Pros:Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff nice hipster decoration. Cons: .Not enough air circulation specially in ground floor rooms.It is also not the most clean room in Sao Paulo. I was coughing a lot .If you opened the windows, you will get mosquitoes .There is a bar at the hotel, voice is so loud till at least 1:00 a.m. Doors and walls are not well isolated .Bar clients(and anybody else)can access your room!


Great location to Avenida Paulista!! I liked the theme of the hostel and staff was very nice. Breakfast included was a big plus!


Amazing location just off av. Paulista. Good tele to watch the football. Showers could have been warmer and I felt a little like anyone could walk in as the front door was often open but apart from that I really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend to others


Very nice staffs here. Location is easy to access everywhere easily by Metro.


Lovely hostel, close to the metro and shopping centre. Staff is awesome! Met quite a good bunch of fellow World Cup travellers there, made good friends! Would definitely go again. Staff was very helpful and nice!
