Learning & Fun


This was my very first Worldpacker experience and I could not have loved it more ! The staff here are absolutely WONDERFUL (very helpful and collaborative!), the work is minimal and the hostel is just steps from the city centre. You get so much for so little of your time, while still getting a feel for the hospitality sector, so if you're a first-time Worldpacker or simply looking for a relaxing environment to enjoy the beautiful city of Lisbon, The LOFT is the perfect place to fall in love with Portugual!

Amei muito minha experiência no The Loft! Como o trabalho é super tranquilo e o Hostel é bem organizado, você vai ter tempo de sobra pra interagir com os hóspedes e conhecer a cidade. A Lorena, gerente do Hostel, também foi uma surpresa muito boa, já que ela faz de tudo pra que os voluntários estejam bem treinados, bem alimentados e que se divirtam! Recomendo muito a experiência, tanto para novatos quanto para voluntários mais experientes.
