Right in the center of town, great facilities, free breakfast :-) everything you want ! Plus the keys to open the door are awesome, you feel like you're entering a spaceship ^^


Can see the amortization since last year, but still a very-very good hostel!


Stayed there only for very short time. But I can say that the staff was very friendly and helpful and also the location is the best you can have.


This hostel is really centric. Easy access to the metro and many small restaurants. From there, you can easily walk all the city ! I dont have the name of this lovely girl at the reception (she was dark hair...) lol. She was so perfect, smilling and nice. She gave me good recommendations for cheap restaurants and free walking tours ! PS: make sure the window is properly closed at night. Except if you like listenning people singing at 1 am. :)


Very stylish hostel, easy enough to find, nicely located.


Wouldn't recommend. But still is a fine hostel for the price. The breakfast included is horrible.

Hello! What's happened? We can't understand your review...


Nothing special, just a place to sleep.


The hostel is really central and you can go to the cool places at night easily. But the atmosphere in here is not really fun and the hostel is really dark. Nice place anyway.


It's a great place to stay and it's location and accessible to city center and metro make it the 'wanna stay place'.


Facilities were excellent and smack bam in the middle of the Sao bento area. Everyone was helpful. Great experience.


The hostel would be easier to find if there was a bigger and more obvious sign with the name. I walked past the building 3 times before I finally found it. Apart from that, all was very nice! Great staff (went out of their way to help me!), good breakfast and security system. Lightning needs fixing on the stairs because it was dark at night. Would stay again!


a very good hostel in the city center, you could go walking everywhere and the staff was very helpful! i totally recommend it to everyone!


Everything was OK and the staff (especially the girl in the morning shift) was very kind and helpful. Only two things to be criticized: 1) In the double rooms, Wi-Fi doesn't reach and 2) The last night we stayed, some people were speaking very loudly in the kitchen, and it could be heard in the whole building. It was hard to get some sleep and no one from the hostel staff seemed to care about this. For the rest, a nice hostel with good quality/price relation and perfect location.
