The Hostel

Hey everybody, let me tell you about this place a bit. This hostel is open for few years already, but unfortunately a period of poor management led to a downturn in reviews. We are building a new team with the goal of reinventing this place. We aim to create friendly atmosphere, to offer clean and comfortable stay for all guests as well as to offer them advice on how to have the best experience possible when they visit Edinburgh. We need people who are ready to accept this challenge and help us out! PS: For us diversity and inclusion are extremely important, be it equality, gender, sexual orientation, race, nationality. We take this in consideration in our volunteering. More information, follow us on instagram @thehosteledi

Immediately I fell in love with the environment and atmosphere we were starting to create here. Originally only staying for 1 month, I have now been here 3 months and have taken on the position of Leader for at least the next month with the goal of continuing to improve this already amazing Hostel! I am an Australian former Mechanical Engineer, who quit his job to travel the world. I love learning, I love conversation and I love meeting people. I believe that a good Hostel encourages all of those things and much more, hence why I have fallen in love with this way of living and still find myself out here! Feel free to get in touch! @adam.clune

The time I spend at the hostel was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life.

I was able to grow as a person and meet so many interesting, open and lovely people there. I am very grateful for this experience and thankful to all the people, that I could get to know and who welcomed me with open arms. Soon the hostel became my home.☀️

I wish everyone all the best!
Thank you! ❤️

Going to The Hostel was one of the best choices of my life. Everything that I wanted to live as a volunteer I lived here. Since the beginning, I was very welcomed and they made me feel at home. The Hostel is a magical place where all people are connected, each one helping and supporting each other. I made many friends, laughed a lot and lived unforgettable moments. The staff is wonderful and they’re always there to help us with everything. If you ever come to The Hostel, enjoy every moment, because you’re going to miss every second! Thank you so much for this opportunity ❤️

My experience at The Hostel was amazing!
The staff is helpful and flexible with working hours and days off. Thanks to them, work never felt like actual work.
I felt at home as soon as I arrived. The people are friendly and warm. I discovered other cultures and practised many languages by talking and listening to guests and volunteers. It has helped me a lot to widen my view of the world while making new friends in the process.
I highly recommend it!
