The Experience

Help around in the daily tasks of the Hostel operation while meeting new friends and places. Work as TEAM, as part of our "family", where everybody works and help each other, and everybody has fun too. General tasks include reception, check-ins, check-outs, reservations management, cleaning, house-keeping and a bit of everything that might come up. If you have any special skill or hobby ( painting, music, etc) you can also practice it here.

Learning & Fun


Los compañeros de trabajos de recepción son agradables y enseñan las tareas a realizar. El dueño habla varios lenguajes y es más que abierto a la hora de charlar, enseñar y divertirse.
La locación del Hostel es súper! Lisboa no me pareció tan cara y hay variedad de actividades a realizar.
El Hostel es si, debería trabajar en la limpieza y refacción de algunas aéreas, pero eso creo depende del gusto de cada viajero. Algunos detalles edilicios harían de la experiencia algo mejor.
Fíjate bien con quien tratas dentro del Hostel, hay ciertos empleados que no son amistosos.

It was terrible

A beautiful experience, I had the best time in this Hostel thanks to the team and the owner, everybody was very nice since the first day; if you want to learn and have time to enjoy the city by yourself, this is a good option.

The people is really nice, but the place is not for everyone, if you like the freedom to have a wide range of choice then do it, but if you are in the "clear structure" side of the people then don't. "Clarity" is not a characteristic of Locals, you have to figure out almost everything. It's definitely an adventure and you are going to have a lot of anecdotes for the future, is up to you to decide.
