I had a very good experience at Carcavelos Surf Hostel. I was very well received by the other volunteers and team, the work is easy and in my spare time I could surf and play poker with French, German and Portuguese friends.
It was a good time, I recommend this experience.

Fue una excelente experiencia, pudimos mejorar nuestro inglés, conocer muchas personas de todo el mundo, tienes la playa muy cerca, puedes surfear y pasear. las tareas de las casas son tranquilas, Joana es flexible con los horarios. Solo que el cuarto de los voluntarios es demasiado pequeño.

A experiência foi como esperado! Estava em busca de me desconectar um pouco de Lisboa, e o local é bastante agradável, possui natureza, piscina limpa, um bom espaço ao ar livre e também muito próximo à praia e também é fácil para se deslocar pra Lisboa, a estação de comboio de Carcavelos fica a 5minutos. A região é bastante segura, os horários de trabalho também são bem flexíveis e podem ser adaptados. A gerência e os voluntários são bastante amigáveis, me senti em casa.
