I stayed in this hostel two times. I find it excellent, the location is great and the atmosphere is great too. I just think that security could be increased by asking ur name and room when you ring the door and/or maybe have a digital code to enter the gate and/or for check in. Loved this hostel!

great location, close to rua augusta which is a main street with bars and restaurants. A bit far from the metro station, about 15min walking. The rooms in the hostel are very small, but i loved the general atmosphere in the hostel, its very comfortable and the staff are very very friendly. The area is very safe and secure.


I had a great experience at this hostel. The only complain I have is that the water was cold even tho I showered in different showers. Other than that, I liked the breakfast, coffee and tea and the sandwiches were good. Very welcoming staff.


I had a wonderful time in this hostel. Very welcoming and breakfast was not bad. The only thing I had a bit of an issue was that the water was cold when you take a shower, upstairs and downstairs.

Loved the hostel for the very first time I've stayed there! All staff people are great, even though i don't remember all their names. Ive met a lot of cool people around there, and was also able to make friends for life :) I can't find Alexandre on Facebook but ill make sure u get your O Livro Vermelho, from Jung :)) Apart from the atmosphere, the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, they have regular breakfast which is enough i guess, near Augusta street, metro station, etc.


The sheets of the rooms are old and I'm pretty sure they were used more than once. The matresses and pillows are also too old, not higienic. The floor is covered with carpet. There was only 1 bathroom for like ten people...


I loved this hostel! The staff were amazing, especially Alex who helped me lot! The dorms and showers were super clean! Highly recommended!!


Only thing I would really ask for is air conditioning. Otherwise, this is a great place to stay.


This hostel is very well organized, and the staff and customers of the hostel were all very friendly and helpful. There were few things I didn't like about this hostel, and I would recommend it to pretty much anyone who might want to stay in a hostel in São Paulo.


surprising to see that a business decide to shut down its business and not even bothering to inform the customers or hostelworld.. they confirmed the booking like a week before my arrival and when I was there the hostel was shut down. I was left out in the middle of the street with no other place to go, and after mid-night it's unfortunately very difficult to find someone who can speak English in Sao Paulo.. Hopefully they won't repeat the same mistake in the future again!!!!!


The Hostel is very special. It is clean, it is nice, the stuff is very helpfull and the location is amazing! There is every kind of clubs, discos and bars around, and even at the hostel there is a amazing pub that I loved. Beside of it, it is also close to the subway and to many touristic points.


I had such a great time at this hostel, one of the best I've ever been too.

no complaints whatsoever. its not a party hostel, so if you are looking for that, you should look for another place. it however is very close to one of the party streets of Sao Paulo!


Nice place and nice people. You feel like you are staying at someones home.


Only think that disturbing me durring the stay was hammering rest was perfect


Room was great complete with lockable locker they provide free with no padlock. Breakfast was very good with fruit, cakes and breads. Washrooms were in excellent condition, great showers with water pressure and hot water.


cool neighborhood with nice bars and walking distance to downtown.


Very nice and helpful staff! the hostel has angled rooms and halls! It was a really nice stay. You should stay there, too! :) BUT maybe a map of the town or for the metro would be very nice :)
