Belford Youth Hostel

Our hostel is in a converted church located near Dean Village in Edinburgh’s beautiful West End. It is the perfect place for people looking to meet new people and explore the wonders that Edinburgh and Scotland have to offer!

We are a fun and energetic backpacker’s hostel with a great staff “family” with volunteers from all over the world, including Australia, Germany, France, Belgium, Italy and South Africa. We look after each other, work hard and treat each other and the hostel with respect - we expect the same from our volunteers!

I recommend it 100%, the hostel staff is charming, very friendly, attentive to any request and make us feel good at all times. I found myself in a very familiar atmosphere. I would definitely repeat this experience in this hostel. I remember very good moments, I will never forget it.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and didn’t know what to expect. Everyone was super friendly and met so many different people from around the world ! The work was fairly straight forward and easy to do and gave me enough time to explore the city.

Taz always made sure there was food for staff, 3 times a week he would bring free food which helped a lot and was greatly appreciated. We would often have a roast once a week which was great to get to know the other volunteers I overall had a great stay :)

This experience was my first volunteering abroad and could not be better! The team is very welcoming and the shift was quite easy during the winter. The staff people are reliable and willing. They helped me a lot always with good humor and good energy. I have met lovely people there! The hostel is cool and very well located. The only negative thing that I could say is the size of the bedroom. In fact it was too small for the quantity of volunteers and also not clean enough.

Wonderful experience! The people there made it feel like home, the supervisors are fun and really try to be as helpful as possible. Communication is easy, even with a basic english level. They never asked me to do any kind of dangerous or unpleasent tasks. Working hours can vary per day, but 15h per week are respected with extras days off if needed (I've never worked more than 4,5h in a day). Staff room is ok and it's important to talk to your roomates to organize a weekly cleaning routine. You can usually get free food twice a week and have group meals together sometimes. Best wishes to all!

My first ever volunteering experience and I must say that I loved it besides me getting sick. From day 1, the managers made me feel very welcome and explained to me everything that I need to know. If you’re really social and open to meet new people you can bond really well with the other volunteers and have a great time. The work is doable and pretty easy. The building is very cold in the winter months so beware, and the staff room of 8 people is also tight and could use improvement. But overall, I had a genuinely good time and met a lot of great people that I’ll never forget! 🤗
