This was my first time volunteering, and I absolutely loved my time at the hostel! ❤️ Everyone was so welcoming from my first day and I met some of the most amazing people in my life. The work itself was easy, fair and flexible and I had plenty of time to explore the city. Will definitely miss Edinburgh, the vibe of the hostel and everyone I met during my stay here :)

The hostel was one of the best volunteers I've had. The location is perfect, Edinburgh is a beautiful city and I felt welcomed since day one! The manager was the best manager I ever had and the people I met there was absolutely the best. I hope to come back soon :) I highly recommend this experience

My experience at the hostel was amazing. I spent about one month and I really enjoyed because of the staff. Here you have the opportunity to meet people from all around the world and Stephanie is a lovely person, she always incites us to make group. The room and the bathroom is not so good but dont' worry you'll get used to that. Furthermore The job is very easy and you have a lot of time to visit the city, which is stunning!
