Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this hostel. On one hand, there were a lot of mouskitos and the hostel was pretty empty, but, on the other hand, the staff were really friendly and helpful and the hostel is located near many restaurants and bars.

Not a bad hostel, but we felt a little let down by a few things while here. First is the location. It's a ~15 minute walk from the nearest subway, and while it's in a neighborhood that has some nice bars, it's pretty far from anything else and any train stations. Not great. Also, there is no breakfast. They just put out a loaf of plan bread on the table. Also be aware that there a lots of mosquitos here, we had to kill 15+ in our room. More to say here but limits review length sadly.
Loved my stay there. The place has a magic athomsphere and a very friendly staff. The decoration makes you fell in a fancy place, but it is warm at the same way. The location is great when you want to stay near the bars and the nigtclubs of Vila Madalena. The bed linen was new and the towels were not charged. Bathroon was clean and had hot water. The breakfast is simple but enough to start your day. I found Brazilian and foreign guests and met really nice people there! Much more than I expected
