Ótima experiencia! Hostel muito confortável e staff muito gente boa, principalemente o Gabriel que foi o encarregado de cuidar das minhas tarefas! Trabalho bem tranquilo, fizemos vários serviços diferentes, mas todos bem simples e não passava de 4 horas por dia. Vale muito a pena, hostel perto da estação de metro e perto da praia, que tem um por do sol muito bonito! Gostaria de voltar posteriormente em alta temporada!

Todo fue genial! Los chicos del staff, Joao, el ambiente del hostel, te hacen sentir como en casa. El trabajo es simple y está bien organizado y distribuido. Hay espacio para el diálogo, las instalaciones son cómodas, y el desayuno incluido también es bueno.
Gracias por el tiempo compartido, me llevo un excelente recuerdo!

My experience at Oportocean was pretty fun. The staff is awesome and I really felt at home. Everyone is treated in the same way (staff+guests) so we usually go out together at night or to the beach. I have to say that some tasks given weren't the ones said on the website what pissed me off a little bit but nothing that a good conversation can't change things. I learned a lot during the weeks I stayed there and I hope to be back in Portugal soon so I can see my Oportocean friends again.
Saudades, Porto! Beijinhos.

Mi primera y mejor experiencia, me llevo muy buenos amigos y me sentí como en mi casa. Joao, Vania unos genios!! He practicado un poco el surf y he conocido mucho tanto Porto como los alrededores. Me llevo los mejores recuerdos y sin duda volveré!

This modern, loving hostel is definitely somewhere you should volunteer at. The staff will become your family and the work is very reasonable. Future improvements to the hostel (social etc) are already in the pipeline and will only increase the hostels already high standard.

In short, highly recommend it.
