Hey there! having you with us were a really nice experience, you help us with a lot of project those were stooked by a long time. I really hope that you have a great time in Europe!



Wanderlust was my third place in Sao Paulo and I have no doubt about this place, was since then, the most place where I really feel free. My experience there was like I've been watching on YouTube before then... experiences shared from others Packers. The host (Ricardo) is fun, funny and easy going a looooooot. This hostel receive often Packers of the whole world! If you wish a place to make a good friendships and to learn cultures /languages about different parts of the world. I SUPER RECOMMEND!🤓🤓🚴🤙🤙

Os 10 dias em que estive no Wanderlust passaram muito rápido! Valeu muito a pena a experiência. O hostel fica numa região próxima à museus e parques famosos da cidade. E também próximo à avenida Paulista. Tendo também metrô na região. Tive uma ótima recepção e fui muito bem tratado pelo Ricardo e pelos outros voluntários! Tive a oportunidade de pela primeira vez conviver com pessoas de outros países e começar de alguma forma a desenvolver meu inglês e até mesmo o espanhol! O trabalho é bem tranquilo e fácil. Gostei de aprender a mexer no sistema hqbeds!

Grato pela experiência!!!

Olá! Ficamos feliz que tenha aproveitado toda sua experiência conosco! Continue em seu caminho de conhecer novos lugares :))



É um ótimo hostel para se conectar e aprender, as atividades são bem tranquilas, o anfitrião Ricardo muito solícito, realmente foi uma experiência muito proveitosa na minha vida, não me arrependo e recomendo.
