Good hostel. Coud be a bit closer to the metro , but ok.


The people who work there made it the best possible experience by just being who they are. Favio, Gabriel, Alan, Rafa, Amanda...all very friendly and open minded people who can easily become your best friends. Music and atmosphere were better than we could hope for. Free caipirinhas and foosball made icebreaking a breeze. Rooms and bathrooms were always clean. The wifi sometimes was barely existent in our dormitory, but its pretty good down in the bar area. Would definitely stay there again

What you talking about? Never heard of a hostel without WiFi these days... And ours is incredibly fast. 30mb optical fiber...


The staff were so friendly and accomodating. Loved the fun party vibe. Only downside was the 10 min walk to the station and the average cleanliness of the rooms/toilet (there were three unused bed with dirty shirts on them during our stay). There is no free breakfast (but the free caipirinhas are a good substitute) and the time limit on showers means people cant shower one after each other. Good stay for a few days!




Met some great people includkng staff was a really intresting city and shoutout to Gabriel who made our stay extra special :))

Good place for a party in Vila Madelena which is bouncing! 10minutes walk from the metro where you can get anywhere for R$3.5. Showers are OK struggle to get them warm and cut off after 4 minutes. Dorm rooms are boiling with no fresh air only fans.


my staying there was great, i'm just sorry i was pretty sick in those days so i haven't really interacted a lot, but for what i saw it's pretty a good hostel, young staff and good atmosphere! if you want have fun and meet a lot of people its a great to stay and the rooms are pretty clean, the cleaning lady is working hard. Not a fancy place but a cool place for sure!


The cheapest option online, but it doesn't feel like it! Great atmosphere - feels cosy and friendly. Nice bar and free caipirinhas great for getting people together. Nice neighbourhood. A bit of a walk from the metro station. The 4 minute showers are pretty annoying.
