Learning & Fun


I just can say that I had a great time while I was there . I was the chef and it was a pleasure for me to cook for the staff and guests alike . I did feel that I was cooking for family . I learned a lot and I had tons of fun ( speacially the days of te bbq ).

The people was lovely and I know I love the whole team dearly. I was actually sad the day I went away . I can’t wait to go back for another ( and longer ) season .

Special thanks to Rocky , Diogo , Nuno and Alexandra ( and of course all the staff and volunteers ) for making this experience a great one

I'm very happy i came to this hostel. It is a great house with good structure where we can hangout with guests and staff, cook, watch movies, make barbecue every saturday and enjoy the algarve region travelling around cheap! The atmosphere of the hostel is like a house and you will feel like you have a family here :)
Rokas and Alexandra will help you explaining the activities and all you need is to show interest and have initiative to have a great volunteer experience here.

I really loved the place, the Staff, The kitchen, so worth it. I already miss everything especially the other volunteers, (romy, isa, victor) and rocky with his personality. I want to thank everyone for the opportunity!!

It was such a great experience,that I stayed and was hired.
While volunteering I started doing cleaning shifts and soon doing night shifts, both fare work and some time to enjoy the day.
We usually had dinners and is a great moment to feel and participate in the family vibe,between workers and guests.
Had just 1 or 2 sad moments,noticed stresses about little things,that could be avoided,despite were so little that didn't affect my experience at all.
Overall I definitely recommend the place and Faro to anyone willing to come!
PS:the bikes need some maintenance,or enjoy with +adventure =}
