First esperience with worldpackers... couldn't be better! Luzia is an amazing host, always ready to help. But in general the staff is so nice and friendly, it feels like a home! The work is not hard and in the days off Porto is a fantastic place to visit. I totally recommend this experience!
This has been my first time as volunteer, and it couldn't have been better! Luzia is truly the best, always welcoming and caring with me and the guests, and patient when she explained to me the tasks to do. I loved the atmosphere at the hostel: the staff is friendly, I've always felt like at home and it has been a pleasure to work with such nice people from all over the world. Totally recommended as experience, and Porto is great! I left the hostel with a lot of good memories, and I hope to meet them again some day :)
The Staff was definitly the best of the experience. Luzia was also really kind with me, she worked with us to show the job, had breakfast together, sometimes made lunch and always had a smile.
About the work, it was normally 8 hours (like a paid worker), the tasks are put out breakfast, cleaning rooms and bathrooms and making beds, and reception. It could be night shift sometimes. Didn't always have the same bed where to sleep
The location is great for visiting the nicest places in Porto!
I take with me a pleasant memory, Thanks for everything!
Until next time! :)
I have stayed for one month and feel it like home. Very helpful and caring staff and I loved the experience. Its the best. I recommend it to all. Luzia is a kind, loving and very hardworking person I have ever met. She is always the best. I met a lot of travelers and spent a great time at this hostel. I would love to get back to this place again. I wish the staff good luck and they are amazing. I just have no words to describe their kindness. Thanks a ton.
