Art Hostel

Volunteer at the Art Hostel in Leeds, UK; Later this year, East Street Arts is opening a brand new Art Hostel in Leeds. We are looking for volunteers to join our helpful, friendly and tight-knit team! You’ll play a vital role in running the hostel, providing our guests with the very best service. Whether you’re looking to gain invaluable experience within the arts or hospitality sector, immerse yourself within another culture in a UK city, or work hard and have fun with a great bunch of people, a volunteering stint at the Art Hostel offers something for everyone. Find out about the roles available and apply to be part of the Art Hostel volunteering family! About the Art Hostel; In 2016, we transformed a derelict three-storey building on Leeds’ oldest street into a unique and affordable pop-up hostel for touring artists and travellers; a portal to the creative and cultural underbelly of the city. We were inspired by our experiences across Europe, where cities welcome artists and performers and the unique characteristics they bring to a place. We saw an opportunity to build something similar in Leeds where the role of host takes centre stage. Hospitality is our lifeblood. From warm welcomes to heartfelt goodbyes, we make sure those who interact with the Art Hostel are hosted from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave us. Primarily run by our team of dedicated volunteers, the hostel provides a valuable opportunity or those wanting to immerse themselves in the culture of the UK, as well as those looking to gain hospitality experience. In 2021, we will open a brand new Art Hostel in the Mabgate area of Leeds. From there, we will draw on our relationships with the local artistic community to provide access to unique cultural experiences and use the spaces within the building to create one-off events, exhibitions and opportunities for guests to meet with artists and performers in a relaxed environment. The Art Hostel was developed by East Street Arts, an arts' charity which exists to champion artists. www.arthostel.org.uk @arthostelleeds

We are a small friendly team made up of local staff & volunteers and live-in volunteers from all over the world. We are cheerful, friendly and welcoming! We love getting to know our live-in volunteers and we're always sad to see you leave.

Art Hostel was my very first experience as a volunteer and could not be better. Rhian, Jess and all the team are so nice and gave me a very warm welcome. I felt as I was home.
The tasks are super easy and notable at the same time. I was super lucky to have a great volunteers at the same period as well and this is the best part to me: get to know new people for every part of the world. I had the chance to meet people from Spain, France, Australia, Uruguay etc. Thanks Art Hostel, I will be always grateful for this time with you all. Hope to be back one day. xxx

AY UP LUV !
I've already written this word thousand times (and in different languages) on my goodbye note but THANK YOU again, you made my first travelling experience incredible and unforgettable. I highly recommend this hostel for everyone wanting to meet big-hearted people and living a family-like experience. It was a pleasure to be part of the loving art hostel family and I'm definitely gonna miss everyone but also the yummy Tuesday Tea (thank you Jess for the super vegan recipes) !
Another BIG THANKS dedicated to the wonderful manager Rhian who is just brilliant, always smiling ♥

I`m sad because 4 weeks weren`t enough to know everyone there but I`m grateful for each one in this hostel, each volunteer has them own way of being and maybe this`s what makes this place so complete and harmonic, you can make party and you can have deeper chats about your dreams, the mean of life or share advice that change the way that you think forever. I learned a lot, about work and about myself, I left more confidence in my English and I`m glad for all of this. Thank you so much, and for sure you`ve got a piece of my heart. Many thanks for all.
