    Hi there!

    Our Hostel has successfully worked with workaway since 2011, and you guys have helped us grow into the perfect spot from which to check out this monstrously large cityscape! In exchange for a home-base from which to experience the cultural powerhouse that is São Paulo, you can help out in reception, cleaning and maintenance. Working with, and for, Brazilians.

    If you have no experience in any of those areas, we'll teach you how to do them, the Brazilian way! Hopefully later on your path of life, you'll be able to tell someone "Hey, I know how to do that Brazilian style, let me show you!" :-)

    Practice your Portuguese and Spanish, make some local as well as far-off friends, and call this incredible booming megapolis your home-on-the-road!

    Help out 4 days per week, and in return stay with the Family for free. Breakfast, kitchen, and laundry included!!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    About 85% of our customers are Brazilian. You frequently com in contact with our customers, because pretty much all facilities are shared. You will find our customers as interested in your culture, as you are in theirs, and noting the differences and similarities will lead to many interesting ideas. You will quickly end up friends with the other Team members, customers, and explore the city together with all of us. Your Portuguese language skills will skyrocket with just a little effort, because, total immersion!
