Germany

It was my first experience to work in a hostel and it was one of my best experience i ever had. The hostel is amazing, also very stylish with a amazing rooftop a and the location is excellent. The task are very fair and not to difficult. I had a lot of free time during the week. But one of the reason why the hostel is so amazing, is because of the people who work there! Everybody from the staff is so lovely! They give you the feeling that you are a part of a family. I had so much fun with them. It was very sad for me to leave.
Thank you for the great time See you soon!

Best experience out of 3 hostels I've done! Adriano always accommodates when any volunteer asks for days off and schedule preferences. But sometimes schedule needs to be double checked for error and common sense. Staff room (female 3-person dorm) in Sunset hostel can use a deep clean after each volunteer leaves. Most of the full time staff coworkers are amazing, some not so much and one is a creep to girls. Volunteers (8-10) became a family, thanks to Adriano for picking us, we all got along super well. Adriano is open minded, you have to communicate explicitly your needs, he will do his best!

It was my first Worldpackers experience and it was totally worth it. The staff and the other volunteers were amazing – it really felt like being part of a big family. Adriano (responsible for the volunteer program) really cared about you – especially that you don´t work overtime. The hostel itself is incredible – especially the rooftop. The only thing I have to criticize was my accommodation, but after some time you get used to it. Moreover, they provide different activities like tours, pubcrawls, parties etc – it never gets boring. l had an amazing time here and I will definitely come back!

It was an amazing experience! The hours worked were fair and the location of the hostel is excellent. It’s a great place to stay if you want to explore Lisbon and it’s surroundings. And also a good place to meet a lot of interesting people and learn about how a good hostel is managed. The staff was very friendly. Thank you very much for having me there! 😁
