Small hostel, good and safe location close to avenida paulista, everything clean, nice garden..just in the room I slept you here all noise anD conversation from reception, where there are some people hanging out almost 24/7 :-) but this is kind of expectable in a hostel. I would recommend this one for a stay


Friendly staff and very nice interior. There is a little "garden/yard" where you eat breakfast etc - very cozy!


Extremely helpful staff and amazing breakfasts! Location a bit far from metro and it was a pain to find it when I arrived near midnight. Had a relatively quiet night chilling out with a few other travellers in the lobby, overall a great place to stay!


Shower facilities were poor. There were not enough showers or hooks in the showers to hang any clothes. Breakfast was ok and backyard garden garden really nice. The staff were really friendly and made us feel welcome. The location is quite a walk from the closest metro station.


Nice hostel, a short walk from Paulista. Very kind staff. Room was a bit small for 6 people but the beds were good. Good breakfast as well. I liked that it's a small place.


Simple and nice place... the locatin is a ten minutes walk from paulista but it is not a big deal... the rooms have fan, an air condicione should be more appropriate...


this place is cool, small hostel but the breakfast was amazing, and the 24hr reception saved us we arrived at 1am and it all went smoothly! and they let us store a bag there for a few days while we went to iguazu… 5 min walk to the metro too


I´m sure I will come back to Mama Brasil Hostel. The staff are so nice and attentive. Having breakfast in the garden is awesome. When I stayed there I felt I had known the Mama Brasil team for ages. All of them are good people, they are like a big family.

We only stay one night but the staff made us feel really confortable. NIce and friendly hostel!!


Perfect place, when to get a break from Sao Paulos' haste. Staff is really nice and can help in any question.


Fair prize, nice atmosphere and wonderful staff. But be careful with the shared room at the entrance: you'll hear the telephone, the motorbikes from the streets, the fan… and the noisy wooden cupboards!


Our stay at Mama's was very pleasant, if we come back to Sao Paulo we will defenitively stay there again! :-)


Staff was helpful and quite open to change our room which was too small for the 3 of us. Nice breakfast included!


Really nice hostel staff were very friendly and was in a great central location!

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.


Fun hostel centrally located near jardins, the cbd liberdades and the main park in sao Paulo


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.

Wish i could have stayed longer! Keep up with the good work girls and guys! Regards, geoffrey from belgium


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


Great atmosphere, breakfast and staff!! Charm hostel!
