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.

I had the best time at the ART Hostel!! Rhian was always helping and always making sure that we were well, I felt very welcomed by her and all the staft members and volunteers. There I could make good friends who I'll remember forever! The Art Hostel is the right place for you if you want to meet new people and feel comfortable, as your home.
I hope to be back one day!
Thank you for everything.

Absolutely loved volunteering here! The hostel is super cozy and comfortable to live in. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. The hours are super reasonable only have to work 2 days a week leaving lots of time to travel :) and also long as you provide your travel days in advance shifts can be moved around. Leeds was also the perfect central location to see the UK. Would highly recommend volunteering here if you love cozy environments and the kindest hosts!!

A wonderful first volunteer experience! The staff is so kind and welcoming. While you’re here you feel like family. The hostel itself is cozy, clean, and unique and Leeds is a great location if you’re looking to explore northern England. I learned a lot while I was here and would love to come back in the future :)

The art hostel is amazing. The staff, volunteers, and even guests are some of the kindest, most welcoming, and all around fun people I have ever met! The work is not difficult and the hours are very fair. The hostel truly feels like home and the community here is unrivaled by anywhere else I have stayed. Before I came here, I never would have imagined feeling so connected to a city I knew nothing about, but after my time here I know I will always have a home in Leeds, and I will have to return some day. I could not have asked for a better volunteering experience and I recommend to anyone!
