The time at the hostel was really great. The working tasks were very easy and we had a lot of free time. The team from Hostellicous is very friendly and helpful. The location is also very great, you are not far away from the harbour, bars and clubs. We met a lot of people and had a lot of fun. We highly recommend working at their hostel, it was an amazing time and we will never forget it! ☺️

The time at the hostel was great! We felt very welcome and the work was also nice. We had to clean the rooms and everything we had to do was discussed with us in advance. We had so much fun with all the other volunteers and met many new people. Faro is beautiful but there are not soo much things to explore. If you want to see the beach, you have to go by Bus or Ferry but it's quick and cheap and the beach is totally worth to see it.

An incredible experience. We had a great experience at the hostel and Casa D'Alagoa. We really enjoyed the work, the hours and the days off which were the same for me and my travel companion. The hostel is friendly, very functional and allows you to meet people. The month of October is ideal to go to the south of Portugal. The landscapes are beautiful, the people are lovely, we had great meetings. We are going back to France with a lot of memories and we can't wait to go back to the Algarve!

I had a great experience volunteering! People were very friendly though it did take a little longer for me to settle in than at the their other hostel which does have a lot more homely feel. I felt like I had to be quite proactive with the clarity of task/timetable communication. All the facilities inside the hostel were easy to use and well equipped, and a great location.
