We are a family-run hostel based in the heart of beautiful Lagos, Portugal; just a 5-minute walk from the beach and a 1-minute walk from other local amenities. We are currently looking for enthusiastic and energetic people who love to socialize to join our team.

Absolutely amazing experience! I would highly recommend for anyone who’s joining the hostel world and wants to have fun. I felt like I had a Portuguese family here, the staff and mama were so welcoming. I will definitely be back and if you volunteer here so will you ;)

This was my second time volunteering at the rising cock hostel. I fell inlove with everything about it the first month and had to come back. It’s seriously such a fun job with the most amazing staff ever. I created a family not only with them but with all the locals which is one of the main reasons I started volunteering. It was so hard to leave and I’ll definitely be back next summer to work again. If you’re thinking about applying.. DO IT. You won’t wanna miss out on this opportunity!

If you’re thinking about volunteering here I highly recommend it! The staff and mama are so welcoming and really make you feel like a family. The hostel is such a fun atmosphere to be around and the staff house is one of the best set ups I’ve seen for workers! Lagos is a hidden gem, I loved this experience so much I’m coming back for a second month! Buckle up for some of the most fun you’ll ever have at a hostel 🐓❤️
