The hostel was one of my top volunteering experiences! I've had the best time and made so many friends around the world which I'll forever be grateful for :) The atmosphere in the hostel is great and it attracts really cool people. Monica and Tiago are very good managers and the work was reasonable so all in all I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

I had an amazing time volunteering at the hostel. It the best place to stay, if you want to explore Portugal, meet a lot of International travelers and learn surfing. Staff and all volunteers are very lovely and friendly, always ready to help you. Hostel is cozy and has a good location, close to the centre of Cascais. The tasks weren't difficult, I was working at the bar, making and serving drinks and food. I highly recommend the hostel to everybody who wants to volunteer in Portugal!

I recently had the pleasure of participating in the volunteering program at the hostel, and it was an absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. The hostel's vibrant atmosphere and absolutely lovely staff made me feel right at home from the moment I arrived. Mónica and Tiago set clear expectations from the beginning and always have time to listen and address any concerns. The work itself was fun and varied, allowing me to learn new skills especially behind the bar and front desk . The staff dorm was clean and comfortable.

This place invites you to be your true being in a respectful and kind way, it feels like a magnet for wonderful people. Everything was the way we agreed and as it was winter the shifts were pretty calm but this gave me the opportunity to connect deeply with the team and some guests. The team room was cozy and all of the common areas were perfectly clean all the time. The opportunity of learning how to surf was awesome and the beach is close by, even tho it's not necessarily to go out for feeling that your in a paradise. So much love in such a cute house ❤️
