The Experience

Help us only five days a week is the most desired position by our worldpackers. 2 Free days (Sunday and Wednesday) to enjoy the parks and museums, or act in any job paid in restaurants, cafes and shops, or sleep late! Our bar is next to the beautiful garden to the hostel, where people want to share their stories and experiences. It also opens the possibility of implementing new projects for their own pay. Let's have fun?

I have found a place in São Paulo to call it home!

Well let's start!

I had no where to go, I was hopeless and then I've met Marcelo and Andrea, the owners of the Hostel. They offered me to stay with them, they didn't even know me and they gave me a shelter, hope and for the last six months I've earned a Family far from my home.
For the new ones, the owners they provide a training course and a very flexible work schedule which helped me to find a job and make a living here in SP.
I am eternally thankfull for everything!
I love you guys!!!

Unfortunately I stayed only 1 week there, great hosts, great climate. But I subscribed to work 3 hours per day, then they put me to work 5 hours per day and doing another function. Before you go there, be sure that you'll do the thing that you'll apply.

You couldn't wish for a better place to stay. The hostel is very clean, organized, the location is perfect, and the owners are very helpful and open minded. Unfortunately, i didn't spend much time there, but i have met a lot of friends, I felt like i was at home, and i had too much fun! Living at Nomade in Art Hostel was one of the nicest experience i have ever had. I recommend it totally with all my heart as a volunteer. Thank you very much WP! Thank you Marcelo and Andrea! You are the best hostess!! =D
