I had a great time at the hostel! It was my first experience volunteering in a hostel with Worldpackers and I couldn't have asked for a better one. Jennifer and the staff make you feel very welcome and at home! The working hours are well respected and the work isn't hard. You get to meet amazing people from all over the world and make lifelong friends ;) During my stay, I had a lot of free time to explore Faro and other parts of Portugal. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone, thank you for everything! <3

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I had such a nice time staying at the hostel. Everybody was super welcoming, so, I felt really comfortable during my entire stay. Faro is a nice city to stay since it's so small that you kinda get to know the whole city after some time and feel home. The hostel itself also is a great place to meet many amazing people be it guests, volunteers or staff members. I can say that I had an lovely time with everyone I got to know there. Thank you for everything!! I wouldn't change a thing :)

This was my first Worldpackers experience and it was great! All the staff and Jennifer were super welcoming and helped me at any time I needed. The tasks were well communicated and really not that hard. I was able to explore other parts of Portugal on my days off which was really nice! The other volunteers were super nice and I've made lifelong friends through this experience. Would recommend to anyone!
