Le Penguin Hostel

We have an amazing hostel in Faro and want you to be part of our team. We need enthusiastic and social people to help us. This is an amazing opportunity to spend some time in the sunny Algarve region and to meet people from different cultures while helping us to run a friendly and fun hostel. So, hard-working, enthusiastic and creative people: you can stop looking for another host, pack your stuff and come to Faro!

We offer great conditions for volunteers to work and also to enjoy their time with us. The working hours are fair and in exchange we offer of course accomodation, free food, discounts on drinks not only in our hostel and plenty of other opportunities and activities

My experience in Le Penguin Hostel has been 5 stars. I have no complaints at all. Adam is a great guy and always open to help you in anything.
The team are just super nice. most of them between 18 and 24 years old. Super nice and easy going people.
This is a place to relax, near to the beach (by bus), give you the opportunity to meet a lot of new people. The job is easy to do. They explain you everything and they are always open to assist.
For me, it was pretty nice experience, pretty nice people, you just can feel at home..
I could go to Porto and Lisbon during my days off and other cities.

I had a great time in Le penguin, the hostel is comfortable and clean. The tasks are simple and clearly explained. Shifts and working hours are respected. Adam and the rest of the staff are always willing to help us. I would totally recomend this place to volunteer. Thank you Le penguin!

I stood at Le Penguin Hostel for 2 month and I really had a good time at there! Met some really amazing people, enjoyed the great location and shared great moments with the staff.
The tasks to do are pretty simple, Adam was super nice and flexible about my availability (because I’m also studying), so we arranged the schedule in order to make it possible for everyone. I got my own private bedroom with a big window, some foods were included and Adam cooked delicious dishes for us, which was really cool from him and I’m super grateful.
Thank you Adam and staff for all your help and kindness! 🤗

Fue mi primer experiencia como voluntaria y la pasé súper bien, vine directamente desde Argentina y Adam me vino a buscar a la estación. Había otras dos voluntarias argentinas (Lara y Jime) que me hicieron sentir como en casa. Me dieron habitación privada que es súper cómoda y el hostel tiene un patio hermoso para quedarse ahí leyendo o charlando con los huéspedes y el resto de los voluntarios.

Quando cheguei fui muito bem recepcionado pelo Adam, que hoje é uma das grandes amizades que fiz em Portugal. Fiquei tão a vontade que a experiência que era pra ser de três semanas foi de quatro meses!
O trabalho não é pesado, a equipe decide em conjunto e o clima entre o staff é de muita amizade e cumplicidade. Desse modo, a equipe acaba se tornando a alma do lugar e o ambiente se torna incrível.
Eu entrei de coração aberto e foi intenso e muito recompensador, uma das melhores épocas da minha vida. Obrigado Adam e todos que ajudam a manter esse sonho de hostel vivo. Com certeza voltarei!
