Our hostel is located in the West End of Glasgow and welcomes travelers from all over the world. We are popular with groups, individuals, city breakers, backpackers and event-goers.

We are looking for volunteers to assist with the daily hostel duties primarily cleaning, bed changing and welcoming guests. Tasks include: making beds, vacuuming & mopping floors, cleaning, ironing and receptionist. Occasionally you may be expected to be on late check-in duty and welcoming guests arriving late.

We are happy to take totally unqualified/urban students and train you and we are also interested in people who already have experience at either housekeeping and hotel work or any other kind of useful skills. You will be expected to work well on your own.

In exchange for working about 4-5 hours per day for 6 days/week, we provide volunteers accommodation in a 6 bed mixed dorm, free breakfast daily, free laundry service and free WiFi. Not to mention the awesome friends you will make with people from all over the world. Pocket money allowance may also be provided. With a day off you can make the most of exploring Glasgow and Edinburgh and taking advantage of what Scotland has to offer further afield!

We have good transportation links, with a train station and bus stop less than 5 minutes walk. We also have a supermarket (Morrisons) less than 7 minutes walk away.

If you excel and outperform, then could result in a longer-term/permanent role. Due to a last minute cancellation, this role is available now.

Come make some memories with us!
