We are constantly looking to expand our volunteer family here at the Art Hostel. We are looking for individuals who are friendly, sociable and proactive to help out. Activities will depend on the shift, however it will mainly be housekeeping, cleaning and reception. It is a great opportunity to explore West Yorkshire and to submerge yourself in the art scene Leeds has to offer. If this interests you give us a shout !Learn more

Such a fun place to work and stay. I met so many amazing people. The beds are comfortable, the hostel is clean, and lively, and unique. Rhian is a great manager; very well organized, instructive, and incredibly kind and welcoming. I could not have asked for a better experience. I miss this place already.
I had an amazing time in Art Hostel. Rhian, the manager, and the rest of staff are lovely. They are always willing to help you with everything you need and make you feel comfortable . They also are flexible with the rota. The duties are really easy and you have a lot of free time to visit other cities. Thanks to all the Art Hostel staff for making me feel at home and being like my family during my time with all of you!
It was my first time volunteering and it was really good!! The people in charge of the hostel are amazing, they were always really nice and helpful. The other volunteers I met were also really nice. They are like a big family and they made me feel at home from day 1.
The hostel has a very cool vibe, Leeds is a nice city, the shifts are very soft and they teach you everything you need to know. As you only work 3x per week, you have plenty of time to explore other cities and to do whatever you like.
Just want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that I met during my stay in Leeds!!!
