Le Penguin Hostel

We have an amazing hostel in Faro and want you to be part of our team. We need enthusiastic and social people to help us. This is a great opportunity to spend some time in the sunny Algarve region and to meet people from different cultures while helping us to run a friendly and fun hostel.
So, hard-working, enthusiastic and creative people: you can stop looking for another host, pack your stuff and come to Faro!

We offer great conditions for volunteers to work and also to enjoy their time with us. The working hours are fair and in exchange we offer of course accomodation, free food, discounts on drinks not only in our hostel and plenty of other opportunities and activities

Sadly, one of the worst experiences.

Thankful for some of the amazing volunteers I met.

Staff accommodation is appalling and extremely unsafe. Full of insects, including bed bugs, no proper flooring, huge broken/cracked windows, no locks and dire security. There was constant concern and incidents with intruders and suspicious people trying to break in.
Management is somewhat flexible but it was normalised to work over the agreed 25hours. When I raised this, politely, in the groupchat, it was deemed unprofessional and uncalled for. I felt silenced so I had no choice but to leave early.

This was my first hostel/volunteer experience and I can’t say I was disappointed considering I went alone I was expecting to spend most my time like that. But that’s not the case the managers and other volunteers make you feel like at home from having dinners together, making plans, and going out nearly every night. You meet loads of amazing people and create some of the best memories. The volunteers also got a lot of perks from half price drinks to free activities like surfing as well as the work being very easy. And if you ever run in to a problem the manager or other volunteers would help

I had a lovely experience at Le Penguin. Faro is a very small but vibrant town. The hostel itself is very pretty and homely- especially in the evening when the fairy lights would come on in the common area :) Would definitely recommend if you love meeting new people.

La mejor experiencia de mi vida. Fue mi primer voluntariado y no puedo estar más contento con lo genial que ha sido. El trabajo era sencillo, estaba bien explicado y siempre había alguien para ayudar. Éramos mucho voluntarios lo que ayuda a que la experiencia sea mucho más divertida. Nos ofrecían desayuno y cena, además de descuentos en clubes y el alojamiento que estaba muy bien. La gente es muy social y además, al ser un hostal se conoce mucha gente a diario, lo que hace que no sea monótono ni repetitivo. Sin duda lo recomendaría a todo el mundo, es muy divertido, se aprende y se disfruta.

Leaving Le Penguin felt like leaving a piece of my heart behind. This hostel was the place to be, and the other volunteers were the people to meet. I extended my stay because I just couldn't bear to leave without shedding a tear. The friendships I made were amazing, and the managers were absolute sweethearts who made the whole experience unforgettable. The flexible schedule allowed us to travel together around Algarve a lot. Can't wait to reunite with my hostel crew for more memories!
