So i was let go by this hostel. Not going to write a story about, but the issue was not just mine but the management too.hostel is really great though especially for the guests.Atmosphere is great,meeting ppl great, barbecues so awesome. What you get for your work is better than most places. Only bad thing was organization and communication with the current volunteer manager. Zero training, very poor communication, and tries to resolve issues with big group text messages, never face to face, which makes me wonder what he'd tell the owners about us. Disappointed it ended so unprofessionally.

I just can say that I had a great time while I was there . I was the chef and it was a pleasure for me to cook for the staff and guests alike . I did feel that I was cooking for family . I learned a lot and I had tons of fun ( speacially the days of te bbq ).

The people was lovely and I know I love the whole team dearly. I was actually sad the day I went away . I can’t wait to go back for another ( and longer ) season .

Special thanks to Rocky , Diogo , Nuno and Alexandra ( and of course all the staff and volunteers ) for making this experience a great one

I'm very happy i came to this hostel. It is a great house with good structure where we can hangout with guests and staff, cook, watch movies, make barbecue every saturday and enjoy the algarve region travelling around cheap! The atmosphere of the hostel is like a house and you will feel like you have a family here :)
Rokas and Alexandra will help you explaining the activities and all you need is to show interest and have initiative to have a great volunteer experience here.
