Our hostel is one of the biggest in Algarve, and we have the most amazing staff, so we would love to add you to our young and fun team. We encourage you to enjoy your time here with us, but also take your time to relax, or explore the beautiful surroundings.

As a volunteer you will have access to free surf equipment, bikes and will be able to attend some surf and yoga classes (only when possible and not fully booked). Surf beaches, cafés/bars, shops, town center are all easily reachable, and supermarket & café just next door. We also offer you 50% staff discount in the restaurant & bar on the menu and all beverages/drinks. Our mission is to make your stay as pleasent for you as possible, and a life experience you would not want to have been without at the end of your stay!

Had to leave early for my own sanity. The owner’s daughter, Ana, treats the volunteers like rats, and discourages us from interacting with hostel guests and staff. She’s controlling and checks the staff house while you aren’t home for dishes and messes, and we were told we couldn’t leave the house if she saw any. She has kicked out many volunteers for minor things that upset her, leaving them in a foreign country with no place to stay. Pays everyone 5-7 days late and paid me nothing for 2.5 weeks of work. No working bikes. Come here if you want live in a tiny, hot, MOLDY, overcrowded shack

Sagres is and amazing place to stay if you love the nature and of course the beach, about my experience in sun stay was good I worked a lot taking pictures of the surf school and I really liked it, I learned a lot, also we become friends with the other volunteers and stuff l, they were amazing! But sometimes you feeling apart of the hostel don’t really feel like a family, I think that’ something is missing there is have more connection between the host and the volunteers to make us feel that we are not there just for a job and also for the experience of sharing like a family…

Mi experiencia con Sagres Sun Stay fue genial, te sientes como en casa.
También aprendí a surfear y podías hacer diferentes actividades en el hostal.
El horario es bastante cómodo y puedes hacer diferentes cosas en el día.
Si te encanta el surf o quieres aprender, este voluntariado es para ti :)

I was at Sagres Sun Stay Camp for almost 5 weeks and it was a great time. I was able to meet many new people and had a great time with the other volunteers. The work was pleasant and fair. The accommodation for the volunteers took some getting used to in the beginning, but I quickly felt comfortable. If you love surfing, you are definitely in good hands in Sagres - a small village with super surf spots. However, I recommend bringing your own surfboard

The hostel is big and clean. The task are ok ! I spent a really good stay in Sagres.
A lil' bit disappointed with the lack of familial vibe in the hostel, especially from the manager. It can be a mood killer sometimes. Also, the staff house is a bit disgusting. The surf material is rusty (I had to buy a leash by my own because they didn't want to give us.
But at the end : better than nothing, I don't regret at all <3
