It's a good first experience. Luis and Eunice are a lovely and welcoming couple. The hostel is a cozy house, although it lacks some of the hostel's characteristic features (such as common room, TV and other ways of entertainment); still, it's nice and quiet, not so far of the beach and also has a pretty good reminiscence of home.
Would recommend, specially as a first-time experience.

It was my first Worldpackers experience and it was ok. I made great friends with other volunteers and guests. The hostel is a bit far from the beach and the train station, and it doesn't have a hostel vibe, more like a B&B without breakfast. The manager was a bit difficult to reach but not impossible, and tried to help us when needed. No communication al all with the owners even though they stayed at the same place. I wouldn't recommend it but I'm still grateful of the opportunity.

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.
