The Experience

The social volunteer undertakes activities such as: hikes, games, quizzes, barbecue, cultural kitchen, talk, more hikes, fishing, sightseeing, coffee and cookies, waffle baking, music – all in the name of cultural exchange and bringing people together. But most important is perhaps the conversations during coffee and cookies in the afternoon. Please note we can only host volunteers from EU/Schengen (or people holding an EU/Schengen passport).

This experience was amazing! Thanks to everyone on the team I had a great time in Oslo and I really enjoyed meeting a lot of new people from all around the world. This volunteering experience was the best I've ever had and I'm very happy I got to experience it!

It was the most amazing volunteering experience I have ever had! (and I did quite a few) thanks to the team and the super cool atmosphere I was available to learn so much and explore. I'm very grateful of having this opportunity, its 10000% recommendable :)

This was my first volunteering experience, and it was above my expectations! Everyone in the hostel is very welcoming and ready to help you. When you arrive, the previous volunteers explain to you everything you need to know to manage the activities. Thanks to this experience, every day you can meet many people from all around the world, discover the city, its museums and the nature which is so close! You can express your creativity, proposing activities for the guests and creating content for the Instagram account of the hostel. If you are new to this platform, come to the hostel!

This Hostel is absolutely perfect for a first experience in social volunteering, they open the program this summer and the guest of the Hostel are always glad to participate in games, hiking or Museum visits. All the reception team really take care of me and give me good advises, and offer their time and friendship. The place is beautiful and I was surrounded by forest and close to important parks and atractions in Oslo. I use to cook the lunch or dinner in the kitchen of the hostel and we share magical moments. I enjoy a lot this experience and recommend to everyone.
