O gaia hostel é bem localizado, super limpo e organizado. A Fernanda e os staffs Alysson, Jhonatan, Marisa e Marli são super gente boa, pessoas incríveis de se conviver, tanto que já cheguei e me senti em casa. As tarefas são simples e o ambiente agradável, tanto que vou ficar mais! Obrigada por me receberem tão bem!
