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

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!
