This hostel is very small so expect crampt rooms. There isn't much space to put back packs and if you want to get into your locker under your bed you will have to move a few bags. Each bed has it's own plug though and shelf which is great. The kitchen is nice and the hostel is clean. It's not too far from paulista but it is a very steep walk with backpacks! The showers are warm and clean. There isn't really a common area to hang out which is a shame the outside area is ok but can get cold.

Good place, great location, excellent staff! Rooms a little too small, tho. Lockers are under the beds and not enough space to open then easily without disturbing other people. Loved staying there, would do it again.

Good place to stay near the adventurous area of Augusta Avenida.

Ok, Sao Paulo its pretty much built on a hill, but the hostel is on a big one. When you are trying to come back from the hostel to Paulista with your things on your back it could be not that great. The lockers on the room that I stayed were under the bed, but the room was too small for them. I dont know, just saying.

This is a HOSTEL hostel, where you can talk to the employees about life's biggest questions until three in the morning, compare notes with the breathtakingly-diverse crowd of people who pass through (more backpackers making the rounds through South America than couples and youth groups on vacation, nothing against the latter two), and otherwise make enough conections to make you at least slightly permanently homesick. Everything a hostel should be and nothing more, nothing less. Saudades!

The staff are really friendly and helpful. On my first day, the receptionist went through the map with me showing me the best places to go in the city. The breakfast is nice too and the kitchen is a good feature.

Please keep in mind that this is a hostel. The place is clean and open. The room that I stayed in had broken window panes so they used pillow shams to cover certain parts, which isn't too bad since it's hot in Brazil. The toilet is next to the shower with no separation so water will go everywhere and the sink is located outdoors. The location is great though! It's really close to the metro and Paulista Ave is alive night or day.

Friendly staff, location is ok but up a steep hill, which however, gives a great view of the area. Nice hostel if you want a fairly chilled atmosphere and your mainly going to the beach

Pros: Good location, nice staff and good brakfast. Cons: the dorm next to the reception is noisy at any time. They charge you 5% more if you pay by credit card. There are many mosquitos. The garden doesn't have a roof.

Great small hostel, very clean. I lost my lock's key and they helped me to open the locker. Friendly staff, good beds, good showers. The one thing missing are hand towels on the bathrooms, and maybe a liquid soap also. Breakfast is good.

Great breakfast, lockers in room on floor seem to be Brazil standard for hostels, but they can be quite noisy and frustrating to use. windows open in room, maybe reason i had several bites in the morning, again that is very common it seems in Brazil hostels. Not the most social hostel, but more quiet one. Friendly staff and good breakfast, good location - overall good stay.

I won't be able to stress this enough, the staff of this place is amazing. I had lost my luggage and may of my belongings and they helped me with everything they could. I'm very grateful towards them. It is also very well situated near Paulista Ave. and near a the Trianon-MASP subway station. The beds were comfy, the bathrooms were clean and the breakfast delicious.

Good location, Easy walk to paulista avenue and the metro. Quite outdoor area with a nice breakfast. Staff were helpful & had provided me with a good map of São Paulo with recommendations where to go & what to see. On my last day I wasn't leaving till 10pm and they were cool with me leaving my luggage and even waiting around in the communal areas for a few hours.

Great little place close to Avenida Paulista-- only 20-something beds, and I always prefer small hostels. Staff is really helpful, the bathrooms are cleaned round- the-clock, beds are comfy, chargers for each bed, yummy breakfast, coffee all day, good lounge area to meet other travellers-- all in all, I would definitely go back! Perto da Avenida Paulista-- um hostel pequeno com apenas 20-poucos camas, mas eu sempre prefiro hostel assim, porque e mais facil conhecer a outros viajantes. 10/10!

Everything was great. Staff were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Location was perfect for me because I wanted to go to the Museo de Arte Sao Paulo and it is only a couple blocks. It is conveniently located by the metro.
