The Experience

The breakfast is the first moment of contact that guests will have to our staff after they wake up. On our breakfast, the mission is to embrace the people and do all we can to make their day start as good as possible. It’s important to have good music playing, keep the composition of the breakfast itens organized and, most of all, keep yourself always in a good mood, smiling and open to give our guests all the information that they need =)

O melhor Hostel que eu já fiquei na minha vida! Lugar incrível e energia maravilhosa!

Um dos melhores voluntarios que a gente já teve.


Desde os primeiros dias me senti em casa no Okupe! Tanto os hóspedes como outros membros da staff fizeram o lugar incrível, conheci pessoas muito queridas!
Os únicos pontos baixos foram em relação a verba semanal para a alimentação dos packers, que era insuficiente pro número de pessoas, e a lavanderia que não era gratuita como prometido no anuncio :( (mas isso estava sendo revisto).
No mais, o Okupe é um lugar com uma energia e pessoas incríveis, e uma ótima localização (em frente ao metrô!) ;)

Oi Thales, adoramos te-lo por aqui também, sempre responsa com seus horários e funções! Na real, a ajuda mensal é uma AJUDA, não rola mesmo bancarmos toda a alimentação de todas as pessoas, porém diferente de qq hostel que saibamos, além do café da manhã fazemos uma compra dos alimentos básicos (Arroz, legumes, sal, oleo, etc etc) para que cada um complemente à sua maneira! :)


Curti tanto que renovei mais tempo. Ambiente fantástico e galera melhor ainda.

Erick fez um voluntariado excepcional, ajudou muito no hostel!
Com certeza, recomendo ;)


I enjoyed my time in Okupe, the guys are very kind and are always willing to help you. The tasks are not complicated to do, with a big smile and good humor the things turn out well. My time in SP was the best thanks to the company of my Okupe family. I'd go back again! See you soon.
