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

Hostel directions were pretty good, breakfast was pretty good, but there seemed to be too many staff messing around in the evenings playing music whcih I really did´t like and people didn´t seem to want to know each other. The worst thing for me was the beds in my room the 8 bed dorm were next to each other and had no backs so that if someone slept in the bed next to you then your feet could easily touch in the night whcih is not good. I also had some real idiots in my room who took ages to ge

Sorry about the people in your room, you've chosen a shared one, which is by the way very spacious. We also have suits available if need more space and privacy. Sorry about our music, we love it and we have a deal here: we turn CL SOUNDs off everyday at 11pm. And sorry if you didn't spend some quality time with our guests cooking or cheering at CL BAR. Calling them "real idiots" is not a very good way to get to "know each other". Cheers!

Awesome hostel, staff are wicked and are helpful. It's not just a party hostel there is enough space to chill out. The area is cool, close to villa madlena where all the bars and good coffee shops are. It would be nice if there were more hammocks to chill out in.

The location was great (close to the subway and the Vila Madalena neighborhood...great for nightlife) which is important in a city as big as Sao Paulo! The hostel had a nice environment and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend!

I was blown away by how stunning and modern this hostel was. It's a nice change from all the backpacking hostels in other cities when staying in a massive city like SP. Location was OK, close enough to metro to go sightseeing or take a taxi to party at vila magalena. They had the most comfortable beds from all the other hostels in all of Brazil. Breakfast was fine. They have a reception/bar/communal space just steps from the kitchen which works well for meeting people.

Really cool design and decor, with pretty indoor court yard and open kitchen. Room was great, small but very comfortable with aircon, TV and good shower. Good breakfast with fresh fruit and juices. Location a little out the way but easy to get around with the metro. Friendly staff.

Fantastic location and awesome staff! They answered all of my questions very well. I had a great time here and would gladly come back here again! Lovely chill out atmosphere and great interior design, kinda tropical like but in a very cool way! Close to Vila Madelena and subway which was great! Highly recommended!
