This was my first experience as a volunteer and I loved it! Tomar is a very nice and cute city. The tasks were easy and fair, you have a lot of free time once you're done. The hostel is cozy and you can find everything you need. Special thanks to Margarida, Luis and Mathilde for making feel welcome and part of the team!

I don't even know there to begin. It was my first volunteering experience and it was great. Before coming to Tomar Sónia told me about the festival called “Festa dos Tabuleiros” and that I would be mindblown…what can I say I was mindblown. I felt like I was in a movie. The tasks were feasible but also fun because you never work alone. I'm very thankful for Margarida, Luis, Sónia and Mathilde, they made my stay very special and I will really miss them. I cannot put into words how they made everything so much more fun and interesting and I will always remember the great time I had in Tomar.

Well - distributed workload, food is served early on, no pressure with the tasks, and helpful co workers. Everything makes this hostel a good choice for a volunteer. Staff speak English proficiently but also other languages - Portuguese, French, Spanish. So if you want to learn there are many opportunities

I really enjoyed my time volunteering in Tomar! The team at the hostel is welcoming, friendly, and the town is charming. The responsibilities and my schedule were clear. The one thing I feel like other travelers should know is that Tomar isn't a big city like Lisbon or Porto, if that is what they're looking for. Nevertheless, the town is a lovely place to be and I had a very positive experience volunteering with the hostel. Thank you Sonia, Renato, Luis, and Margarida for a wonderful month in Tomar!

My experience on the hostel 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
