We run a small hostel in a tiny village called Carrapateira, on the west coast of Portugal. We have 20 beds and receive visitors from all over the world. Carrapateira is a beautiful, calm and quiet village, popular with hillwalkers, surfers, families, couples and lone-travellers.

You will have a great oportunity to get to know great people, and exchange experienses across genders, ages and nationalities.
We have created a small unique hostel, which opened August last year. The atmosphere is laid-back and friendly, we have great communal areas which incurage interaction between our guests and visitors. The area attracts a wonderful type of tourists, generally chilled-out, natureloving and outgoing people.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We need some additional help in our hostel until the end of October. We are looking for someone to help out with general cleaning and in the reception. We need someone who is reliable, flexible and who enjoys meeting new people. Language-skills, computer-/website- and/or reception-skills would also be an advantage!
Due to the great mix of nationalities our hostel attracts, it is crucial that all volunteers speak and write fluent English, to be able to help out in the reception and with any questions our guests may have.
Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to answer any emails in other languages.
Portuguese, Spanish, English, Norwegian
We will offer free acomodation in bunkbeds in a mixed dormitory, as well as money for food. The hostel was completely renovated one year ago and offers great, clean, fully-equipped communal areas with kitchen, terrace and living-room, aswell as bathrooms and shower-rooms.
This is a great oportunity for someone who would like to do some surfing on Amado beach, walking along the "Costa Vicentina", reading and writing on our terrace, or simply an authentic experiense in a well-preserved Portuguese village.
