E aí, tranquilo...
Então, minha experiencia Vila Rock foi demais. Pude conhecer um pouco de são paulo e fazer muitas amizades.
Aqui tem sempre muita gente e podemos conversar e aprender muito. Pude também praticar um pouco de inglês.
Também pude fazer amizade com o pessoal do Hostel. Um abraço especial para o Ricardo. Valeu muito a pena! Forte abraço,

A minha experiência em São Paulo não poderia ter sido melhor do que com o Vila Rock Hostel. Só tenho a agradecer pela parceria de todos, me senti em casa, fiz muitas amizades, pratiquei bastante meu inglês, aprendi bastante na função de recepção. Agradeço ao Ricardo pela oportunidade e pela amizade, assim como ao Paulo, Gui, Vanda, Sebá , Nat, Jason e todos que estiveram comigo nessa jornada!!!

Trabalhar no Vila Rock foi (e está sendo, hahah) uma das melhores experiências da minha vida! Aqui tenho sempre a oportunidade de conhecer alguém novo, contar e ouvir histórias de vida, aprender bastante e ainda me sentir super bem com o pessoal do staff, que já virou praticamente minha segunda família longe de casa. Consegui aproveitar a viagem com uma experiência pessoalmente enriquecedora e tenho certeza que outros worldpackers vão ter e curtir essa oportunidade também. Vale muito a pena, recomendo a todos!

Foi muito bom ter ficado ae no hostel, adorei. U povo é muito gente boa, até o chefe é demais. Se eu tería que voltar pra SP voltaría no hostel. Parabens!

Fue muy bueno haberme quedado ahí en el hostal, me encantó! La gente es muy buena onda, hasta el jefe es muy súper! Si tuviera que voltar a Sao PAulo Volvería al hostal. Felicidades!

IT was very good to have been staying no hostel. I loved it! The guys are really amazing! Even the chief is very nice! IF i wold have to come back to Sao Paulo I would go back there. Congrats!
