João is a wonderful host. He received me very well. He is very communicative, and he knows a lot of Braga's culture. He also gave me flexibility with the volunteering after I found a job. I recommend this experience to everyone.

A unique experience that I had with my first application, the host was friendly and communicative with the tasks and questions of the hostel, we had a nice social interaction, we exchanged stories and cultures, I had good experiences and acquired a knowledge that without this opportunity would be difficult to have, I recommend it for people who admire an older structure with a slight artistic touch of decoration for the environment, a really beautiful place and with a good location (situated close to the city center and some tourist attractions, easy access to bus stops and train station)
