About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We are a small family hostel (just 4 rooms with 20 beds) run by mother and son. The hostel is located in a 53000 mts3 farm, 75 mts from the city (just cross the roman bridge and you're in Silves).

This was my grandfathers house for 40 years and on May 2016 we've decided to turn part of it into an hostel so we are really new to this.

We are simple and friendly people but responsible ones too so we expect you to be the same.

This is not a party hostel (Silves itself is not that typical Algarve touristic city).
