The Experience

We're a Hostel inside a plastics Atelier and exposition gallery, and we need a person who likes to socialize and who wants to exchange their abilities at our Hostel for a season in Braga without paying for accommodation. We need someone cheerful, responsible and trustworthy with schedules.

The interior of this hostel is amazing, full of art works and cool stuff that were made by artists. We also made a lot of art here. The jobs and tasks are also really easy and we had a lot of free time for ourselves. The owners are very nice and we had a lot of long chats together. I highly recommend this hostel. Thanks Dans L'atelier for this amazing experience.

Some experiences in life are so deep that is hard to describe with words. This is one of those. All I can say is, I will be forever gratefull for João and João and the team. I wish every W.P. can have the lucky to experience something like that in their W.P. trips. I am out of Dans L'Atelier but Dans L'Atelier will never be out of me. NAMASTE! From the Peregrine Claudio Oscar.
