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 ;)

Learning & Fun




I had such a great time at Ô De Casa since day one. Working as a bartender at the hostel was as fun as I expected and I only have great memories of my time there. Unfortunately, I had to cut my volunteering time short due to the Coronavirus crisis. I’d love to volunteer there again once this is over. Thanks for everything, you guys!




I had one of the best times of my life here. I leave with the certainty that my heart will stay here for some time. The job is straightforward, and you get exactly what they say in the worldpackers description. São Paulo also offer a insane amount of possibilities. Don't think twice, just come to "Ô de Casa". I'm leaving now because if I stay more I'm afraid I'll not be strong enough to leave in the future. I just loved this place and I'm blessed for the time spent here.




O de Casa Hostel is definitely the coolest hostel to be in Sao Paulo. Location, staff and vibe are the best pros. They all make you feel part of the family and I couldn't recommend them enough. The only thing you should be aware of is the lack of a real kitchen, which doesn't allow you to cook your own daily meals. All in all, a great experience which I would totally recommend!




One of the best hotels I've been in and without a doubt the best one so far to work as a volunteer. 👍




Ô de Casa Hostel won the prize for Best Hostel of Brazil and it was more than deserving it. It is a fantastic hostel, with a great vibe, extremely social, where you will meet people from all over the globe. Behind the curtains, the owners and manager are involved daily, it is extremely well organized and also treat the staff fairly and with consideration. My experience couldn't be better and I think it will be very hard to top it. The only thing that could improve is that I wish that my function could be done some days in the morning, so I could go earlier to bed.
