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 ;)

Ô de Casa felt like home almost immediately upon arrival. I ended up staying there three months, and this was my first volunteering experience as a Worldpacker. I worked in the bar at O De Casa, which was always a lively place. The bar shift was very reasonable as well, and it was nice working four days and then having three days free. The bosses and owners are always doing awesome things for the volunteer staff as well as the guests, and I already miss Ô De Casa. I would go back there in a heartbeat

Incredible experience. Even though I do not speak Portuguese, from the first moment everyone welcomed me in a super nice manner. They made sure I felt comfortable, and they helped with everything. Sylvia is the coolest manager possible, she will help you with anything you need, as well as give you advice on what to visit, where to go to eat, where to go for a drink… The staff and the volunteers in O de Casa are super cool and have great energy. The hostel is situated in a super nice area, with the metro really close by. All in all, WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE, Muito Obrigado à família O de Casa!!

My time worked at Ô was amazing! The hostel has an incredible vibe, really cool structure
and it’s located in one of the best neighborhoods in São Paulo.
Working at the reception was very good and fun guaranteed!! You get to meet lots of people from around the world which enabled me to practice my English and Spanish all day.
And as for the staff, i have no words! They’re simply amazing, full of good energy and very welcoming. I certainly made friends for life!
Thank you so much, Syl and everybody!! Ô will always have a very beautiful space in my heart <3
