Brilliant!!! Bruno and his whole family are terrific, they provide the best service and the hostel is very comfortable too. Mama Brasil is one of the best hostels in South America.

I stayed for a night but I've would like to stay longer. Great place to meet people to see the city and to have a comfortable bed.

Charming little hostel in an excellent and safe location to explore SP. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful! It is only a very small hostel so only recommendation would be that avoid if you were looking for more of a party vibe. Nothing bad to say about it though

Bruno works really hard to make sure the hostel is clean, guests are happy and have everything they need. Super-attentive staff all around. I had fun hanging out with them and the other guests in the bar during the evenings, and on the great little back garden during breakfast. I did NOT have any security problems-but having stayed at another hostel in São Paulo that was robbed, I saw room for improvement (cameras, check in procedures). It's a new hostel and surely improvements are on the way.

The place was very nice, all was clean and the staff was very helpful, but it's a place for older people, like 30 or more. It's close to a subway station and near to avenida paulista.

Fairly basic hostel but nice. Staff were nice The owners were around often and the lady made sure to chat to everyone. The location is a quiet, residential area. The hostel isn't suited to lone travellers looking to make friends but it's a lovely place for those looking for quiet respite. (Note also that the middle and top bunks are a little tricky to get into if you're not nimble!)

I've spent a great moment in this Hostel. Friendly Staff. Good service, spontaneous people. You feel like home and in a city like Sau Paulo you feel absolutely in holiday with an outside bar and cosy atmosphere! To suggest absolutely.

Thumbs up for Mama! Good internet, very friendly staff, clean bathrooms, comfortable beds, nice varierity at breakfast... everything what a good hostel should offer. I really could not find anything to complain about. We even had dinner one night with the owners and some other guests and the atmosphere was really good. It is a place more for a nice chat while you drink a beer, to enjoy good food. I felt super welcome and would definatly recommend it!
