Our hostel is on a typical Porto house from the XIX century that still maintains the original features and architectural details, such as the high ceilings and hardwood floors. Nevertheless, the house was renovated and has all the modern conforts. We have guests from all nationalities and learn a lot from each other. All travellers can share their experiences on our common rooms and backyard.
We are a small family-run hostel in the center of the beautiful city of Porto! Our hostel has three 8-bed dorms and one twin room. We also have several common places and a backyard where we barbecue on the Summer. There is also an arts studio as one of the owners is a visual artist. Our priority is that our guests feel at home and make the most of their stay.
Working at Canvas Hostel was a very good experience! The main task is to work at the reception and usually it's very chill. Sometimes I had to help cleaning but there was always another person to help me and the time schedule is very good. Louise is a great manager and friend that I was lucky to meet. I would recommend Canvas Hostel to everyone who wants to have a great experience in Porto! (:

I am incredibly lucky that my first volunteering experience has been in Canvas! Friendly atmosphere among the colleagues, they are very helpful. Obrigadissima, Lu, Derick, dona Ivete, Daiana! I will miss you!
I haven´t worked in hostels or hotels before, here I have learnt to deal with reception, to work in booking systems. Here you will work only half a day, so the other half you can explore the city and the suburbs, you have a plenty of free time! The hostel is extremely clean, quiet , exactly what I wanted. I will definitely return.

Sobre minha estadia nesse lugar, só tenho coisas boas para falar! Está sendo minha primeira experiência como voluntária em hostel, e acho que não tinha como ter encontrado outro lugar tão acolhedor como esse! Tudo é muito limpo e organizado, além do ambiente ser bem confortável! A Luise é uma pessoa muito querida e atenciosa, que além de ter me explicado sobre todo o funcionamento da rotina da recepção, também me ajuda sempre que surgem novas dúvidas. A equipe também é ótima, aprendi muito com a Ivete, Daiana e a Rocio! Só tenho a agradecer pelo dia a dia compartilhado com vocês por aqui :)
