Would definitely recommend at least beginners of Portuguese if you come! Carcavelos is a beautiful place with a great location! I made heaps of friends while I was here. There are actually two hostels and the host was kind enough to let me work at both :)

Infelizmente não consegui comparecer, tive um problema sério de saúde e não consegui fazer a viagem. Acabei esquecendo de avisar e causando um possível mal entendido nos anfitriões.

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...
