Nice hostel! Two locations with both good wifi! Breakfast is fine and you can play fifa against the owner;) beds are good and really nice showers! Walkable to the city center and a supermarket close by
The breakfast was much better than other hostels I've been in so far in south america. They have 24h reception, rooms are really clean and everything looks new. Owners are amazing and it's not too far from party districts, so you can get there and come back without paying too much in taxis. Highly recommended
It was a pleasant stay, the staff was helpful and kind and the facilities were good. Good showers, which is definitely important. Standard breakfast. My only complaint would be the fan in the dorm which was not very effective for the size of the room, and the weather was incredibly hot during our stay. As for the location it is not too far away from Savassi, where all the action happens, and there are enough restaurants and amenities around. All in all I think you get your money's worth.

Hostel with nice decoration, comfortable rooms, clean common areas and good facilities (wifi - TV - kitchen - balcony). They have good breakfast and the staff is really nice too. They have two houses with different kind of rooms in a quiet street at night.

- It is very easy to someone who is not a guest to enter and catch the key of a private room, although nothing like that happened while I was in the hostel. - Very good wifi connection and good commodities
Great hostel, cool design and well located close to bus stops and supermarket. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely get back!
Excellent hostel. I think you should consider allowing guests to check-in before midday.
Enjoyed Clockwork Orange themed hostel. Something different. Helpful staff. Big dorms. Very clean. Good breakfast. Kitchen in House 2 a little small.
I Had a very nice surprise when I entered the hostel. It is very clean and organized, a place where you can have a rest and the staff is very kind too. You have many options at the time to have your breakfast!!...I really recomend it! regards.

Didn't try other hostel in BH but it's quite easy to think that it is for sure one of the best there. They have two houses to host guests, one in front of the other. Security is ok, staff is very nice and helpful, speak different languages. Atmosphere is relaxed and the environment is new and clean. Location is nearby to one of the main streets so it will be easy to get a bus to get to the main squares etc. I recommend it and i'll stay with them again if i find myself in BH again.
I really enjoyed my two nights stay in the hostel, very clean, safe and close to downtown with the very nice Argentinian staff.
I only stayed there for one night before a flight from Belo Horizonte airport, but the hostel seemed very nice- safe neighbourhood not too far from the centre; modern, clean and spacious rooms and public areas; helpful staff. I would definitely return if I´m ever in BH again.
Very pleasant stay and the owners are very helpful people!! I'd definately go there again.
Location is very good and easy to go anywhere from there. A bit noisy (from the streets) at night at the second house. My bunk bed needed some repair. Staff is quite receptive.
I enjoyed the stay there! The only bad thing is that we got charged for the half price of a night, because we checked out 2h after the checkout time! (The hostel was not full, our room was empty, ...)
Good Staff, nice location, definitely recomended
Not much to do or eat close to hostel but easy access to bus lines.
The hostel has two buildings which are located across the road from each other. It is nice and tidy but lacked atmosphere when I was there and the staff seemed a bit distant. Also had to pay to use the computer
Staff is really nice. Had a short stay and everything was OK.
