This was my first worldpacker experience and i couldn't wish for a better one. The hostel is amazing, so are Monica and Tiago. They are truely wonderfull people . i felt at home from the first day. The work is fair and clear. Your questions will always be answered and they give a helping hand where needed. The free surf you have as a volunteer is really great, if you like surfing and good vibes i would highly recommend this place!! ❤

I had an amazing time at this hostel. The people working there and the other volunteers really made everything feel homey. The atmosphere created in the hostel truly made me feel welcomed and like I belong. If I could I would volunteer here again.

I had a great stay at the hostel! We were given a schedule for our shifts, the managers (Tiago + Monica) respected all volunteers, listened to our needs + feedback, + made for a pleasant working environment. The location is city centre in Cascais, easy to go by transit to go see other sites, or day trips. I shared a room with other volunteers, we were responsible for our own housekeeping. My stay was in the low season, it can be quiet, as the surf isn't great and there is no yoga. The hostel can also be cold in winter, there's no heating. I would recommend this experience to others!

I absolutely loved my time at the hostel and definitely would have stayed there a lot longer if I could! I spent five weeks there and only left the hostel a handful of times because I really enjoyed being there with everyone and the vibe so much! When I first arrived there were a few issues and when brought to their attention they made progress to fix the issues right away which was great! I felt super welcomed and comfortable right away and not only felt super supported by Monica and Tiago but also had many great laughs with them also. I will definitely be back and can't bloody wait!! 🥰🤩💃🏼

I came to the hostel without any expectation, but left with much more than I would have ever thought. I left with a new family, friends, experiences, development and knowledge. Work is pretty flexible, you are capacitated at the start and slowly let on your own. Monica and Tiago were always there to help with anything that I needed relating work or just tips about the area. I got to meet great guests and really got close to the other volunteers, which were always there to help with anything. Would definitely recommend working here and I am so looking forward to visiting the hostel
