Carc is a nice city very close to lisbon and it's also close to some amazing beaches ,didn't liked a lot the hostel , cause it was quietly lefted to him self , and it have an amazing garden , but is completly overlooked by the owners , for the rest it was a great exp were i met a lot of nice people and i spent very good days
It was my first worldpackers and I had such a great experience. The hostel is cleaned because of the lovely cleaner working there. I have met anothers volunteers who I was working with, we were like a family and we helped each others. The owners didn't help us propery, it was the bad point. I think the hostel needs moré comunication between volunteers and managers.
I recommend this hostel because of the good experience I have had and the great atmosphere we could enjoy thanks to the rest of volunteers and guests.
I had a nice experience in Help Yourself Hostel Country, I met great people there and the places around are very beautiful. As Carcavelos is on the Lisbon-Cascais train line, it's easy to travel around (though you have to walk 25 min to get to the train station).
The hostel is ok, it's a bit old and the only common places are a common kitchen and a small garden. It's also quite far from everything; you have to walk 30min to get to the beach! The biggest problem is, I would say, the management: the volunteers do everything and the manager, Ana, is never around...
It was my first workaway experience and I really had a good time there :)
I could meet a lot of people and all the volunteers were like a family.
About the hostel, it needs more organisation because sometimes the volunteers have to deal with problems that we shouldn't.
I recommend this place to have a great time surrounded by amazing people!
I got to meet nice people there and it is a good option for traveling around Lisbon and the beaches nearby. I stayed in a smaller hostel, calm ambiance, which was ok to me. The tasks were easy. But overall the work flow is very disorganised, the manager is not really present, and that caused me some stress
