The Experience

Preparing breakfast, caipirinhas, sandwiches & keeping the vibe up is what we need for people volunteering at this position. If you've worked with food before and you are a fast and smart person, congrats, you are almost part of the team. If not, still u can give it a try ;). U'll be working at our bar open for guests and locals, in Vila Madalena, SP's most bohemian zone. And hey, this might be the coolest job you will have, ever.

Staying at the hostel was an incredible experience. Before applying, I had already heard from other packers I had the chance to talk with the Hostel was on another level, and after three months there, I can only say the hype is real. I kept extending my stay, never ready to leave the Hostel's laid-back atmosphere and crazy fun staff, nor the amazing area of city it is located at. If you're planning a trip to São Paulo, I can't recommend the hostel enough. You'll have endless opportunities to practice languages with guests, as well as learning all about other cultures.

I am at a loss for words. The experience was really life changing. All the people, all the events, all the happenings. From the first day I was included in the family. I was fortunate to be able to stay 2 months. Which only made leaving much more difficult. I will end with Saudade!! Thank you the hostel. Until next time.
