A experiência de colaborar com o início das atividades do Help Yourself em Parede foi giro, pois o trabalho de construção e decoração possibilitou deixar minha arte exposta. Ótima localização no sítio da Parede ao lado do Comboio e perto do mar. Gratidão a toda equipe pela acolhida. Beijinhos

Uma experiência incrível!
As pessoas tornam o ambiente espetacular.
O trabalho é tranquilo e a relação com as pessoas do hostel ajuda a facilitar tudo.
O lugar é agradável, propicia aproveitar o tempo livre e é de fácil acesso e conexão à Lisboa e Cascais.
Vale muito a pena trabalhar aqui! Indico demais!

My stay in Carcavelos was beautiful! The atmosphere in the hostel was great and I met a lot of interesting People who became good friends. The most guests are from Portugal, Brazil and South America, so it was hard for me to understand their language since the most of them were not able to speak english, but they became Family to me! The work in the hostel was not too hard and everyone treated me with respect. The carcavelos area ist perfect for Surfing and spending the evenings in Lisbon. In Addition you can visit cascais and sintra. I really would recommend to stay in this hostel!! :)

It was the worst experience I had in the worldpackers.Nothing in the hostel of the profile is true!My first intention was to stay 2 weeks, but I left the hostel in 4 days, and I was not the only one to do that.In addition, in these 4 days, the inn manager never appeared just sent me messages from Whatsapp with the instructions.There are no real staff working there, the hostel uses volunteer as an employee, making you work 7 hours a day, 6 days a week and do not pay for it.According to the profile of the hostel, you will work 3 days and will take 3 days off, but it is not true!
