Global Village

We are a small independently run hostel in Belfast. Currently rated number 1 in Northern Ireland on hostelworld. We like to have people work with us who are friendly and outgoing, who are here to get something from this experience, socialize with the guests and staff, create a buzz and be a contributing character and presence to the hostel. In exchange for free accommodation in our 6 bed mixed staff dorm you will be required to work up to 3-4 hours a day either cleaning the hostel and making beds in the morning or 6 hour reception duties during the day plus 1 night shift per week which is from 8pm to 8am. After your night shift you get the next day and one extra day off! We are a super friendly and chilled out hostel with artwork on nearly every wall which guests who are artists have done while they have stayed with us. We see it more of a homely feel hostel as the volunteers stay on site and they treat it as if it were their home. We do ask for a minimum stay of 1 month so you can learn the ropes and get familiar with the hostel and get to have a real feel for the city.

Hi! My name is Antti. I'm from Finland and have been traveling around whenever i have a chance since 2010. I'm a pretty laid back and relaxed kinda guy, I found this gem of hostels when i was travelling in Ireland late 2016, started to volunteer at Global Village 2017. and became a manager in here 2019. When i started i found the place to be really fun and relaxed and everyone very welcoming. The owner, Mark, is a really friendly, young Irish guy who has traveled the world and has designed the hostel to what travelers expect from a hostel. He also has a cool little Boston terrier dog named Buju that never leaves his side! He's pretty cool! Over the past 2 years i have been in and out of the hostel traveling and working, and no matter how long i leave for i have always been welcomed back by Mark. I've travelled through roughly 50 countries and i'm always happy to meet people around the world . If you choose to stay and volunteer with us you will have full unlimited access to all the facilities here at GV including Netflix, Xbox, 4 guitars and 2 amps, keyboard and a cajone! Free unlimited internet and apple macs, free pool table and Foosball table, free kitchen facilities (2 ovens and stoves, 2 sinks, microwave, pots and pans and cutlery) free pasta, spices, rice, bread, jam, cereal, milk and free laundry facilities! We only have 48 beds so it is considered a small hostel but we are very concentrated on the guest/volunteer interaction. This results in a much better experience for both guest and volunteer. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, we look forward to hearing from you and possibly meeting you! Cheers, Antti

Unfortunately, I had only 4 weeks to stay here, was an amazing and fruitful experience. From the first moment I felt at home in a very good and friendly atmosphere, perfect to meet cool people all over the world.It's the best way to share and exchange your experiences with them, learning about their cultures, improve languages skills and most of all have new friends.The staff are so nice,always helpful and willing to teach you the different tasks.The job is very easy,you don't feel any pressure.Thereby you have a lot of free time to discover the city and Ireland;)I will definitely recommend it

“Hello, Global Village”
Since day one Global Village received me as part of the family, they made the entire experience in Ireland even better! The work is really fair and you have a lot of free time to enjoy the city!! The location of the hostel is quite good, close to the city center, nice pubs and the main attractions of the city!! I truly connected with this place and people I met there! My time at GV will never be forgotten ❤️ MISS YOU GUYS! That’s might be the reason I keep coming back almost every two days hahah

Staying here is really comfortable even being miles away from home. The manager (Anti) and the owner (Mark) are both very nice people and let all volunteers feeling like home, they are flexible in volunteer needs and always hear from us.

The crew is very easy to get along, the vibe of having only volunteers as the staff makes everyone do their part of the job and have a nice and fun environment like a family.

Everything flows here is such good energy to be here. I asked to stay more and I am extending my stay for more 20 days. I just have to thank Global Village for everything.

I just love Global Village. Its people and atmosphere. Antti (tghe manager)and Mark (the owner) are just the perfect hosts, kind, funny and always willing to help you out. The amount of work is very fair and you have plenty of time to explore Belfast and its surroundings. I adore this city. The tours are also free for the volunteers which is great! Thank you for everything, I love you all!!! I'll see you again in May 💗

Wonderful month at Global Village! I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel; the work is not hard and you always have free time to Explore Belfast and other places. You'll have the opportunity to meet many people from all over the world, talk with them, share experience and of course have fun! Even if you'll have to pay for your own food you'll get discounts on many things (tours, pub..), free accomodation and free breakfast! So it's worth it! I met wonderful people there and I'll miss all of them! If you are looking for a great experience in a beautiful city you shouldn't miss it!
