Okupe Hostel Jardins

Okupe Hostel is located on the best zone of São Paulo, between the famous Paulista Ave, Pinheiros neighborhood -known for the best restaurants in town!- and the bohemian Vila Madalena. For those who love to go shopping, we are beside Oscar Freite st, one of the most elegant shopping spots in Brazil. If you wanna enjoy the city by public transportation, we are 15 minutes away from the metro and right in front of a bus stop where there are buses that take you everywhere in this town. We believe on the diversity of cultures, beliefs and personalities that only São Paulo has, that's why our hostel welcomes the crazy backpackers, that want to enjoy the city as much as they can, but also guests that come to study or work at the city and need a good night sleep and a complete breakfast. Okupe's mission is to promote the interaction between these two kind of people, 'cause in the end a hostel is always a place to know people, teach a little of what you know and learn from the others. Okupe has an amazing structure that counts with a kitchen, a lot of bathrooms and vests, TV room with games (and a snooker table! yey!), shared and private rooms, a rooftop with hammocks, and a bar to drink all you can after a day on the gray city. We work in a big group as a family! Come and enjoy us!

Our main goal here is to make our guests and our staff equaly happy. Everyone needs to be completely satisfied with the experience of being here, the people around and the environment in general. We're like a family, we cook everyday, hangout and have great moments together, working as a team to make our house be the best it can be. I have the mission to keep everyone excited and happy to be here, and for that I spend most of my time chilling out with everyone and keeping myself opened to any complain or improvement suggestion.

I enjoyed my time in Okupe, the guys are very kind and are always willing to help you. The tasks are not complicated to do, with a big smile and good humor the things turn out well. My time in SP was the best thanks to the company of my Okupe family. I'd go back again! See you soon.

Minha experiência não poderia ser melhor.
Eu amei a vibe, amei o acolhimento, amei a okupita kkkk
Aprendi mais coisas do que eu imaginava, aprendi a fazer caipirinha e vários drinks.
O Fernando é um fofo e sempre leva a galera pros roles. Todos os staffs são super receptivos.
O hostel é muito bem localizado, a 10 minutos da Paulista caminhando, e a 10 minutos da Augusta tambem, onde você encontra roles para todos os gostos.
Pra quem nunca fez Workdpackers, o Okupe hostel é um ótimo lugar para começar.

Viver no Okupe foi uma das melhores experiências da minha vida. Que lugar incrível, que pessoas apaixonantes! Agradeço pela oportunidade e pela confiança no meu trabalho. Fui muito feliz no período no Okupe e o hostel foi bem mais do que eu esperava! O trabalho era compatível com o descrito na vaga e todas as funções muito tranquilas de serem executadas. A gerência também sempre foi muito tranquila para ouvir sugestões - Fernando, tu é demais!
O lugar é superbem localizado, o que permite aproveitar o tempo off muito bem. O hostel está sempre movimentado e proporciona conhecer muitas pessoas.

Okupe is a great place to stay in Sao Paulo. It is located in the heart of the city and it allows you to go anywhere in a short time! The workers and Woldpackers I shared my experience with were AMAZING and could not be more thankful. However, there are some things to improve (more attention to the Worldpackers, commodities, etc...
I would definitely come back to Okupe and can not regret having chosen this place! MUITO OBRIGADA
