The Experience

We're the hostel facing the sea, it's scenic, it's peaceful, and it's sunny! We've opened 2 years ago and already built a strong "boutique hostel" reputation. We are looking for a responsible, genuine and cheerful help. Our guests are mainly hikers, amateur sailors, bird watchers, school and uni trippers and also fish and chips eater. We've got constant and good ratings, thanks to many factors, one of them being our helpers!

It's been a pleasure! Jimmy, the manager, is a sociable guy, always ready for helping, having a beer, running, hiking and so on.

The work is easy to do: you start by 10AM, and it consists on cleaning bathrooms and the kitchen, doing beds and vacuuming the hostel. Working in the morning normally takes you 2h and 1/2, so it's very fair. In the afternoon, it's check-in time, which is also quite simple.

In your free time, you can run, hike, play pull, read, listen to live music, have some drinks, and so on.

100% recommendable. Thanks for all and see you soon, guys!

It was a great experience, Jimmy is very cool, funny, and always attentive, without a doubt I would come back! The hostel is very nice and has a room with a projector to watch movies! the city is very quiet but always has a good time with the people of the hostel!

My first experience of volunteer, it’s awesome. The job is easy and every day I have a lot of free time. The team is cool. Jimmy always makes you laugh more . You can meet a lot of people and some of them are interesting and very nice. At last, I don’t want to leave, haha.

To work in the Murray Library hostel was a great experience! The city is small and the hostel is just in front of the sea. The job is easy to be done and usuallly doesn't take more then 4 hours a day. Cleaning time in the morning and at 4pm the check-in happens!
Jimmy is a very kind person, it was really nice to work with him!
I would recommend the place to anyone who's looking for a peaceful and frindly atmosphere to work.

I enjoyed volunteering at this hostel a LOT! The work is pretty easy-- about 2 hours of cleaning rooms in the morning, and then being available to check guests in after 4pm. There is a schedule that is quite fair, and allows everyone to have time to plan time outside of the hostel and travel around Fife! It's a quiet, peaceful town, but with lots of cute fishing towns within walking distance or short bus ride. I loved the hostel, and the guests who stay there are of a nice variety. I loved working here, and would recommend it to anyone who wants some beauty and the peace to enjoy it!
