Residential Hostel Placement – Volunteering (2 to 12 Weeks Placement)

Is life a little boring? Fed up of the same old view out of the window? It’s definitely time to try something new!

We have residential placements available at some well-loved hostels. City, country or coastal, the choice is yours! Our hostel placements are perfect if you would like to gain hospitality experience, get away from home and lend a hand. Hostel Placement volunteers assist the team of staff with tasks including serving meals, housekeeping and reception. Our friendly teams will give you a warm welcome and support you throughout your volunteering. You don’t need any experience – just enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved!

Best of all, in your free time you can visit the local attractions or explore the countryside near the hostel.
