I was really happy for living my first volunteering experience at Aktion Hostel, actually I so loved the place Peniche, the location, the people that I decided to stay longer. The hostel is in a strategic position, close to restaurants, stores.., it has huge, welcoming and well-equipped commun spaces, the work shifts are well managed and the load is fair. You can also learn surfing and practice with the commun surfboards! So if you want to volunteer at just two steps away from the ocean this is the right place !

I've had an amazing time at Aktion! The hostel is fun, vibrant and full of activities. The work is fair and the hours are flexible. Marcelo was a great host, he's always been nice and very respectful to me and the others volunteers. It's a great spot to meet new people, both travelers and locals. Also great to practice your surf, no matter your level of experience! Overall I really recommend being a part of Aktion hostel. Thank you Marcelo and the hostel staff for everything!

I decided to come in Péniche to learn surf, and it's what I did. I really recommand this place and experience, you will have the time to surf . Because we are volounteers we can't all the time have spot in the surf class, but you can take a board at the surf school.
The tasks as volounteer are correct. You will do or the breakfast or the beds. It's a nice shoulder workout :)
The staff is really kind, the hostel is huge and convivial ! I really recommand ! Péniche is a really calm and a peace place !! I loved it

Everyone @Hostel AKTION is great. They gave me a warm welcome even though i was there late the 1st day. You get free surf lessons and a bike for you to use whenever you want. They really try to get to know you so its not all 100% work. Thanks to Maria, Claudia, Deb., Marcel, Victor, and Johanna (the other volunteer). You were AMAZING!!!!
