Foi a minha primeira experiência no Worldpackers, Eu cheguei ao hostel e fui muito bem recebido por todos os voluntários. O gerente do hostel foi muito bom, apresentou a escala de trabalho flexível para os voluntários trocarem os dias de serviços, conforme suas necessidades. Estar no Help Yourself Hostels Carcavelos foi uma grande experiência de vida onde tive a oportunidade de criar novas amizades que levarei para a vida.

Uma experiência maravilhosa

A experiência foi maravilhosa, eu fui recebida super bem, os horários e o trabalho são realmente muito bons . A única coisa que eu não gostei foram as acomodações pois no app fala que seria um quarto da equipe e na verdade é um quarto com 20 pessoas dividido entre hospedes e staff, as fotos que tem são na verdade de suítes para os hospedes, fora isso não poderia pensar num lugar melhor para minha primeira experiência.

About the host

We're located between Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra - the big three centers of tourism in the area - and close to the train station and transportation to all these places. Even if we're close to all these we still are in a very quiet and secluded zone, close to the Carcavelos beach, as well as a number of other world-renowned surf spots, all year-round outdoor activities and a unique cultural offer in Europe.
