My experience couldn't be better… I have this team as sisters and brothers from now and I am truly glad for everything! Roy and Aline are super nice and helpful. Sunny is the kindest dog in this world and the house feels like home. Struggling to say goodbye 🩵

Thank you so much Laisa. Sorry that I missed the date to give you a review. You stayed with us longer, so I missed it. I just wanted to say that we were super happy to have you as a volunteer and as an amazing person that you are in our hostel / home. You were so helpful. One of the most proactive person that I know. You are now part of our family and our doors are always open to you. See you next summer <3<3<3



Roy and Aline are the best hosts I could ever ask for. the hostel is an amazing place where you will feel very welcomed, they will try their best to make you feel part of the family. I feel so amazingly lucky for the opportunity that I had to be part of this incredible place with incredible people 🤍 thank you for everything!

The time I spent at the hostel was so much fun! I connected with the team and we had many experiences, from days at the beach to nigh out together, everything you can expect from a summer month. The hours worked are respected and the shifts between working and free days are great for making the most of your days off and getting to know more of the Algarve. Sunny completes the days and is the cutest dog ever. Thank you OTH team for everything! I recommend this experience!

This was my second volunteer experience and it exceeded all my expectations. The hosts are wonderful, Aline and Roy made me feel at home and part of the family. Also the mascot of the hostel, Sunny, is the cutest and smartest dog in the world, I wanted to take him to my home haha. The work is very quiet, we had a lot of free time to explore the beaches of Albufeira and the hostel is in a great location, just 5 minutes from the nearest beach. If you are looking for a place to make friends, learn a lot, travel and practice languages, this is the perfect place. I will miss the OTH 2022 family!<3

The hostel experience could not have been better. The hosts are amazing, they made us feel like part of the family, being very welcoming, they are always with our team working together. The tasks, schedules, flexibility were all respected. The location of the hostel is wonderful, less than 10 minutes walking to the beach, and there is everything you need (markets, pharmacies, restaurants and etc). My fiancée and I would 100% recommend this place, regardless if you are traveling alone or you are traveling with a couple or a friend this is a good opportunity.
