My time as viva hostel changed my life forever. I was able to practice speaking Portuguese with the team and also meet people from all over the world. Helcio and the staff are seriously like family and accepted me as soon as I arrived. I spoke Portuguese with the other employees the whole time which really was amazing. I got to put on events like Pub crawl night, Caipirinhas for the hostel & just showing the city to people staying at the hostel. At the same time I was able to meet locals which was my goal to begin with. I strongly recommend working here as I can't imagine a better opportunity.

Acabei não podendo ter minha experiência no Viva por ter sido contratada previamente, mas conheci parte da equipe, conheci o ambiente, todos foram super receptivos e amigáveis comigo. Recomendo!

Viva Hostel is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Helcio and Marco are very funny and confident., the only negative point is Helcio's football team haha. The tasks are easy and everyone like to help each other. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to get to know São Paulo better and the Vila Madalena neighborhood. You're not regretting !!
