If you like the 'hostel vibe', you'll have a really good time in Le Penguin, free breakfast and dinner every day, working not more than 25 hours a week so you have enough free time to explore Faro. It's a social hostel, so you can hang out with guests every night - just be prepared to play drinking games and share your 'never have I ever' stories every evening haha :D But if you want to escape from the hostel crowd sometimes - volunteers are sleeping in a twin room, so you can also have your privacy. The owner Diego is really nice and makes an effort to be a part of the staff group. Obrigada!

Great hostel with the best staff. It's easy to get to know Algarve from Faro by doing day trips on your days off. If you like going out it's the place for you. Would definitely recommend!

10/10 would recommend, especially to people who enjoy partying and meeting new people+going out most nights. The highlight of my experience was hanging out with the other volunteers and staff members. We all became very close and formed a great group! Props to Nadia and Natalia for making the place so special

I had the best time at Le Penguin! The hostel has a really friendly and fun atmosphere, you can easily connect with the guests and the locals. Everything's clean and the staff was amazing so it didn't feel like work at all. They made me feel part of the family from the beginning and we had lots of fun together! I would definitely recommend this volunteer experience to anyone who wants to have a great time and explore the beautiful Algarve region!
