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 !!
