Really good place to stay in Sao Paulo. I only stayed for one night but I had a very good experience ! The hostel is located in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. The subway is very close which gives an extra point for me. Staff people very cool, nice and helpful. The breakfast was ok too. Although, my bed was not very comfortable and hard to get in. Anyway I'd recommend this hostel for sure and of course if I'm ever coming back I will stay there. Thank you !!

Amazingly friendly staff. They really take the time to make you feel welcome and help you with any directions or fun things to do. It's a smaller hostel so it's more of a family feel than larger hostels. The internet speed is great and there are plugs and lamps next to each bed which is extremely convenient. The breakfast in the morning was basic but good. There are a lot of cool bar/music spots nearby so you have stuff to do and you're right next to the metro for easy access to the city.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in - staff super helpful, particularly trying to arrange going to see Corinthians. Nice area, excellent company.

Se o café Hostel se chama assim deveria ter doses de café "gratis" pra fazer café a qualquer hora do dia. Tornando o pó de uso comum. Senti uma certa falta de disciplina ao após usar a louça não lavarem imediatamente e a ducha estava fria.

Sempre deixamos uma jarra com café na cozinha, quando acabar é só pedir pra nossa staff que eles repõem! Quanto ao chuveiro, já está funcionando normalmente. Obrigado pelo feedback e volte sempre!

A nice hostel, very close to the metro station. The rooms are a bit small (I took the private room double bed). The staff at the desk speak English pretty well and they are very helpful.

The breakfast was extremely disappointing. Breakfast time was 8am to 10am, however, when we arrived for breakfast at 9am there was no food at the table. The chef was aware of this and continued to chat to another worker despite 5 people waiting for food. There was no bread, cheese or juice. Additionally, there was no resemblance to the photo of breakfast advertised on the hostel's website.

The chef was working on a trial period and we were aware of these problems, so he no longer works with us. We are sorry that you couldn't enjoy a better breakfast and we assure you that it won't happen again!

Hostel have a good atmosphere. Clean and organized, the staff is kind and helpful. The location is nearby metro station, bike rent and bars in Vila Madalena. There you can meet people all around the world. Its a peaceful hostel. The only thing it's the bar closes at 10pm, but it's not a real problem because there are many others things to do.

Cracking location; staff; facilities; vibe and everything else. I was originally meant to stay for 4 nights but stayed for 11. From the moment I check in 'fabinho' one of the receptionists helped me straight away as his English was superb. We later became good mates. The other receptionists 'tanya' 'vitoria' were excellent too. So friendly and very knowledgable of the area. Luis the kitchen attendant/barman is awesome too. The only downside was the rude, obnoxious French guy on the desk.

Not a bad hostel, although some of the staff are not very friendly, at least my experience anyway. Location is close the metro but not too close the main area of Villa Madalena. Breakfast was good. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

This place had such a great vibe, the staff really take care of the place an you can enjoy sitting in lots of little coves surrounded by their herb gardens. Breakfast was beautiful! We had our laundry washed and dried within a few hours there. Love that each bed has its own power point. Also they had a little where local bars, food, chemist, metro etc all are ! Great location.

We enjoyed the stay very much even though I had a cold and had to stay in my bed for one whole day. One guy who worked there was so nice to me! He brought me tea to my bed! I would stay there again! Thanks a lot!

There was no locker for me when I arrived so I had to leave my bag alone on my bed when I was out. My bed has too near the ceiling. I almost couldn't sit on it.

Felt welcome from the second I walked into this place. Luiz at the front desk is amazingly friendly and helpfull. Hostel is clean and breakfast is great. In a safe neighbourhood with lots of nice bars and cafes, but still really close to the center. Would stay here again if I come back to São Paulo!

The room was messy the look was not good with scattered bags of other guests. Congratulations to breakfast. Was very good.

Having to deal with other guests' mess is part of the experience of staying at a hostel. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about that. We are glad you enjoyed our homemade breakfast, thank you!
