Great first Worldpackers experience! The hosts are really friendly and the work is not too hard. And you get off on the agreed times. It was also great getting to know the other volunteers, even though they didn’t always speak English. It’s not too crowded at this time of the year in Geres, but you can reach Braga within 1 hour with public transport, and go anywhere from there.

Even though they don’t always speak English, they feel like your family ! Klaudia and Carlos take good care of you and make sure you are okay. The job is very easy and only 4 hours. After your work you are free and you can do what you want to do. I really recommend this Bed & Breakfast to everyone and I wished I stayed for a longer time! 🥰

Carlos and Klaudia are very good hosts who will make you feel right at home and make sure everything is okay during your stay and always there to sort out problems if you encounter any. The hostel is set inside a lovely village with a beautiful view to wake up to in the morning, the work hours are good which go by quickly with the productive work you do. Too many great places to visit as well in its surrounding area so don't miss out!

Nations Geres Bed&breakfast was my first volunteering experience and it couldn’t be better. Working hours were just like we agreed on and the tasks weren’t hard. It is a great place to connect with nurture and meet great people.
Klaudia and Carlos are great hosts who do whatever it takes to make you feel at home.
