About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

We are an awesome hostel and surf school located outside of Lisbon in the sunny Costa da Caparica.
This new family-owned hostel is the realization of lifelong dreams and long-term experience hosting couch surfers, teaching surf lessons, giving tours, and offering great times to fellow travellers in the Lisbon area. You can enjoy a Portuguese paradise at our beautiful red house, located only a 3 minute walk from the beach.
Downtown Costa is just a short bike-ride or a leisurely walk away. We are also close to amazing natural areas like Arrabida that are great for hiking or tours.
Our shared spaces include a large, cozy lounge area with handmade furniture, games, instruments, and a warm, roaring fireplace. There is an outside bar area with grill and wood-burning oven, a big lawn and swimming pool, hammock, and warm outdoor shower. Our kitchen is modern and fully equipped to put together excellent meals!

There are lots of things to help out with - reception & administration, taking photos for our Facebook & Instagram, cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen, making beds, gardening, socializing with the guests. You will work for 6 hours per day with two days off a week. So usually, it is really not hard work, we are nice people and want the volunteers be part of the family smile We also have two cute dogs!

In exchange of your help you share a private room in the hostel with other 4 volunteers. Breakfast is included and you will also have free surf lessons!!

We are looking for volunteers that can stay for at least two weeks but longer stays are very welcome!!

We are looking forward to hear from you! smile
