Experiência incrível! Foi sensacional estar lá, fazer as amizades que fiz..A equipe é acolhedora, o hostel é adorável, super bem localizado, e as horas de trabalho são muito justas! Sobra tempo para conhecer e passear por Lisboa! Amei! Quero voltar!

The staff and volunteers are not diverse at all, I was the only one that didn’t speak Portuguese which for me, someone that went there looking for an experience, had me feeling left out sometimes.\nThe shifts where great and simple. \nThe hostle is pretty cosy, I love the TV room and the outside area you really feel at home there.

All staff are very welcoming and helpful! Breakfast shift can get pretty busy but the night shift is super chill!

Do not make the same mistake as I did... STAY LONGER. Back to Lisbon hostel is in a perfect location, quiet area but close to anything you would want to do in terms of tourism or late night partying. The staff are friendly and they become like family very very fast. The hours you work are very fair
