The Experience

This a a very hands on position for those who don't speak portuguese or english. Our hostel constantly needs help with a several small things on the maintenance, organization and cleanging fields. You will be helping Giva - our mantainance man - to keep the house in order for our guests and Mara - our super cleaner - to keep the hostel fresh. Be sure this will fuel ur days with lots of funny stories, meeting people, and of course, learning.

Minha experiência no Ô de Casa foi de muito aprendizado. Trabalhei no bar (algo que nunca tinha feito antes e totalmente novo), e além disso aprendi também muito sobre mim mesma. O trabalho não é levinho, mas tudo é ensinado com muito detalhe. Fiquei por pouco tempo e agradeço muito :)

A localização é uma das melhores, bem na Vila Madalena, um bairro lindo com muita vida.
😚 Beijos a todos!

saudades, lindona! <3


O Ô de Casa foi (e vem sendo haha, não tem como largar essa equipe maravilhosa <3) uma das melhores experiências que já tive. Foi minha primeira experiência como packer e não poderia estar em um lugar melhor antes de seguir para meu próximo destino ano que vem. A equipe é simplesmente ma-ra-vi-lho-sa, os horários são cumpridos corretamente, tudo é muito claro e transparente. O que era apenas um step virou uma família aqui em São Paulo formada pela staff magnifica e os hóspedes incríveis, com certeza um lugar que levarei no meu coração a vida inteira, muito obrigado por tudo <3

Ô de Casa is clearly the best Hostel in São Paulo, the enviroment is thought with love by the people responsable, it really feels like home. The Staff are my darlings now that I'll never abandone anymore, hahah.

The sandwuiches are unforgetable, the beerpong starts friendships (and end some too haha) and help to start the bonding between people you just met, and my favorite part the roof, oh man, that roof already have a lot of nice memories, being it daylight, raining or with a sky fool of stars (:.

Thank you so much to all these beautiful people <3 <3

My first worldpackers experience started at O de Casa hostel, and I've been welcomed by Sylvia and the rest of staff since day one.
At O de Casa hostel I've met with different people from all over the world, and discussed different ideas and heard interesting stories. The more you see people doing different things, and the more you hear about life in different cities, the more you feel the urge to explore and travel further, which I think is the best thing to do while young; it opens up your mind, gives you new perspectives, and teach you something everyday.

This host receives a lot of worldpackers and has a high average rating.

Ô de Casa is one of the most tradicional hostels in São Paulo, located a cozy house full of plants in the vibrant Vila Madalena neighborhood (search and search, no other area beats Vila Madalena). Most of our staff comes from Worldpackers, so ...
