My experience on the Hostel 2300 was just amazing!! Sonia, Luis and Renato was very welcoming to me and help me to get very used to the tasks and feel comfortable to be around.

The daily routine will depends on the days, there is some days there is pretty easy but others are busy, but it’s never long hours and we always have someone else to work with.

Tomar is a very cute little town, and I loved to stay in. From here is easy to get to others cities like Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra and Caldas da Rainha, there is trains and buses everyday.

Highly recommend

It was my first experience with Worldpackers and I would choose Hostel 2300 Thomar again and again. Sónia is a fantastic person, as all the members of the staff that I met there.
Thomar is a wonderful city, especially if you love being in a place surrounded by nature and history.
I had really a great time working at the hostel, having fun and hanging out with the staff.
It was not just a volunteer experience, it was a personal growth and I found a family here. I will definitely come back again as soon as possible.

Thank you Sónia, Renato, Luis, Raiza and Alberto for having been my family. ❤

Working in this hostel was an incredible experience. The hostel is very cozy and beautiful. Sonia, Raiza and Renato were extremely kind to me, they helped me solve every question and problem I had, they introduced me to their friends and they even celebrated my birthday, that made me really happy! The hostel is located in the best part of Tomar, with beautiful streets and amazing restaurants just a few minutes from the hostel. Thank you very much for the opportunity and for the experience. I will definitely be back!

I couldn't be happier with my experience at Hostel 2300 Thomar. The people working there are stars - a special thank you to Sónia, who has created an amazing hostel, and to Joana and Isabela, who were great colleagues. I felt welcome from the beginning and really enjoyed the work. Tomar is a special place and I'll definitely be back one day soon. Obrigada!
