Testimonials

Working at Kick Ass Hostels was one of the most enjoyable periods of my life so far. I moved to Edinburgh knowing no-one and within a week of arriving had been offered a job as part of the Reception team. The team at Kick Ass Hostels quickly became family and the hostel became home.

The work itself also rarely felt like actual work with there always being something fun and exciting to get involved in. Plus there was always opportunities to learn more and progress through the company. I spent 14 wonderful months working for Kick Ass Hostels and was very sad to leave. Were it not for visa restrictions I would be back there in an instant!
