The Garoa Hostel is located very close to the São Paulo´s subway. This means that, whatever the purpose of your trip, everything is at your fingertips. The staff is highly professional and friendly, they do whatever it takes to your stay to be as pleasant as possible. The breakfast is served with fresh and high quality food . Also the atmosphere created in the hostel is extremely good, respect and friendship are feelings that prevail in this environment. I'm not from São Paulo, and i don´t know.

Cozy hostel, really close from the subway station Faria Lima. The facilities are brand new and the atmosphere is the chilling out type. Comfortable common areas, nice bar and nice backyard, it brings people together. The neighborhood is not the best but the new subway station has been changing things in there. Overall it's a safe place and the location is really good to move around the city - in a 10 million people city you'll see how much a difference does it make. Worth the money!
