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 rooms could use some updating, but the people were awesome! The staff was very welcoming and kind. I'm so happy we stayed because we made some great friends!

Great hostel! Spent four nights there and loved it. Staff are very friendly and helpful and show you were to party!! Free caipirinha every night goes down well!! Had a great time and will be coming back soon hopefully.

Amazing staff, so much fun. Great atmosphere especially later in the week when they open the bar to public
This hostel is situated in Vila Madalena which is the nicest area in São Paulo in my opinion! Close to bars, restaurants and coffee shops, the area is hip and chic. The atmosphere at the hostel is great! Free caprihinas at set times and an hour ban on wifi gets everyone interacting and talking to each other and I really enjoyed getting to know everyone staying there. The staff are helpful and friendly and speak good English, so this is definitely somewhere worth staying for a few nights!
The hostel is about a 15min walk from the closest subway station. The kitchen was rather dirty, seemed that it was not cleaned daily. Free caipi night on Tuesday was fun. other than that it was pretty quiet at the hostel itself but the hostel is located in the bar and party area.

The staff are fun and friendly, I love staying there! My only crticism is that the sheets were old and smelly, left over from a previous hostal that was there.
Villa Madalena was described to me as the 'Soho' of São Paulo and it's spot on. So many lovely bars and restaurants less than a 5min walk. Hostel has a massive kitchen and offers free caipirinha every night which makes it so easy to meet people in the hostel. 2nd time in SP and I'd stay here again. Bebeto is a wealth of knowledge and the best hostel owner I've ever met!! Loved it here and see you soon :)
Fine stay. Beds and bathroom are good. Good location. Staff generally chilled. Upset however not to receive free caipirinha..I was slightly late but would have been a nice gesture of the hostel to still provide one since the bar was hardly busy!
Ok hostel. Good vibes on the weekend! Worst bed I've slept in on my whole travels so far, have had a sore back for at least a week after. Kitchen is quite disgraceful, I don't think anyone cleans it, bad implements and cooking equipment.
Staff except for the argentinian guy and barman were not very friendly or helpful. Nights out were suggested rather than arranged, staff didnt try to make stuff happen and bring people together.
Great location. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Nightlife wasn´t that great but the free caipirihnas and rooftop terrace were cool for a chilled out evening.
Very good location in he heart of bohemian district of Vila Madalena in São Paulo, however as a hostel don't expect much, there is no breakfast and cleanliness is poor.
staff was very helpful, the nightlife was amazing, basically if you stayed downstairs it was ok, but the bedrooms were really small, even for a hostel and the shower light was not working.
Staff didn't have very good knowledge of things, for example, how and where to get the bus to Paraty which I figured was quite a big tourist destination. Providing breaky wouldn't go astray either. Apart from that, clean, nice neighbourhood and would have a good vibe in peak season I'm sure.
Stayed here in november. Nice hostel, the bar opens to the public so gets busy easy to meet people. They have a comedy night as well which is good! food was good as well but iis only in the evenings.
