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 ;)

O Ô de Casa foi (e vem sendo haha, não tem como largar essa equipe maravilhosa <3) uma das melhores experiências que já tive. Foi minha primeira experiência como packer e não poderia estar em um lugar melhor antes de seguir para meu próximo destino ano que vem. A equipe é simplesmente ma-ra-vi-lho-sa, os horários são cumpridos corretamente, tudo é muito claro e transparente. O que era apenas um step virou uma família aqui em São Paulo formada pela staff magnifica e os hóspedes incríveis, com certeza um lugar que levarei no meu coração a vida inteira, muito obrigado por tudo <3

Ô de Casa is clearly the best Hostel in São Paulo, the enviroment is thought with love by the people responsable, it really feels like home. The Staff are my darlings now that I'll never abandone anymore, hahah.

The sandwuiches are unforgetable, the beerpong starts friendships (and end some too haha) and help to start the bonding between people you just met, and my favorite part the roof, oh man, that roof already have a lot of nice memories, being it daylight, raining or with a sky fool of stars (:.

Thank you so much to all these beautiful people <3 <3

My first worldpackers experience started at O de Casa hostel, and I've been welcomed by Sylvia and the rest of staff since day one.
At O de Casa hostel I've met with different people from all over the world, and discussed different ideas and heard interesting stories. The more you see people doing different things, and the more you hear about life in different cities, the more you feel the urge to explore and travel further, which I think is the best thing to do while young; it opens up your mind, gives you new perspectives, and teach you something everyday.

I have no words to describe the experience that i had with this hostel. Just one of the best choices i did during this year as a volunteer around the world. I've learned so much, got to know the most amazing people and had so much fun at the same time! I would recommend here if is your first experience or if you already has been doing this for a long time. I'll really gonna miss my O de Casa family

About the host

Ô de Casa is one of the most tradicional hostels in São Paulo, located a cozy house full of plants in the vibrant Vila Madalena neighborhood (search and search, no other area beats Vila Madalena). Most of our staff comes from Worldpackers, so you will be surrounded by other fellow volunteers sharing life, and a dorm. People here work 30 hours a week for accommodation, but we also have positions for those willing to work more and make s...
