The Experience

Saudade Guest House stay in the most beautiful part of the city so close to cathedral and Alfama neighborhood. We have a different concept because we created an artist house with the programe of volunteer. In the two years that we have received volunteers we allow them to leave somo of their skins in the house like a exposition of photograph or paint wall in the rooms - like a Live Museum.

Essa foi minha primeira vez no Worldpackers e minha primeira grande viagem. Não poderia ter sido melhor. Liliana é uma ótima anfitriã. Sempre esteve disponível para ensinar e ajudar no que precisava. O Saudade é muito legal, um clima bem familiar e muito bem localizado.
As tarefas são tranquilas de fazer. Conheci pessoas de todas partes, falei vários idiomas. Foi uma experiência maravilhosa!
Sinto que lá é como um refúgio, e as pessoas que conheci e dividi esse tempo como uma família. Vale muito a pena!

Estuve como voluntaria durante aproximadamente 10 días en el Guest House, y realmente fue una gran experiencia! Si bien no conecté demasiado con la ciudad, sí conocí mucha gente muy copada y de distintas partes del mundo, que hicieron que mi estadía fuese mejor. La convivencia con los otros voluntarios fue genial, nunca tuvimos ningún problema, y siempre nos ayudamos entre todos. Lila es amigable, divertida y se puede hablar fácilmente con ella de cualquier cosa. Hubo algunos problemas de organización algunos días, debido a inconvenientes de booking, pero pudimos resolverlos.
Muito obrigada!

Me senti como en mi casa, es mágico Lisboa y el guest house. Ademas de trabajar, conocí bastante la cultura Portuguesa y los alrededores de la ciudad. He quedado con muchas Saudades de mi experiencia vivida allí. Lila nos vemos pronto!

My stay there was an amazing life experience. The house is a unique place, located in the true heart of Libon. Lived some magic moments and made friends for life at Saudade Guest House. Is for sure a place that anything can happen.

My stay in Saudade Guest House was a great experience since I arrived I learn so many things about the place and the owner, Lila is a terrific host and her son Alex is lovely. I did different activities during my stay such as paint, front desk, and cleaning. The house is lovely and well located, just next to the Cathedral.
