Hostel feels brand new, everything is very clean and the staff is also helpful
Very nice hostal, nice staff, strongly reccomend it
Location is good in a safe and nice neighbourhood close to many bars and restaurants. And with metro (only 5 min from hostal) you can reach all tourist places quite easy. Hostel itself is also nice. Very good to relax after a noisy day in the city.
Safe location in a very hip neighbourhood close to subway which makes it easily accessible to main attractions. Great nightlife in the hood but I wish hostel would have also planned sth like bar hopping or free day walking tours. There were not that much useful info at the hostel.
One of the best hostel I've ever been. It's brand new and the owners thought about every single detail. The hostel is very well designed, the decoration is amazing, every room has a different theme and the beds are very strong and spacious - it's not a regular bunkbed. Every bed has it's single light and plug. The whole hostel is super clean and the showers are very nice. There is this very confy sofa at the living room that faces this amazing deck. Only two blocks from the subway. Thanks Sofia!
Beautiful hostel in a nice neighborhood near to the metro. Beds were comfortable and the common area was a nice chill oit zone. Staff werr pretty good but sometimes not available for long periods of time which could be frustrating if you needed to get in/out of the hostel or buy some water. Overall though worth the money.
Great location, clean, staff was very very helpful, felt like at home :-)
The hostel is located at a very nice neighborhood. It is at 12 blocks from Aspicueta Bars and 2 blocks from Vila Madalena metro station. The breakfast is based in a coffee, milk, bread, cheese, jam and fruit. It is good enough. It has a great atmosphere and the reception guys are very friendly. I would recomend to improve the wifi net to all the hostel not only the reception hall and to clean the showers every day.

This is a great hostel. Very nicely furnished and clean. There are drinks available to buy from reception which is good to have and the staff were helpful and friendly. The beds in the rooms are bunk beds but are comfortable. They have a chill out area near reception which is were most people seemed to gather. It is very close to Vila Madalena which is a great area with many bars and restaurants, which always seemed to be busy when we were there.

Very nice Hostel in a safe residential neighborhood of Vila Madalena. You are a couple of blocks away from the Metro and about a 15 walk to some cool Bars. Staff was very helpful and the place is always kept clean. Beds were pretty comfortable and had their own outlets and lights. My only complain is that the WiFi was pretty bad and that it was hard to find a super market in the area. Maybe adding supermarkets to the Map they give you would be helpful. But overall I had an Awesome time there!
Namoa is a beautiful hostel the main area has a tv and outdoor area with seating. Upstairs you have the kitchen which you can use and fridge. Very clean! Male and female toilets/bathrooms. Rooms are a decent size aswel as the bunk beds. Staff are helpful and friendly. Drinks and snacks are sold. The location is very good about a ten minute walk from the restaurants and bars in vila madalena. Also has a few nice restaurants closer. Would definately stay here again!
Great facilities, very very clean and terrific location! and the Staff were amazing as well. Very helpful. A great hostel!
Had a great time here. Staff is very nice, the location couldn't be better and I felt really safe here. Thanks Namoa!
Good location - short walk to metro. Safe area but difficult to find a supermarket nearby. Staff are really nice and friendly and it is so easy to start conversations with them. Kitchen, rooms and toilets are very clean but the room lacks a table/shelf or something for guests to put some stuff.
Pros: Brilliant location - on the metro line in a safe neighbourhood Absolutely beautiful rooms, brand new bunk beds with lockable storage underneath, and brand new bath rooms. Great communal area with a comfy sofa, flat screen TV. Cons: No tap water filter Breakfast wasn't fantastic

A good and safe hostel in Vila Madalena, a traditional neighborhood of são paulo. The subway is just a few (3or4, not 2, as the hostel said) blocks away. The male bathroom in 2nd floor is not the cleaner. prefer use the one near the kitchen. although breakfast is served until 10:30, try to arrive before 10:00. on one day I was having coffee at 10:15 and there was no bread. Great staff and a good atmonsphere.
We booked a room for four people and they put us in a 6 people room saying that the other one was being renovated and there could come 2 people more, if the 4 people room is not avaliable why to offer its reservation on the website?
Great Hostel but : - Poor Wifi ! - Poor Breakfast ! Otherwise the place is really nice. But these two items could be improved.
It was like staying at a hotel!! The hostel is tastefully decorated and everything is brand new and sparkling clean. It is in a good area Villa Madalena and very close to the metro which is convenient for exploring Sao Paulo however a little bit away from the bars and restaurants in Vila Madalena (but a short taxi ride) Staff were extremeçy helpful especially Sua who was determined to get my friend a nutella crepe to satisfy her craving haha Only downfall was there was no atmosphere.
