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 an amazing 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 we give good accommodation and delicious food in return!

To be honest our experience at the Le Penguin hostel wasn’t really that great. Unfortunately, since the very first day one of us became the subject of our boss’s inappropriate behavior, which made our work and stay at the hostel super uncomfortable. That situation made us leave after just one week even though we were supposed to stay there for three.
On a positive note, the hostel itself is a nice place. The work is not hard either and you can find new friends really quickly. However, you need to like a party lifestyle because there’re a lot of drinking games and going out involved.




Was an amazing place to work, everyone was lovely and so easy going with hours, and work around you. Plus the food they make you is incredible. Highly recommend anyone volunteering here




Thank you so much Le Penguin Family!!
I had such an amazing experience, Diego and Kate run the hostel really really well, from Daily Family Dinners, to all you can drink Bucket Nights, Quizz and BBQ Nights, there is always something happening and having fun is a must!
The work it self is very chill and hours are super fair, leaving you with plenty of time to go to the beach and do day trips around other cities within the Algarve.
I had a really good room, breakfast, dinner and sometimes leftovers for lunch and the staff is like a family, can’t wait to comeback!
Obrigado Le Penguin!




This was my first volunteer experience and it turned out to be one of the best decisions ever. I fell in love with the place /people the second I arrived. Everyone here is kind, openminded, friendly,fun and it's easy to make a lot of new friendships. Not to mention the food which was delicious. You can never get bored in the hostel, there is always something fun to do. We went to the beach together, did daily trips, played drinking games, went to the bars. Its a pefect place to spend summer holidays.
I am really glad that I had an opportunity to be part of this amazing team <3




Start com recomendo. A equipe de voluntários é quem comanda tudo, desde parte da limpeza, até cozinha, camas e principalmente a diversão de TODAS as noites. O trabalho não é pesado e todos se ajudam. Cumpra com seus deveres e divirta-se com todos nas horas vagas! Localização ótima. O hostel é bacana. Quem faz o lugar e momento é você: eu fiz o meu tempo lá ser ótimo!!
