My experience at WOT Peniche was absolutely amazing. I met incredible people, was free to visit the cities surrounding and had great experiences. The work was exactly as described and the shifts were really not long, which gave me a lot of free time to do whatever I wanted to do the rest of the day. I would recommend this host to anyone and really hope I'll be able to come back one day! Thanks again for everything xxx

The hostel is beautiful and the staff and volunteers were all fantastic and so easy to work with and hang out with. Hours and tasks were very fair and there was plenty of time to explore Peniche and to surf. The free surf lessons were brilliant too!

This was my first volunteering experience and i honestly couldn’t have asked for a better one. The crew felt like family and the hostel felt like home. Tasks were easy to pick up and do, work time usually took around 3-5 h depending on the shift. Accommodation was comfortable and everything i needed was provided.
A big thank you to Claudia, Leticia and all of our Peniche hostel family. Truly an experience i will never forget and have a lot of gratitude for.

My period in Aktion Peniche was great, I really enjoyed working with my team and getting to know the members of the staff. The tasks were pretty easy and the shifts were never too heavy. As a volunteer I had the chance to use the bikes and get surf lessons for free. On my days off I visited around a little bit and I also stayed in the hub in Lisbon for free. The manager was super cooperative and always tried to meet our needs. I totally recommend volunteering here, you will have a great time, meet lots of lovely people and discover beautiful Portugal!

I will never forget the experience. I love Peniche and all the people I met. Claudia and all the other volunteers and staff members were like a family for me. Working in the hostel was super chill and totally recommendable.
