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

Could do with maybe organising some activities in the hostel like a party night or something to get the guests to meet each other or a pub crawl..

Theres only one thing that I really didnt like, in the 15 bedroom there are 3 bunk beds, so the space between each bed is too short and too unpleasant as is easy to get hurt while you're sleeping. The hostel is big enough, I just dont understand why they dont make a room with 2 bunk beds instead of 3.

From the moment I walked into the hostel, I was made to feel welcome. The staff are extremely friendly and are always happy to help. It's a very clean place with decent size rooms and a sociable common room.

Nice new hostel- very like a hotel. New amenities, very clean, lovely friendly staff. Wifi works perfectly. Not a party hostel but perfect if you want to relax in the piece and quiet. Private room was comfortable with a little kitchen. A nice area to stay in the city and walking distance to the metro. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

the hostel has a very modern design/style, but not properly built. Many parts of the hostel get extremely slippery due to the constant rain in sao paulo and there should be something done about this to avoid any serious accidents. I slipped multiple times. Also there is a very steep hill to reach metro or any other areas in the city. Also considering that the cheapest room available is R 35 in a 15 person room with NO breakfast included is a bit lacking in value for the buck.. bit boring as well

I really like this place as it is clean and easy to live in and you can get involed with social side if you want to or move to a more quieter space if you prefer. But on the downside the wifi is sporadic and the rooms are small if sharing, really good if not - clean, new and cosy. There is also a steep hill to traverse to get to the metro or anywhere else you are likely to go to but that is SP in general. Supermarket across the road

First hostel in Brazil and was fine, great staff good facilities, clean and good location near metro and AV Paulista. It seemed fairly quite when I was there but travellers hung out in the lobby with bar if not out exploring. Would recommend.

I thought this was a good hostel - nice staff, clean, good price and good location except there is a big hill you need to walk up to to get to the metro... This is just Sau Paulo in general though.

I enjoyed my stay here. The hostel is really modern with a nice and helpful staff. The hill it's by is not really that bad, it's a great work out! It has a good location and i liked how close the supermarked was. Just remember to have a map with the location (google maps etc.) of the hostel before arriving. I got lost my first time coming out of the metro station! They had the best wifi i have experienced in Brazil too! :)

We stayed in a superior double room which was nice. It had a kitchenette which was handy although did limit the space available in the room. The kitchen was poor - a tiny supply of decent utensils and filthy, old pans. The hostel is in a safe neighbourhood and next to 2 supermarkets (use the one around the corner beside the garage, not 'Dia'). However, the hostel is on such a steep hill that carrying our luggage to / from the metro was horrendous. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hostel was extremely clean and the staff were incredibly lovely and helpful, especially Patricia who helped with any and all our queries instantly and with such a lovely attitude. Perfect choice for a stopover, with most places 20mins walk and two supermarkets within a minutes walk. I would definitely recommend, good kitchen facilities, comfy beds and amazing foam pillows - such a bonus!

Nice hostel. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. It was clean and very new. Our double room was too small but other than that we enjoyed our stay.

Nice, new, and clean hostel. Slight lack of atmosphere as a result though. Double room was small. Really nice rooftop terrace which isn't used enough-but could be great. Kitchen lacked equipment. Misleading signs advertising drinks deals. Good food from the bar. Annoying that we weren't allowed to check in before 2 even though they said our room was free. Staff very helpful with seeing the city.
