WOT New Lisbon

The WOT New Lisbon Hostel is part of the WOTELS family. It is one of the biggest hostels in town with 162 beds. Close to the bohemian areas of Bairro Alto and Príncipe Real, you will stay walking distance from nice restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, gardens, museums... Everything essential, all that you need !

We are a young team of passionate travellers with different working experiences (hospitality, human resources, administration). We all have experience living abroad, whether in Portugal or elsewhere, and something we all have in common is being proud to call Lisbon home! We are always more than happy to recommend our favourite hidden spots in the area and around the city. Whatever you are assigned to do in the hostel, you are welcome to learn about the way we run things here, including managing reservations and helping guests.

This was my first volunteering experience and i couldn’t be happier with it. Everyone at the hostel was very welcoming and helpful. The shifts are not to hard and I still had a lot of free time to explore the city. The hostel is very well located and I met a lot of wonderful people from all over the world. I truly had the most amazing time there and I really recommend volunteering at this place!

Thanks a lot Corinne !
For your work, your kindness and for everything !
We wish you all the best for your next volunteering experiences !! ;)



This hostel is always going to have a special place in my heart! It’s the best place to make memories that you’ll never forget.
The work is pretty easy and enjoyable and the staff is very open, friendly and always ready to answer any questions or give a helping hand if needed.
The location is amazing, it’s very close to the best and cheapest bars in Lisbon but also far away enough that you can have a chill night in without being disturbed.

This was my first volunteering experience and it could not have been better! The hostel is perfectly located and the work is very straightforward, and since I was there during off-season, the shifts were mostly shorter than anticipated. The staff is so nice and really tries to make your experience the best one possible! You’ll have the opportunity to meet lots of people from all around the world, and also the other volunteers are amazing and just there to have a good time! I’ll definitely never forget this experience and I miss this place already 🫶🏼
