A Casa D’Alagoa se tornou o meu lar desde o primeiro instante que coloquei os pés lá dentro. O trabalho foi bem esclarecido e os horários organizados. O trabalho é duro, mas bem recompensado. Uma dica: Se entregue com todo o seu coração, não adianta sair de casa para receber experiências incríveis sem se doar. Cada dia foi especial, e no final a parte mais difícil de todas foi deixar minha casa em Faro.
I love this place and all you guys, Lais, Faby, Rocky, Helena, Farah, Fernando, Isa, Vitinho, Orlando, Daniel, Diego, Nuno... I will never forget all the love I receive in Casa D’Alagoa ❤
At the beginning of my stay I was not made to feel very welcome by some, there was some bitchy behaviour coming from some of the other female volunteers and staff that were already there and a cliquey environment to contend with. But everyone's experience is different and I wouldn't let that put you off because there is a new rotation of people all the time , I was just unlucky. All in all the hostel is a great place to experience Portugal and the guests are interesting and varied from all over the world .
Excelente todo! Unas de las mejores experiencias que tuve, muy lindo y comodo el hostel, el ambiente de trabajo es muy agradable y la gente con la compartí la experiencia fue amable y divertida, la verdad es que espero volver algun día... Gracias a todos ❤ especialmente a Nuno por darme la oportunidad de formar parte :) Gracias
I spent 1 month at Casa D'Alagoa and since the first week I felt like I was home. It's definetly a very sociable place "where you treat your friends like family". We had barbecue parties every Saturday, and sat together for dinner with guests everyday.
The cleaning work is hard, but fair, and since the vibe (of the staff and the other volunteers) is so good, you end up having fun while working. The night shift is easy to learn and usually calm.
This was a life-changing experience and I am totally grateful to everybody for the amazing time I lived there. I will miss you very much! <3
My time in Faro exceeded all my expectations! As a first time volunteer I couldn’t have picked a better hostel, it’s as close to a home away from home as you can get. The work is regimented but with such a good team and management, as I was lucky to have, it barely felt like work. I felt so looked after here and I will miss you all terribly!
