  • Description


    Casa Amarela Guesthouse is a 3 stories house in Belém. The ground floor is totally private use for the family and also is where the workawayer stays. When a workawayer is around, the family gets bigger for a while.

    We went from travelers to couchsurfers, both travelling and hosting and finally we moved to open this guesthouse almost 5 years ago.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being a workawayer at Casa Amarela is getting to be part of the family. Every other week the family gets to extra teenage boys (14 and 11) and we also have friends from different countries around or even staying over.
    In exchange for this maximum 25 hours a week of your help, we offer the accommodation and basic meals.
    It is easy to visit Lisbon and other cities from our place and we also enjoy having some day trips to the beaches, villages and nice spots close by.
