The entire expererience was much more than a volunteer. The flexibility, organization, good comunication between the staff allowd the volunteer have beautiful moments enjoing the city, beaches, sweet spots around the location and cities near by. The hostel is very well located, near than all.And with the bikes that the hostel offer to use, Portugal becames small.
We just want say thanks for the opportunity and experience. Was surprisely beautiful, bacause Carmen, all the attention and care shared in the house and because magic moments that were possible live there. THANKS CARMEN!

It was a wonderful experience. The hostel is wonderful, the city is great, everything was amazing. Manuela was simply amazing with me, she made me super comfortable and was always flexible with me. Luzia and Luiz were great with me all the time. I just did not stay because of lack of time. Recommended.
Foi uma experiência maravilhosa. O hostel é maravilhoso, a cidade é ótima, foi tudo incrível. A Manuela foi simplesmente incrível comigo, me deixou super a vontade e foi super flexível comigo. A Luzia e o Luiz também foram ótimos comigo o tempo todo. Só nao fiquei mais por falta de tempo.
