This was my first hostel/volunteer experience and I can't say I was disappointed considering I went alone I was expecting to spend most my time like that. But that's not the case the managers and other volunteers make you feel like at home from having dinners together, making plans, and going out nearly every night. You meet loads of amazing people and create some of the best memories. The volunteers also got a lot of perks from half price drinks to free activities like surfing as well as the work being very easy. And if you ever run in to a problem the manager or other volunteers would help

I had a lovely experience at the hostel. Faro is a very small but vibrant town. The hostel itself is very pretty and homely- especially in the evening when the fairy lights would come on in the common area :) Would definitely recommend if you love meeting new people.

Leaving the hostel felt like leaving a piece of my heart behind. This hostel was the place to be, and the other volunteers were the people to meet. I extended my stay because I just couldn't bear to leave without shedding a tear. The friendships I made were amazing, and the managers were absolute sweethearts who made the whole experience unforgettable. The flexible schedule allowed us to travel together around Algarve a lot. Can't wait to reunite with my hostel crew for more memories!

The hostel is one of the best places in the world. This was my first experience traveling and working abroad and it was amazing. The managers help out a lot, the volunteers are all great, and there are always so many interesting guests from around the world. I would highly recommend here for anyone looking to travel and explore Faro/the Algarve. And last but not least, I got to meet Viktoria :)

It was a great experience at the hostel! There are a lot of other volunteers so you can really connect and create a good bond with them. The work isn't that hard, but you have to learn it from the other volunteers witch is not always the right way. You can easily ask for days off in a row and go on other trips because Faro is pretty small but also a beautiful and nice city. The staff house isn't perfect but it works. I also really recommend this if you like to go out and party! Thank you for this nice first experience
