The Experience

We are located in a historical city, with culture and with some of the biggest events in Europe, including the largest medieval reenactment festival every summer. We'd like to receive someone to play music and make art in the hostel, there is a bar and it would be great to have people to entertain the guests. Also, we'd like you to could cook a special dinner from your own country. For sure you'll have a great time here!

Hostel da praça is amazing! The hostel is always clean, everything is so new, fully equipped, in the center of the city near the bars (rua direita and porta13 are really cool). The city is really small but it’s fantastic, lots of history and culture. You also have beaches and Porto nearby, so you can explore all of those places. The staff is the best!!! Thank you to the owner Rui, and the employers Paulo, Ana Sofia, Joana, Flávio, Ana (trainee), Diana, Rita! Thanks for teaching me, I had an amazing time with you! I would definitely recommend hostel da praça to anyone who wanna have lots of fun




It was a very good experience, the staff were super nice and the hostel ver confortable. I highly recommend this experience.




Hostel da Praça is amazing. It’s a great place to volunteer! The staff was great and teached me everything, we had a nice moments together. Santa Maria da Feira is a nice little town but cute as it can be, good pubs and beautiful places to visit like Castle, it’s near Porto, just 30min from. The work is easy and fair, you’ll a lot of time to explore. I had I really greats moments in this city! Many thanks, I loved !!




It was a great way to experience a little bit of local town life in Portugal. Santa Maria da Feira is a beautiful town. The work at the hostel (wich is amezing and new) is fairly easy and the staff was always nice, specially Carol, who is the coolets human being in this entire town.
