My first worldpackers experience was amazing! Lucia and Rafael were wonderful hosts, very friendly and easy going. The work was easy and the Portuguese lunch every day was a highlight of my trip! I loved the relaxed, small town vibe and there were so many beautiful places to explore. Thanks so much! Would definitely recommend :)

Definitely one of the best experiences ever! First time working at a hostel and am so happy to be apart of the Meraki family! Lúcia and Rafael are both wonderful hosts, tasks were easy enough and the beaches are so so beautiful!

Working at Meraki hostel was great with very friendly hosts. It’s in a beautiful area with beautiful beaches. Very chill, easy going place:)




This experience in the apples BBC hostel it was great ,though in praia das Maças in the time of the year that I've been there it was low season so there aren't too many people, anyway it was an amazing experience because it is close to sintra and Lisbon so I used to visit those awesome place besides the ocean and the incelredible natural place.
I learning a lot about Portuguese culture, the place it is beutiful and the meal in the restaurant of the father of Luçia it is amazing with typical dishes.
I'm really thankful with Luçia her brother and her father too.




It was my first experience in worldpackers and couldn' t be better. I had luck in to choose a lovely place with a lovely host. Lucia is very kind and friendly. I had a great time there and really hope to see her again. I strongly recommend it!
