    I really loved this hostel and I have stayed here twice. The first time, it was super busy and the atmosphere was very much in a going out mood. There were no parties in the hostel, but all the guests were easily getting along and in the mood to go to clubs together. The second time, it was a bit quieter. Overall, both times the hostel had a super relaxed atmosphere. I had to work a bit also during my stay, and the hostel provides a space for that in the living room. Finally, I arrived in the middle of the

    Lovely hostel - can’t overstate how comfortable and nice the rooms were, clean and the beds especially were really comfortable and spacious. It was in a great location and had beautiful wall art, it had a really nice feel to it. It wasn’t the busiest place ever but we were there in low season.

    We stayed for 9 days at Viva Hostel Design. It was the first leg of our trip through Brazil. We had a very good time here. The neighborhood is very good. The street where the hostel is located is very good and safe. Compared to the rest of Sao Paulo, we felt very good here. There's many restaurants, supermarkets, etc. on a safe walking distance. It's close to many interesting landmarks. It's a good place to talk with people. The common areas have people from many places.

    The security was great. you get a card to enter the room. My room had a nice ensuite bathroom, there is a big kitchen and a movie room, there is a lot of space which is nice. with all that said, BEWARE I had NO WiFi in my room. For some people, it's not a big deal, but for me, it's a deal-breaker. WiFi worked great in the common areas. Other than that is a pretty good hostel, skews young on the bottom floor, I.E. dark with colored neon lights and loud rap music.

    The atmosphere was not very social here. People largely kept to themselves. But good facilities — kitchen, laundry, bathroom in each room, foosball table, TV room. Just know that it may not be as easy to make friends here as in some other hostels.

    Clean hostel with good kitchen facilities. In a good district (Vila Madalena) safe, lots of bars and restaurants. Not a lot going on in the hostel. Might be time of year though.

    The hostel is in a good neighborhood and that’s probably why it is still in business. I found plugged toilet, leaky sink, uncleaned kitchen during my stay. Though some staffs were apologetic and sincere in addressing the issue but materially nothing changed at the end of the day. This place is mostly visited by God’s favorite people and if you are not one of them then I’d say plan your stay somewhere else because I doubt you will have a memorable stay or fit in at all here.

    Quarto com infiltração completamente mofado. Banheiro muito sujo! Nao por causa dos usuarios, mas por falta de limpeza adequada. Por causa da infiltração até as amas estão com umidade. Desagradável!
