    Definitely recommend this hostel. Stayed in an 8bed dorm and the bed setup is so private and secure. Definitely the best way to do it. Great value and buffet for breakfast is awesome way to start the day! For tips on visiting sao paulo see our blog

    The staff is easily the best you could find trustable and amicable, Rafael in particular. We even went to a restaurant nearby together at night. Thanks for your hospitality. Kitchen is well-staffed. Nice neighborhood not a noisy one as far as I experienced and close to the metro station. I'd most definetely stay here again.

    awesome hostel, great location. concrete bunk beds provide privacy and there is no movement and noise due to other people as usual in bunk beds. big kitchen and common space, beer and drinks at the bar. I met a lot of Brazilians who spoke English well and were there for work. atmosphere was very good, friendly and helpful staff. great place to stay.

    I don't know much about hostels in general but I really loved my experience at Viva Hostel Design. I enjoyed the relative privacy, the nice acomodations and the facilities. It also has a very interesting location, close to bars, cafes, supermarkets, and the subway. I intend to go back someday, this time with my husband.

    Modern hostel in a nice and safe area. Maybe slightly lacking in atmosphere although were there during the week and not the weekend. We had the private room, beds were comfortable but WiFi in the rooms was not great. Good kitchen and chill area.

    Good location in quiet neighbourhood but close to metro station, helpful staff and good social areas. Bunks were private which gave the dorm rooms a good feel. Kitchen and WiFi good. One recommendation would be to improve the shower pressure, not a big problem as was hot but just felt very weak. Overall good stay and would recommend.

    Located in an excellent position (very close to the underground station, even if you have to climb the Everest to go there :D) with a wonderful staff. Private room is spacious with an enourmous bathroom and a walking shower. I strongly reccomend it!

    Staff were friendly! Very safe hostel as you had to buzz in and out of the entrance m. They let me leave my luggage there for a day at no extra charge and I could chill in the hostel that day while waiting for my overnight bus.

    the hostel itself and the facilities were perfect. really safe and clean hostel. if your looking for a party hostel/meet other travellers then this isn’t the one. literally dead atmosphere and mostly people working in são paulo stay there. the breakfast was really really basic, it wasn’t worth paying for. the washing was really expensive due to the fact it was self service so you were paying for yourself to wait around. i would only recommend if your just looking to relax in the city.
