The Experience

My name is Nelson, and I am responsible for a hostel in the city of Braga. Our hostel is a place with tradition and many stories, which we want to share with all the people who are passing through here. At leisure I promise to show the region, because we have the advantage of being near the beach (30 minutes by bus) and the mountain (40 minutes by bus), the richness of our gastronomy and enology...

InBraga Hostel was my first volunteering and it went beyond my expectations! Everyone in the team was extremely welcoming since the very first day. I learned new tasks daily, little by little, what made the chores easy to understand and carry out. I learned a lot about hostel management and the history of Braga, what made me more confident to talk to guests and to even come up with ideas to improve their stay in the hostel. Thank you, Nelson, Rafa and Aníbal, for such a wonderful time!! I definitely feel like I have a second family in Portugal ❤︎❤︎

InBraga hostel was a great experience. I was warmly welcomed and well trained and prepared for my task from the Team. The atmosphere is pretty familiar, because many guests stay longer and you really can get to know them. The hostel is direclty in the center The work is well organised and the days of are highly respected. Everyone staff and worldpackers do the same work which is very fair. The work is like in the comittment. I learned a lot and make good friends. The vibe for working is always positive and helpful. Food is fully included and collegues eat together. Highly recomented
