and experience the life in Bergen. I met so many amazing people from all around the world, some friendships were born. It's a perfect place for hiking a lot, get to know Norwegian culture and socialize. Thank you for everything!
