Ljmonade Hostel & Suites

Hostel located in the centre of Cascais. It is a small and cosy place in a quiet and pretty village on the ocean side. In total we have 34 beds. There is a large yacht harbour and several small sand beaches in and around town. Cascais is easily reached from Lisbon by car or by frequent inexpensive commuter trains. It has the ruins of a castle, an art and sea museum, as well as parks and the charming cobbled streets of the historic centre. Cascais is surrounded by popular beaches, such as Guincho Beach to the west, and the lush Sintra mountains to the north. Some of its shoreline is cliff-y, attracting tourists for its seascapes and other natural sights such as the Boca do Inferno.

We are looking for a person to help mainly at the reception and looking after the guests. We offer bed in 6 beds dorm and breakfast for 3x8hr shifts a week. We organise lots of outdoors activities for your guests: hiking, cycling, horse back riding, surfing, paddle boarding and kitesurfing... so outdorsy people are welcome, we will need help with guided walks, cycling and just having fun with guests on the terrace. Also we provide events at our hostel and will need your help and adeas.

Wonderful place, wonderful owner, administration, employees. This place has a deep seat on human grounding, I found my self among people that is as human as I am.
True heart, commitment and clear agreements.
Highly recommended to all.




I spent amazing month with Lena & her lovely team at Ljomande and EcoLjmonade hostels in summer 2019! 💚🇵🇹
The work as a receptionist is chill, pleasant and time on your shift flies really quickly. Moreover, you can talk to an interesting travelers from the whole world, the staff is very multinational too.
You can learn about hostel management too. Both hostels offers you okay rooms and many extra facilities, like towels,umbrellas,extra food,balls etc.
Cascais is absolutely beautiful, sand&sun town, only the nightlife is a bit poor. Luckily Lisbon is just around the corner;) Come&check!🏄‍♂️




Lovely place with amazing people! I really enjoyed my experience here. There are 2 hostels: Ljmonade and EcoLjmonade. Both are close to train station, supermakets (+-15 min) and other facilities. The job is fair in a nice environment! I strongly recommend it :)




Julia and the rest of the staff treated me as a friend since the first day I arrived.

I came from a very bad volunteering experience and she did everything to made me feel comfortable and relax in my first days.

Also the job was fair, I learned a lot about how to manage a hostel and a guest house,I met many fantastic people, guests and volunteers and i'm looking forward to meet them again, soon or later.

Thanks a lot Julia for everything and see you soon!




Experiencia, sensacional! Recomendo a todos. Julia e todos os funcionários são muito atenciosos e divertidos. Nos ajudam sempre que precisamos. O hostel está numa região perfeita da maravilhosa cidade de Cascais. Próximo a museus, praias, bares e restaurantes. Quartos muito bons, ótimas camas e um bom chuveiro para relaxar depois de um dia de trabalho.
Tudo que foi combinado por email, antes de chegarmos, foi cumprido.
Obrigado Julia por nos receber, foi um prazer.
