Minha experiência na Casa d'Alagoa foi a primeira do tipo e achei incrível. As tarefas se basearam em cuidar da limpeza e arrumação do hostel e cozinhar algumas vezes. O ambiente do hostel faz com que você se sinta em casa! E ter tantos voluntários ajuda a tornar a experiência melhor. Tanto o Nuno, quanto o Diogo e o resto do staff foram receptivos e compreensivos. Apenas no final, quando mudaram o esquema do jantar, o clima mudou completamente. Já não compartilhávamos a mesa com os guests e não tinha mais um sentimento de união do grupo, além de que faltava opções para cozinhar.

Mi experiencia en Casa d'Alagoa ha sido muy buena! El trabajo es sencillo pero creo que el horario podría ser más flexible y mejor organizado. Diogo y Nuño son comprensibles y ayudan en todo. El equipo ha sido maravilloso, a pesar de un voluntario que llegó al final de mi estancia y se comportó de una manera que yo considero inadmisible e injusta, pero hay que aceptar ese tipo de cosas como vienen y con posibilidad!! Siempre habrá un hueco en mi corazón para Casa d'Alagoa :)

The volunteers and host Nuno were amazing! I had such a great time here, lots of fun and things to do. However, halfway through my stay here, the volunteers went from having lovely meals to being given pasta and red sauce and told to fend for ourselves due to there not being high enough turnout for guest meals. I understand that what we were getting initially was a bit extravagant but what was given after was subpar. Most volunteers opted to start eating out instead. Secondly there was one paid staff member who constantly condescended the volunteers and referred to us as " Worldpackers bums".

Minha experiência foi incrível graças as pessoas maravilhosas que me rodearam tanto durante o trabalho (pesado) quanto durante as festas (insanas)! Gente de todo o canto do mundo que deixou sua marca durante esses quase 2 meses no hostel! Amigos e histórias inesquecíveis! Obrigada Casa d'Alagoa :) principalmente Nuno, Diogo, Elio, Alessandro, Raquel, Lina e Alexandra!
And the amazing volunteers: Mad, Gi, Kasia, Caitlyn and Carly!!!
Continuarei visitando semanalmente haahha
