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!

Minha primeira experiência com a Worldpackers e foi demais! O hostel é bem equipado e as tarefas são bem tranquilas. A Dona Fatima é um amor de pessoa, ela sempre estará disposta a te ajudar no que for preciso!

Gostei muito da experiência de trabalhar, conhecer pessoas e aproveitar para visitar lugares lindos em Cascais, Lisboa e região. O Hostel é de fácil acesso a linha de Comboios e as escalas de trabalho são boas, permitindo encaixar pequenas viagens aos arredores.

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"
