A good time in Braga, collaborating with us...

United States


Nelson and Rafa were great! Rafa was always there to answer questions and help with anything you need. They are very flexible with the schedule. Braga is a clam city but very nice.

I had a good time at the hostel! Nelson and Rafa were very welcoming and always ready to help and making sure that I have everything I need. They give the hostel a family like atmosphere. The work itself is easy and Nelson is very flexible with the schedule so that you can explore the region. Note that during the winter it gets pretty quiet a the hostel, so I'd recommend to visit in the winter if you are looking for a more calm environment and very chill shifts. But if you are looking for the more “typical, very social hostel experience” then summer is better. I'm thankful for the experience

I had a wonderful experience at the hostel! The work was simple and the schedule was flexible so we had plenty of time to explore the area. Nelson and Rafa were very welcoming and they were more than happy to give recommendations, offer assistance and always checked in with us to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Naturally, this time of year has less travellers, so if you are looking for more movement in the hostel I would recommend trying to visit during the summer months. However, I still met some really great people and would definitely recommend this experience!

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

The hostel has been a little family for me during this month. I have felt welcome, happy and grateful for this experience. It was my first time volunteering and I totally recommend it. If you are looking for a place to feel accompanied, travel to the surroundings and meet new people, this is your place. I can only say thank you for everything to Nelson and Rafa and i'm sure that I'll be back soon ❤️
