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!!!!
