My experience in Edinburgh and volunteering at Royal Mile Backpackers was excellent. The staff is lovely and helpful. The volunteers feel welcome and at home. The hostel is in a great location, and the work is easy. I would definitely recommend volunteering at Royal Mile Backpackers.

Such a great experience! Orla and Jake were extremely kind and inclusive. The work was organized and exactly what was stated on worldpackers. I met so many amazing people and am so lucky I got to volunteer here. Thank you Orla and Jake for a wonderful time! Already miss Royal Mile Backpackers!
