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.

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!

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.

Very good option for staying in São Paulo thanks to it's location. At the time I was staying there, it was way cheaper booking a bed via hostelworld than without reservation. Showers could be better.

If you dont have your own padlock, dont expect your stuff to be locked safely. Every night some wanna-be rappers were practicing their lines just outside the reception which made falling asleep a difficult task. Our dorm was in a former garage with a weird smell in it and just a small window for the light to come in. One of the staff was totally ignorant upon our arrival and even kind of rude. The hostel might do with some more showers.

Everything cool, really cool staff too! Except for the bathroom, mostly no hot water. Also I find weird that you have to pay for a towel.

The staff speaks english which is rare in Brazil. They try to help you in preparing your trip. The rooms are okay, clean enough and it's not too hot. There was no noice at all, a computer available. It was a good stay!
