The Experience

1 de Março a 31 de Março 2020 - Join our hostel volunteer team and help us have the best meals in town. You will be cooking for staff and guests and you will have to be in charge of our kitchen and our menus too. Depending on how fast you are, your day will be busy for about 5 to 8 hours. We will help you clean everything but if we are to full you will be in trouble... so careful with those portions!

Casa D'Alagoa team is mostly friendly and make you feel welcome from the start. The house in which the hostel is located is really great, you'll end up feeling like it's your own home!
I dont know why but the people who stay here (guests) are incredible friendly, we met some that became our family.
We're really thankful for this experience, we could not have asked for a better one. Little tip: just make sure to stablish the conditions from the start, in our case the manager changed during our stay so some of the rules changed aswell, but I dont think this usually happens.
Thank you all!!

It was my first experience as a volunteer and it couldn't have been better !! When I arrived I already got a day off to get to know the city and the people. I was working at Hostellicious, where the work was super smooth. The staff are very friendly and accessible, in addition to the rest of the staff who work there are incredible. I hope to meet you guys again one day, thanks Alexandra and all the staff.

It was my first volunteering experience and it was wonderful.
I had so much fun all the time, with the host, the other volunteers and the guests.
Casa d’Alagoa is a beautiful hostel with a comfy and fun vibe, you feel like family after you spend just one day there.
I would recommend it to everyone who is going to Portugal, be it for one day or one month
