The Experience

My name is Nelson, and I am responsible for a hostel in the city of Braga. Our hostel is a place with tradition and many stories, which we want to share with all the people who are passing through here. At leisure I promise to show the region, because we have the advantage of being near the beach (30 minutes by bus) and the mountain (40 minutes by bus), the richness of our gastronomy and enology...

What I want to ask Magdalena is if she saw anything or any animal like that? Because neither we nor she saw anything.
What we saw was a filthy room. The cleanliness in this room and bathroom was zero. Rafa and I went to clean it, because it was worse than dirty and the smell was not pleasant.
When we comment we have to be careful, because we could be doing an injustice...




The hostel is a great place to stay. Nelson and Rafa are very welcoming people and i felt at home after the first few days. The work was easy to learn and the shifts were chill most of the time too. But you should know, that some of the promised things on the profile are not true. There were no discounts for restaurants, bars or parties and also no surfing or language lessons. So if you're looking for the typical portugal surf experience you should volunteer at another place. Nevertheless, i had a great time at the hostel and would recommend it to everyone.

My first Worldpackers experience and it was absolutely amazing! I met so many people from all over the world, the work was not difficult and atmosphere in hostel was really nice. I had plenty of time to do other things after work. Nelson is an amazing person, he made me feel so welcome immediately after I arrived and was always there to communicate and help. I spent month and a half at hostel and I would have stayed longer if I could! Overall, I recommend this place to everyone who is looking for new emotions and new experiences because you will definitely get them!!!

Amazing for a first volunteer experience; the hostel is small so the work is very manageable and it's a great pace to meet new people. The kitchen also serves as the common area so it was easy to get to know guests. The other volunteers were the best and made me feel so included from the start. Nelson was a great host and would always pick up the phone when I had any questions about the work and he made it a very chill working environment. Will really miss everyone at the hostel and will have to return! :)

I loved my month at the hostel! This was my first time volunteering and I would really recommend it. The work itself was easy to learn and quite light. Nelson and Rafa made me feel welcome and were always available to answer any questions. I would like to thank them, the other volunteers and guests at the hostel for making such a memorable experience. Truly a home away from home <3
