great hostel, excellent central location, staff could have been more friendly
Me and my girlfriend went to Belo Horizonte to meet friends we met in Rio. Lovely hostel, very clean and good facilities. But it is quiet, and we I don't think we spoke to anyone the hole time we were there. Being a couple people don't tend to approach us the same as single travellers. Even so, not a great place to meet people. But a clean safe place to stay close to the Savassi.
Awesome Hostel, one of the very best in the country.
Samba Rooms is a really well designed hostel with a big lounge,kitchen and dining room and big dorms. The decor is modern and cool and it has a nice feel. The bathrooms are new looking with hot showers :-) the beds could do with looking neater when you arrive- in our room blankets and pillows were all over the place so it didn't look as though it was clean from previous guests. The buzzer system on entry and exit could be better (maybe a camera needed? Or get to know guests' names for identity?)
Amazing location, amazing facilities, great staff!
The night I stayed at Samba rooms hostel Brasil was playing Cameroon. They had a cookout, drinks, and live music going on before, at halftime, and after the game. I met some wonderful people during my stay as well who I plan on keeping in touch with for the rest of my life. The people who worked at the hostel were all friendly and had great suggestions on where to go after the game. The room we stayed in was perfect. Enough space for 2 people and a private bathroom.

The staff was extremely helpful. When we arrived, they immediately assisted us with checking in and showing us our room. There was a BBQ going on in the back for the Brazil vs. Cameroon game and they helped show us around, meet some people and get us settled in with food and beverages.

Good atmosphere, good people, one very helpful employee. Also one unintelligent one.
Good hostel. Clean and friendly and new facilities. Good beds and shower.
Very kind staff, great location and nice atmosphere. The bathrooms are pretty good.
The place is right on a major street and is walking distance to a lot of tourist locations and nearby Savassi Square. The place is cool, but reminded me of a hippie old frat house and things are somewhat messy but they have lockers and good bathroom facilities and living room area. Was there for only one night, but met some great people through there and wouldn't mind going back and staying longer. Price was a bit steep but I believe that was mainly due to the World Cup.
It was really expensive because it was a couple of days before the first game of Colombia in the World Cup. Because of this, its "Value for money" wasn't great. However, I found great atmosphere.
Thanks Daniel for being so helpful. You deserve a medal!
I was treated like 1 more of the gang. Leo is very concerned with customers satisfaction. I strongly recommend Samba.
