It really is an experience that EVERYONE needs to have in life, volunteering opens the mind and heart to the world and new situations and not only that but it also opens up social and professional opportunities. Here at the hostel you experience everything up close, you have responsibility, commitment and organization. But you also make true and sincere friendships, get into the local culture and have contact with natives from other countries so you are kind of forced to learn English and Spanish which helps a lot in your learning. Thank you so much hostlicious for the opportunity ;)

This was my first volunteering experience and it was a lot of fun. The Hostel is modern, clean and cozy. Work hours were respected and is a perfect opportunity if you are working remotely. Faro is a cute town, but there isn't much to do. So if you are planning on exploring do note that you have to commute quite a bit. Other than that it was a great experience !!!

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.
