In 8 months of traveling this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in.The moment you walk in your made to feel at home. The owners John and Kadhine take the time to get to know you as well as the other staff working there. The hostel is new and modern, so nice that you almost want to hang out there all day! As mentioned in some other reviews the hostel is at the bottom of a big hill but it isn't that bad and let's be honest we could all do with a little extra exercise when we are travelling!!


Good clean hostel with nice spaces to hang out in, and a great little kitchen. At the bottom of a steep hill but location ideal otherwise. Could offer more in terms of tours and things to do in São Paulo.


It's very nice hostel with nice people and staff. However the way to the subway station is a really high hill, it's very hard to climb, it will feel like hiking. But about the hostel, well, you gotta love it!!


The only problem about this hostel is that you have to walk up in a big hill to access the metro. For everything else, it's a great place to stay.

Very secure premises with a modern feel. However it needs utensils in the kitchen to cook with! There were no chef knives for cutting meat, no wooden spoons or spatulas for frying things in land or pots, very strange? Disappointing as the kitchen is well equip otherwise. Overall we enjoyed our stay, the staff were very helpful. Would recommend.

Hello. How are you doing? Thanks for your review. It really helps us improve as hosts. We do care a lot about our guests' safety, so the whole building is monitored 24/7. Concerning the kitchenware... We want to inform that new utensils as knives, spoons , can openers etc, have been provided so guest can make the most of our kitchen. It was a pleasure having you here with us, Hope to see you back Aki Hostel Team sends you best regards!


Not a bad hostel, but the big 15 bed dorm was not very nice. The bathroom was smelly and had a broken toilet. It was very cheap, but I would recommend staying in a room with fewer beds as it's probably nicer. The shared facilities and areas were nice and modern (but the bedroom was not - I understand why they don't put a picture of it on the listing) The staff were friendly, but when we asked for information about the metro they didn't seem to know. Christian was excellent though, very nice guy
