Learning & Fun




My experience at igloo was ok
All staff members are nice people and try to help you and to training you well
The work is very easy but it’s work
It’s a very chill place
If you expect fun and party isn’t the place to be
but Nottingham had a very good nightlife
But if you expect fun and party isn’t the best place in a world
The only bad point there it’s there is no WiFi and also 4g doesn’t work inside the building
Thanks guys it was a pleasure to be volunteer with you




What to say about this wonderful place? It's been five days since I left Igloo and I miss it already! Everyone welcomed me with such affection that it was hard to say goodbye. So much so that I was supposed to stay six weeks and extended it to almost three months. The work is pretty straightforward and consists of housekeeping and cleaning. It is four hours a day and two days off. To anyone considering volunteering in this awesome place I can just say that you will definitely not find a better place. Okay, now I want to come back =( THANK YOU SO MUCH guys for everything! I'll be back!




Great experience for everyone in Worldpackers, totally recommend it.
The city is full of activities everyday. From parties, to pubs, to tourist attractions.
The staff and other volunteers were very welcoming and warm, they will help you if you ever need something and some even go out with you!.
The work is perfectly fair, never had nor saw any issue, really down to earth staff. Got enough time to visit and go places in the day offs and even after work (depending how far it is of course).
I love you Igloo!!!! Will be back




It was just an amazin experience, my first one as a volunteer. A big thanks to the Igloo family for the warm welcome. The job wasn’t so hard. Furthemor it was only amazing time with the others volunteers and staff. I had a month full of fun.
See you really soon Igloo !

I’m really sad to leave this amazing place, I loved my experience at Igloo. Unforgettable. I couldn’t choose better place to stay, it was perfect for my necessities.
I just want to say thank you all the staffs. They are very friendly and fun to be around.
Everyone work hard to make not only a great hostel but a great family, is my second family now.
The shifts are well organized and there is still pleanty of time to explore the city.
I enjoyed my time, I met great people. I’m very happy for being part of it.
I totally recommend this place.
I wish you all the best.
