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!

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!

Wonderful, fun staff in a beautiful well maintained hostel. The views are stunning even in winter and it’s easy to explore Anstruther and nearby towns on foot or by bus. Work is evenly distributed and more than fair for what you receive in return. Fantastic kitchen to cook meals in. Loved it here.

I had a wonderful time working with MLH! Anstruther is a charming, refreshing little town on the coast and the work is relaxing and personal. Yann is a great person and friend. I would totally recommend this experience.

Mi experiencia en el Hostel fue muy buena. Estuve ahi por tres semanas y me he sentido realmente bien. Tanto Yann ( el manager) como el staff que compartí tiempo ( Gloria, Cristina y Anne) son excelentes personas y fue muy lindo compartir ese tiempo con ellos. Me llevo un grato recuerdo.
El hostel es nuevo, y está muy lindo y limpio todo. Por lo que te sentirás super cómodo como en casa.
El pueblo es pequeño, pero tiene su encanto. Es un lugar mas que nada para estar tranquilo y caminar al lado del mar.

About the host

You can see from the comments, they came, the saw, they liked! Volunteers are the heartbeat of the hostel, pacing at its own rhythm, always a surprise, and always a good one!
