Learning & Fun


Mano, trabalhar por aqui foi uma experiência totalmente única, difícil expressar tudo isso em palavras, mas foi demais. Conviver com essa equipe foi super evolutivo pra mim, aprender tudo que aprendi, os (muitos) hospedes que acabaram se tornando amigos... foi tudo grandioso e eu vou carregar isso comigo pro resto da vida.
Primeiro: GRATIDÃO ao Hostel Alice, à cada uma dessas pessoas que fazem esse lugar funcionar!

it was my second experience as worldpacker : an unique position by working in the reception. Thereupon, i could have the chance to learn all the reservation proceedings , so it gave me the opportunity to Interact in person with cool guests from Brazil and abroad too. As a result of this, I'll also lead this my new background to a lifetime. I'd like to thank my awesome stay and help to the owners Denise ,Renata and the manager Dante as well . Hostel alice 's been innovating with new conquests inside the venue , and I truly wish all the best for their endeavor. Many ,Many thanks!!

Fui muito bem recebido no hostel. O trabalho está bem definido é a escala pronta para quando chegar. As donas Denise e Renata são muito gentis e justo nesse momento estavam numa fase de mudança, adicionando uma Padova Vegan, remodelando a cozinha e trocando do Gerente do Hostel, assim e tudo achei a experiência muito boa já que eles têm um esquema de trabalho muito definido e sempre tentando melhorar. Os voluntários e funcionarios que conhecí forom bom demais. Eu saí antes do planejado já que mudei meu roteiro e eles compreenderem sem reclamar. Abraços.

Mi segunda experiencia como worldpackers fue aqui en el Hostel Alice y realmente el trato de todos fue genial desde el primer dia, hay un gran equipo de trabajo. En cuanto a la ubicación del hostel es muy buena ya que esta cerca de la estación del metro y bus puedes ir a cualquier punto turístico de la cuidad rapidamente desde aqui, también hay supermercados y tiendas muy cerca. En infraestructura es muy acogedor te hace sentir como si estuvieras en casa. Sinceramente recomiendo el hostel Alice!

About the host

Our hostel is an oasis in São Paulo. Quiet, but at the same time in the most amazing neighbourhood: Vila Madalena, just a few steps away from the subway. You're gonna find culture every corner you turn: bars, clubs, restaurants and galeries. You'll get the feeling you're at your grandmas after partying all night.
