Great place, great experience, great people. I'm glad my trip to Portugal ended with this experience. I got to know people from around the world and the beautiful Alvor.

This was my first experience at Worldpacker and it definitely worth it. I was lucky to be surrounded by amazing people who made the experience worthwhile. About the work, it's basically cleaning and organizing the rooms in the guest house, the work can be intense some days. About Cristina I must say that she is a person full of energy and very active, but the organization of the work schedule is not the best and this can be a little annoying. About the accommodation, I stayed in a house 18 min walk from the guest house, with all the necessary structure for cooking and washing clothes.

Cristina was a wonderful host, extremely accommodating and kind to the volunteers. Her family made us feel so welcome. The hours were great, and had the rest of the afternoon to do what we wanted.

The experience in the guest house was great, Alvor is a very beautiful and charming city, with pretty beaches. The hostess Cristina is a very friendly, kind and polite person, always in a good mood, full of energy and concerned with the well-being of the volunteers, the schedules and tasks are respected as agreed, and consist of cleaning the hostel rooms and some tasks of construction. it was also great sharing accommodation with volunteers Marcio, Fernada, Naiara and Luis. I recommend it to everyone.
