I had a great time while volunteering at Cafe Hostel. Everyone who was working there became good friends and everyday was a great experience. The tasks were clearly laid out and it was great because I was working with friends and everyone was available when learning the ropes. Outside of volunteering the area around Cafe Hostel is awesome and there were lots of bars and restaurants to explore. I also really liked how the staff at the hostel were able to get involved with the guests and plan events. Cafe Hostel was awesome I highly recommend it.

Cafe hostel was much more than a volunteer job, it was an unforgettable experience .Not just for the place, but because of the people. From the staff that teached me everything I should know about the work and where always there if something happened; to the volunteers that made my time there the best! A place that I felt home, where the parties were crazy/fun, the endless netflix days, the best neighborhood and the coolest thing? You meet amazing people from all over the world. Choose Cafe Hostel if you want to have the best time.
Home is where the heart's, and mine is at Cafe Hostel. ♥

It almost leaves tears in my eyes to talk about Café Hostel. The 2 months I spent there were extremely amazing. The hostel is gorgeous, cozy, you instantly feel at home. The staff is amazing, Luis and Catarina are sooo much fun, the owners are awesome, the breakfast is the best, the guests are incredible. And Vila Madalena is a great place to live as well. My eternal love for Café hostel!! I hope i can go back one day :* ♥

Walking through the gate & into Cafe Hostel with a backpack on my back & butterflies in my stomach - unsure of the mammoth that is Sao Paulo - I was greeted by laughter & hugs, and it didn't take me long to realise that walking through that gate that day was one of the best decisions I'd ever made. The other volunteers soon became siblings to me & they are now friends that I'll keep with me for life. The activities, the vibe, the cleanliness & the staff made CH a place that I will always go back to, again & again. CH is so much more than a hostel, it's a family, and it's the place I call home.
