I spent 1 month at Casa D'Alagoa and since the first week I felt like I was home. It's definetly a very sociable place "where you treat your friends like family". We had barbecue parties every Saturday, and sat together for dinner with guests everyday.

The cleaning work is hard, but fair, and since the vibe (of the staff and the other volunteers) is so good, you end up having fun while working. The night shift is easy to learn and usually calm.

This was a life-changing experience and I am totally grateful to everybody for the amazing time I lived there. I will miss you very much! <3

My time in Faro exceeded all my expectations! As a first time volunteer I couldn’t have picked a better hostel, it’s as close to a home away from home as you can get. The work is regimented but with such a good team and management, as I was lucky to have, it barely felt like work. I felt so looked after here and I will miss you all terribly!

So i was let go by this hostel. Not going to write a story about, but the issue was not just mine but the management too.hostel is really great though especially for the guests.Atmosphere is great,meeting ppl great, barbecues so awesome. What you get for your work is better than most places. Only bad thing was organization and communication with the current volunteer manager. Zero training, very poor communication, and tries to resolve issues with big group text messages, never face to face, which makes me wonder what he'd tell the owners about us. Disappointed it ended so unprofessionally.
