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 =)

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.

Minha experiência não poderia ser melhor.
Eu amei a vibe, amei o acolhimento, amei a okupita kkkk
Aprendi mais coisas do que eu imaginava, aprendi a fazer caipirinha e vários drinks.
O Fernando é um fofo e sempre leva a galera pros roles. Todos os staffs são super receptivos.
O hostel é muito bem localizado, a 10 minutos da Paulista caminhando, e a 10 minutos da Augusta tambem, onde você encontra roles para todos os gostos.
Pra quem nunca fez Workdpackers, o Okupe hostel é um ótimo lugar para começar.

Foi incrível o mês que passei pelo Okupe Hostel, vários amigos ganhei, além de conhecer novas culturas e costumes. O Fernando e a Luisa são muito gentis e prestativos. Adorei por ser a minha primeira experiência.

Viver no Okupe foi uma das melhores experiências da minha vida. Que lugar incrível, que pessoas apaixonantes! Agradeço pela oportunidade e pela confiança no meu trabalho. Fui muito feliz no período no Okupe e o hostel foi bem mais do que eu esperava! O trabalho era compatível com o descrito na vaga e todas as funções muito tranquilas de serem executadas. A gerência também sempre foi muito tranquila para ouvir sugestões - Fernando, tu é demais!
O lugar é superbem localizado, o que permite aproveitar o tempo off muito bem. O hostel está sempre movimentado e proporciona conhecer muitas pessoas.

Okupe is a great place to stay in Sao Paulo. It is located in the heart of the city and it allows you to go anywhere in a short time! The workers and Woldpackers I shared my experience with were AMAZING and could not be more thankful. However, there are some things to improve (more attention to the Worldpackers, commodities, etc...
I would definitely come back to Okupe and can not regret having chosen this place! MUITO OBRIGADA

About the host

Okupe Hostel is located on the best zone of São Paulo, between the famous Paulista Ave, Pinheiros neighborhood -known for the best restaurants in town!- and the bohemian Vila Madalena. For those who love to go shopping, we are beside Oscar Freite st, one of the most elegant shopping spots in Brazil. If you wanna enjoy the city by public transportation, we are 15 minutes away from the metro and right in front of a bus stop where there are buses...
