The Experience

We need help with reception and cleaning tasks. The traveller will be asked to help 5 hours a day, with 2 free days. The shifts will be scheduled mainly on the weekends (9am-5pm) or on the 4pm-9pm shift during the week, on the total of 25 hours/week. We also accept if volunteers wish to organize their own activities as long as they fit on the hostel spirit. We have a very relaxed, zen and warm environment and are not a party hostel.

About the host

Our hostel is on a typical Porto house from the XIX century that still maintains the original features and architectural details, such as the high ceilings and hardwood floors. Nevertheless, the house was renovated and has all the modern conforts. We have guests from all nationalities and learn a lot from each other. All travellers can share their experiences on our common rooms and backyard.
