The Experience

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 plus night shift duties. It's 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!

I`m sad because 4 weeks weren`t enough to know everyone there but I`m grateful for each one in this hostel, each volunteer has them own way of being and maybe this`s what makes this place so complete and harmonic, you can make party and you can have deeper chats about your dreams, the mean of life or share advice that change the way that you think forever. I learned a lot, about work and about myself, I left more confidence in my English and I`m glad for all of this. Thank you so much, and for sure you`ve got a piece of my heart. Many thanks for all.

My experience at Art Hostel was great! I met amazing people, I broke out of my comfort zones, had interesting conversations and gained a different insight of UK! I would definitely recommend it, the place is very chill and the people really friendly! Rhian is the most smiley and cute host I have ever encounter! You'll love this place, plus it's in the city center and you can go almost everywhere on foot!
