My experience at Oceanporto was so nice, there I gave a hand in the breakfast and learned how to works to iron bed sheets, the shift's time always was respected and organized for Nazare, a dear lady responsible for volunteer's tasks. My bed was in a hut like a private room even in a shared room, I really appreciated it. Every single day I had opportunity to practice english and sometimes spanish, it's also was a good point to me. The hostel is in a good localization, in a lovely neighboor where there are so many parks, close to metro and beach. Definitely it's a great spot, I recomend :)

To do worldpackers in this place was a incredible experience. It was my second home, the people were friendly. I learned and changed experiences with the other volunteers. I liked so much and recommended this place for other people. Thank you so much!

Rose is spectacular. If you look for a great worker and a good vibe she´s got it. Wish you a great trip my friend!



My frist volunteering experience! I felt very welcome! Job is not difficult, just a bit monotone but If you have good company of other volunteers you can always make it more fun with some conversation and music! You get to know and meet many new people, there is always something going on in the hostel! Very pleasent environment! Don't hesitate to aply 🥰🥰

We had a really good experience with John!! Very friendly and open minded person, when it comes to the tasks he was very ponctual and helpful. Recommended.



The welcoming was at its lowest point. On this profile's page they offer the pick up but no one came to pick me up when I arrived at night. The work at the hostel was easy and relaxing even though it was not always easy to understand and organize tasks effectively due to lack of communication between both the hosts and to the volunteers. Some hosts were more open to communication and with them it was easier to decide the shift hours. I would recommend it to meet international travelers:) (When I left none of the hots were there, nor replied to my messages when I left).
