I can't say enough good things about this hostel. The staff work hard to keep it immaculately clean. The location is great - I always felt safe in the neighbourhood. The hostel is a haven of tranquility, given it is so close to Paulista. The Metro station is 5 mins away, taxi rank 3 mins as well as numerous bus lines. The hostel is great if you need to study. The staff are helpful and friendly - beyond the call of duty! Breakfasts are amazing. Good value. You won't find better in Sao Paulo!!!

I didn't stay at this hostel because my booking was canceled by Verônica without my agreement. One week before my arrival she started e-mailing me, demanding that I payed 40% in advance besides the 10% that had already been charged by Hostelworld booking system. I told her that I was aware of the cancelation policy of her hostel stated on the hostel's page on hostelworld.com. She told me that it didn't matter and if I didn't make a deposit in advance my reservation would be canceled.

Beautiful, clean, spacious hostel with chilled atmosphere. Really easy to get to from bus terminal (right near a Metro Station), close to shops etc. Good kitchen, awesome breakfast. Enormous lockers in the rooms. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

The owner is wonderful...she goes above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. I arrived sleep deprived at at 1pm...there was remodeling being done next to my 4 bed dorm... she upgraded me to a private single room...to let me sleep. Then there is the breakfast...bread, rolls, cake, ham, cheese, warm cheese pastries...great selection...but the food quality was excellent. Even the coffee and the juice were the best I had in Brazil (12 day trip). Lovely place, clean, every amenity....enjoy!

I've been to 4 different hostels in Brazil and I must say this is the best one. Jacqueline and Veronica helped me a lot. The breakfast is so good and the bathrooms are very clean.

Nice hostel, making improvements while we were there. Not the most exciting neighborhood but easy to get to other parts of the city. A great deal for a private room compared to other options in Sampa.

best hostel ever!! great staff, always willing to help and make you feel welcome. The location is incredible, near most all touristic places and next to the metro station. Rooms are very clean and tidy as well as bathrooms. Very nice breakfast too! If you'r coming to SP, you need to book this place!

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay it will fit you well. But uf you are the kind of traveler that likes to meet others and party don't stay there. Everything in the hostel is very clean, the dorms are big and the location is perfect!

Great hostel with great staff. The breakfast is also very nice, only comment is that the location is a bit out if the way. It is close to a subway station though and walking around in the neighbourhood never felt unsafe. There is an excellent sushi place very nearby ;-)).

Bella Paulista is a great hostel. It is a beautiful, well-decorated space with a really friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast is great, lost of fruit, cakes, freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee etc. I had a great stay here, it feels more like a bed and breakfast than a hostel.

A beautiful hostel located near all metro and bus services, which was clean and with lovely staff. Did have more of a mature vibe to it which might discourage younger travellers.

Amazing. First of all, this was by far the cleanest hostel I´ve ever seen. Just spotless. The room was big and the lokers were huge. Just like the wardrobe we have at our homes with a key, of course. Amazing breakfast, bread, juice, cookies, fruits, cake. Very very good. Very well located, they are very close to Paulista Avenue and a subway station. But the best of all was the staff (specially Veronica and Jaqueline). Very helpfull. I would definetely recommend this hostel to my friends.

Wow, what a hostel! We spend 4 nights in this hostel and we were really excited about it. Perfect location close to many good restaurants and very close to the metro station. It's all extremely clean and well maintained. The breakfast is awesome (very tasty cakes and fresh juice). We can highly recommend this place!

Very friendly staff Close to the shopping center (3 mins) Just be careful to find the hostel:take the exit D from the métro Paraiso, go on the right side, you Will find 2 gas stations: turn on the right after the 1st one, go straight, walk 50m. Here is Cardim :)
