The Experience

So we are a hostel. And a hostel is the place we go to have a good time when travelling. Reception is the heart of the hostel and for everybody to have fun, there's lots of backstage work. This position is all about that: taking care of the whole backstage to help people have the time of their lives. And if you love people, you pretty much know that if everyone is having their best time because of your hard job, you are the one who wins ;)

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.
