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

As my first worldpacker experience, I couldn't have been choose a better place to stay. Okupe Hostel has a great environment, the staff team and the volunteers treated me like a family member since my first day there. The tasks were easy and the shifts were exactly what was announced in the website. I recommend the experience to the future members and I'm already missing all the friends I just made.

My experience on the okupe was wonderful, the staff are the best and I made a lot of friends.We didn't work too much, the job was fair. The food was enought for us, no much but ok. I learned a lot about how to deal with diferent persons, in my time there had staff from all over Brazil, from Venezuela, from Spain and Argentina.

About the host

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...
