This is my first experience with Worldpackers and I'm really enjoying it, I'm still here in Faro. I'm volunteering in my area which is decoration and artistic wall painting and that makes me very happy. Everyone is nice to me and helpful. I highly recommend it.

This is my first workaway experience and I sure have had a lot of fun! It was off season so the work load was pretty light. I had lots of free time hanging out or making some day trip to cities nearby. It's a great opportunity to meet other travelers and have a drink together by the beach;) Nuno is very flexible and always lays out the schedule of the day so everything was clear. Arni is such a wonderful cook and "DJ" and I will sure miss you and the yummy food!

My experience in Faro was amazing, the local people and the town are so much fun and I would highly recommend to stay there. The work schedule was easily manageable with 4 hours of work per day and 2 days off per week leaving plenty of time to explore all that Faro has to offer.

The owner was very friendly and picked us up from the airport. But the problem was that the room they gave us was not in a good condition! the mattress was in bad shape on the floor, no pillows and the place very neglected in general and no windows to the outside.
I think he should be more considerate of volunteers and offer a better option for sleeping (for couples). For that reason we decided to leave the place, he even offered us something better but only when we told him we were leaving, so why not offer a better option from the beginning if he can?
