    Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting

    I have booked this hostel for new year for 5 days. After booking and paying a deposit i recieved an email from a guy claiming to work there asking for full payment up front which could not be done by paypal. Has anyone else had to do this? Seems a little dodgy to me? Thanks.

    Adoro o programa. Muito bacana esse clima de família e a relação que criam com os turistas. Queria saber se oferecem empregos de verão ou algo do tipo.. Nem precisa ser pago, só pela experiência de vida mesmo. Acharia muito legal. Aguardo a resposta. Obrigado
