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!

The facilities could use some touching up, but the staff are what make this hostel great, most of them were very helpful. It's also in a great location!


It's very important to highlight that the man bathroom doesn't work very well and I suggest to do something in this subject.


Very disappointing Recently stayed in this hostel and based on reviews we were expecting a lively atmosphere however there was no atmosphere here, or any sense of communal area for socialising compared to other hostels we have stayed in. On the friday night the apparent owner of the hostel invited all his Brazilian mates over for a party/singsong but neglected to invite any of the guests who were subsequently left inside looking out at the festivities! Breakfast was extremely basic at best with

I´v been for just a night. It has very good location, the airport bus from the international airport stops in front. They also have a bar and free internet. The staff was nice, helping with directions. The rooms are basic and the female dorm has aircon.


Very good option for staying in São Paulo. The location is the best!


The bathrooms could be better. But besides that, it's a great place in a great location. The staff is very friendly, i'd definitely stay there again.


Had an enjoyable two nights at this hostel. Staff were friendly, and location is good, close to a metro station and nightlife. However, there were some issues with this hostel. We stayed in the room below the balcony. The room had no privacy or security. The toilet next to the bedroom was very dirty and smelly. Also the shower room had only one hot shower. Strangely, as this is a football hostel we were unable to watch the champions league and the staff had no idea of the dates of the World Cup


We think the hostel was too expensive for what it offered. The location is very nice! Staff were nice but the hostel needs reconstruction, one good renovation!


wasnt there long but seemed like a good hostel from what i saw.


This place is great. Very comfortable, clean, and a great location. The only downside were the bathrooms, kinda dirty and broken when I was there. It can be a little loud at night but hey, it is a hostel.


Think the only down side was somewhere to relax, the communal area had very uncomfortable seating so was hard to relax, but apart from that it was a very pleasent stay, good staff and great company :)


Good location and good value for money. The room had pretty strong smell and general cleanness could have been better.


Nice hostel with good bar to start the night at a good location in sao Paulo. Lacks some good outdoor space. Staff was good and funny, always in for making you a good caipi! Keep in mind that you pay more without a booking through hostelworld, about 40%.


This is a good hostel for its location and the staff are helpful. If you get the dorm which is directly under the reception/bar/balcony/entrance then don't expect a good nights sleep, plus it smelled unfortunately...requesting one of the other dorms will make this a pleasant stay.
