Uma das melhores experiências da minha vida. Um hostel numa locação boa com um ambiente muito legal. Quero agradecer pessoalmente aos anfitriões Felipe e Dalton pela oportunidade que me deram pra ser parte do team. Agradeço também pra o staff da recepção, Pedro, Ciro e Eduardo por tudo o que me ensinaram e compartilharam comigo.

A melhor experiência da minha vida foi no Pura Vida ! Energia positiva indescritível paira em todo o hostel, e em todos que lá trabalham, é contagiante ! O trabalho é tranquilo e os donos reconhecem o esforço de cada worldpacker . Foi recompensador tudo que vivi ali. Criei uma nova família que vou carregar sempre no meu coração e já espero ansiosa minha próxima ida ao Pura Vida !
