The Experience

We are looking for detail-orientated people to clean our airbnb accommodations in Cacilhas (we have two), and to assist with cleaning our guest rooms in Lisbon (provide assistance to our full time cleaning staff). The job is easy and you get to stay in the traditional, beautiful, riverside town of Cacilhas, just minutes walking from many popular restaurants and bars and only 7 minutes by ferry to downtown Lisbon.

The volunteers did my experience a wonderful to me. I learned many things, and Lisbon is a incredible place, very romantic with many things to do. The food is really cheap and you can survive with a 6,00€ per day, that’s very nice. The host it’s some a disorganized, but if you are prepare this’s doesn’t a matter.

Foi algo surrpeendente! Uma experiência marcante com aprendizagem para o resto da vida.No tocante ao Hostel, as atividades foram super fáceis com as folgas garantidas sem nenhum problema. Conheci e convevi com pessoas já acostumadas a fazerem viagens internacionais, o que me motivou bastante a fazer outras viagens pelo mundo. Quanto a Alex, ela é uma pessoa super agradável e muito gente boa para com todos, não é diferente o Tiago. Espero poder voltar em outra ocasião e aqui gostaria de registrar os meus mais puros e sinceros agradecimentos a todos pelo apoio, desde antes de vir até agora.

It was my first worldpackers experience, despite it was not my first volunteer experience, and I can say it was great. \nAlex and Tiago they are friendly, fun and pratical. \nThe tasks and hours was easy and simple, even not having interaction with people, once it was cleaning, but it gave me time to enjoy and do a lot of other things on my extra time. \nMy roommates, THEY ARE THE BESTS. I think we became friends. Respect and good vibes made very easy to share the room with them. I\'ll miss that. I do recommend.

Hi Cintia,
Actually part of your job was cleaning. In addition to everything I had many detailed and long whatsapp conversations with you about where you would be living, who you would be living with and what you would be doing. No worries.... everyone else who volunteers with us has a great time and nothing but positive experiences to share!! All the best.
