My experience at Casa d'Alagoa was really good. The volunteers and guests were amazing and definitely I won't forget all the good times spent there. But it's true that at some point there were problems with the dinner and with some staff. The schedule and working hours could be better organized too. Other than that the hostel and its terraces are incredibly beautiful and I really enjoyed chilling there with other volunteers. I really want to thank Nuno and Diogo for the amazing experience.
I absolutely loved my time in Casa D'alagoa! The crew at the hostel are a warm and funny group of people. Faro is the most charming little town. Also, its such a short way from the rest of the Algarve as well as parts of Spain, that it's possible to travel if your leaves can be adjusted. There was a short discontent amongst the volunteers regarding the availability of meals, but apart from that, the entire experience was beautiful! This being my first volunteering experience, I learnt quite a bit about how hostels work, and what it takes to maintain one. I miss it already :)
Minha experiência na Casa d'Alagoa foi a primeira do tipo e achei incrível. As tarefas se basearam em cuidar da limpeza e arrumação do hostel e cozinhar algumas vezes. O ambiente do hostel faz com que você se sinta em casa! E ter tantos voluntários ajuda a tornar a experiência melhor. Tanto o Nuno, quanto o Diogo e o resto do staff foram receptivos e compreensivos. Apenas no final, quando mudaram o esquema do jantar, o clima mudou completamente. Já não compartilhávamos a mesa com os guests e não tinha mais um sentimento de união do grupo, além de que faltava opções para cozinhar.
Casa d'Alagoa - Faro Hostel is centrally located near Faro "Old Town", just a 5 minute walk from the marina and to some of Faro's most important monuments and museums. And remember the only deserted beach during the Summer in the Algarve is just 30 min. away by boat from Faro!About the host
