The hostel was a blast! The host, Lucas, was kind and welcoming upon arrival. Similarly, the environment of the hostel is joyful, friendly and upbeat. There's always something to do or someone to chat with. I had a very pleasant experience with the guests as well. We mostly communicated in Spanish or broken English, but they were truly wonderful housemates. The work itself was pretty straightforward; I mostly did dishes, swept, mopped and other general household chores like cleaning bathrooms. But, the hours went by quickly and the time off made it all worth it.

I loved every second of my time here. The people in this house are so kind and I made more memories than you could imagine. You have so much free time and the house is close to the beach, train stations, and a cute park. And you know, the kitchen is usually dirty and the shower doesn't always have hot water. But if you can get past not living lavishly, it is 100% worth it to volunteer here. This place will always hold a spot in my heart:)

My time at Carcavelos was very nice, I stayed for 2 weeks and had lots of time off, to explore Lisbon and other cities close by. Lucas was a caring host and made me feel welcome, since the hostel is very new maybe a few rules need to be better enforced like for the guests to clean there own dishes, but everything else was nice :)

The host is outgoing and friendly. The house is a good location right by a train station to lisboa and cascais and also near the beach. There are several 8 ft foamie surfboards and a smaller board as well. There are wetsuits. Theres a tv and equipped kitchen for making food. I had a great time here!
