My time at the Light House Hostel was amazing! What I enjoyed the most was feeling part of a big family and engaging with both other volunteers and travellers.The atmosphere at the hostel was friendly and cozy,the job reasonable. I really appreciated their interest in both my personal and professional growth. Both Ricky and Wing gave me useful advice that will help me in my future life and job. I would definitly recomend this experience . I'm sure that if you are willing to get involved, challenge yourself and your limits yoy'll have a wonderful enriching experience and make lifelong friends:)

My experience at Light House Hostel was very good. At the hostel, I worked on average 6 hours a day with two free days a week, which allowing me to take time to visit Edinburgh. This is a quiet, cozy, clean hostel with a very good environment. What I consider most important in my journey in Light House were the people. Me and the other volunteers had a very good relationship, where we spent time together like a real family. My relationship with Wing and Ricky was also very good. They helped me a lot during my stay. In this sense I truly recommend the hostel for a volunteer experience.
