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 !!

Minha experiência como worldpacker no Viva foi maravilhosa, o staff é incrível, o hostel é muito bom, e o trabalho em si é tranquilíssimo. Me senti em casa durante toda a estadia e recomendaria pra todo mundo essa experiência.

Great hostel in the Vila Madalena neighbourhood!
The staff is always friendly, always wanting to help and always recommending new activities and places to go!

This is a great place to work to have fun or just to chill a bit!

Viva Hostel was my best experience as a Worldpacker so far, the place has such a good atmosphere and the people that work there are amazing! I felt very welcome in there and extended my stay for a while. The owners are very friendly and helpful with the work, and the accomodations are really nice. Plus, it's located in a great neighborhood, close to the best nightlife spots of Vila Madalena and also to the underground and a lot of facilities.
I'm really grateful by staying in there and meeting so many nice people around!
