That was really the best hostel i've ever been. It was well decorated- even the 11 bed dorm was spacious. It was so safe- the door has a password. The staff was the best, you just become friends with them all at the end. The location was ok, in a good area and 5 mins to the metro by walking. The breakfast was not so great but still fruits, cereals, bread, etc. I recommend it to everyone.

Great hostel with great staff. If you're looking for a lively and busy atmosphere though, visit on a Friday or Saturday if you can.

It´s the best hostel I´ve ever been, very clean, good baths with hot showers, well located, just blocks from the vila madalena´s bar.

Great hostel. located very close to the crowded vila madalena, but not inside of it. Staff were really nice, and the facilities were cool. only disadvantage I felt - only one shower and bathroom in the main building. caused some troubles in the mornings. other than that, great.

Everything about this hostel was awesome! I've stayed at hostels all over the world and this is definitely one of my favourites. The location is perfect, every thing you need is close by, metro, partying and food!

City Lights had a commercial advertisement shot on the night we arrived. There was a party the whole night with free Skol beer for those staying there. Making Gringos feel at home. Great idea to get people interested in the place.

Great hostel with friendly staff. Atmosphere in the bar our first night was brilliant. Bathrooms and showers were fairly average but otherwise highly recommended

Fantastic staff and location! Very chilled hostel and clean. Close to the subway and Vila Madelena. Love the personal touches such as a hairdryer and straighteners in the female dorms! My fave hostel in all of Sao Paulo, certainly will be back again very soon! Highly recommended :) TOP!

It's a very nice hotel, location, environment, people, the only thing is that there are is only one bathroom/shower in a floor, it's not enough, appart from that it's ok.

Fantastic atmosphere. The staff works tirelessly to make sure you feel welcome and included. It's a very special hostel and the perfect base to explore Sao Paulo. Cannot recommend highly enough.

My stay at the hostel was really nice, nothing to complain! The staff is the best, good beds, good shower, very good music! Very good breakfast and the location it could not be the best. In the most charming neighbor of São Paulo, very easy to walk and go around, and near the metro! The best of all is the environment of the place, you feel like you are home! I had the chance to travel with their Flower Power Alternative Trips, and its was one of the best moments of my year, thank you guys!!!!!!

The hostel has very good location, security and staff, close to subway. But we did not have good sleep, which is also very important to us. The double room is right above the reception and open area, and the door lock has a hole at the size of middle finger, it seems to me is an unfinished work of the room, I'm not saying someone peek through it, but combine with other things, you can hear everything people talking at the open area. In the morning, there are noise from next door at 6:45 am
