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.

Um dos melhores voluntarios que a gente já teve.


Desde os primeiros dias me senti em casa no Okupe! Tanto os hóspedes como outros membros da staff fizeram o lugar incrível, conheci pessoas muito queridas!
Os únicos pontos baixos foram em relação a verba semanal para a alimentação dos packers, que era insuficiente pro número de pessoas, e a lavanderia que não era gratuita como prometido no anuncio :( (mas isso estava sendo revisto).
No mais, o Okupe é um lugar com uma energia e pessoas incríveis, e uma ótima localização (em frente ao metrô!) ;)

Oi Thales, adoramos te-lo por aqui também, sempre responsa com seus horários e funções! Na real, a ajuda mensal é uma AJUDA, não rola mesmo bancarmos toda a alimentação de todas as pessoas, porém diferente de qq hostel que saibamos, além do café da manhã fazemos uma compra dos alimentos básicos (Arroz, legumes, sal, oleo, etc etc) para que cada um complemente à sua maneira! :)


Curti tanto que renovei mais tempo. Ambiente fantástico e galera melhor ainda.

Erick fez um voluntariado excepcional, ajudou muito no hostel!
Com certeza, recomendo ;)


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.
