It was an experience that I will always remember !! It was my first woldpackers, so I searched for a hostel in Brazil to have my first experience, and Sampa Hostel was a great place for that! Great for beginners at woldpackers because the whole staff is very nice and patient, fair at work, and this is great for anyone who is learning the job. The work is not difficult and we feel at home in the hostel. We have plenty of free time to get to know the city. For sure it's a place I would go back !! Highly recommended!!
Thank you Adriana, Aline, Priscila, Andres, Dona Sonia and Fernanda !!

Everyone was so welcoming, the arrangements were flexible and understanding of my routine. We feel like in a small village with a weird and lovely family!

Shoutout to Deborah one of the most adorable fun and intelligent woman I have ever met and Andrea the sweetest heart you will ever meet.

Also Gonçalo, Adriana, Dona Sonia e Fernanda! Best kind of wierdos! <3

My experience living and working at Sampa Hostel has been such a blessing. In the beginning I was nervous and hesitant about what my experience would be like but the owners Deborah and Andrea made me feel so calm and welcome and really boosted my confidence about my job.

I improved my Portuguese a lot and had so many memorable experiences meeting people from all over the world and working with the staff here at Sampa Hostel.

If you want to work in a chill, fun and welcoming environment, Stay at Sampa Hostel!

My time at Sampa Hostel was amazing. It was better than I could supposed someday. The hostel is located in the middle of Vila Madalena, a great neighborhood. The schedule is very flexible and you can improve and learn a lot of new skills there. Deborah and Andrea are incredible, so friendly and helpful. They made me feel confortable and free to enjoy one of the best moments of my life. Thank you so much. See you soon. :D

Me senti muito bem vinda, a começar pela anfitriã que cumpriu e respeitou o meu trabalho exatamente como o combinado. O quarto era muito confortável para dormir, e foi um ótimo aprendizado estar com toda equipe de voluntários que são muito alto astral, nos divertimos muito. A localização do hostel é excelente, e foi exatamente o que esperava!
