Learning & Fun


No Hostel Help Yourself obtive a possibilidade de conhecer pessoas das mais variadas étnias onde pude aprender costumes e valores diferenciados.
Como voluntária! Levarei comigo a certeza de que dei o melhor d mim para melhorar o lugar e tenho conciência de saber reconhecer no outro o quanto é importante se doar para crescermos como uma equipe e de ter a responsabilidade para trabalharmos em conjunto e isto pode ser absorvido de acordo como caráter de cada um. À todos do Help Yorself , Felicidades!

This was my first trip using WorldPackers, and it was a great experience. Everyone treats you like family, no matter where you are from. The hostel is run by volunteers, so it is very relaxed. It is about 40 minutes away from Lisbon, and about 15 minutes walking from the beach. There are several beds, so get used to noise and great parties. I really had a great time, and if you like meeting new people, I'm sure you will too. This hostel doesn't provide food, so if you don't want to spend a bunch of money, you have to buy simple groceries. They truly mean it when they say, "Help Yourself"
