The Experience

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!

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 .

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!
