A beautiful 1920’s villa in the middle of BH skyscrapers. Just minutes from Praca da Libertade and Savassi for going out. Very clean, nice atmosphere, beautiful building with original wooden floors, nice urban chic-left wing staff and helpful. One of which spent entire night with us to show us around bars. Also around the corner from direct bus to airport. Would definitely recommend.
When we arrived clerck didn't know about our room and he asigned an in suite four beds one. After he called the manager he learned there is an in suite twin room in the hostel, and he moved us to it. After that incident everything was ok, Breakfasts were simple.
Amazing staff (thank you sooo much guys, for this wonderful vibe), great BBQs, live music from time to time, beautiful, huge patrimonial house just 5 minutes away from the hearth of the city (Praça da Liberdade), good breakfast, fun evenings on the large balcony where it's so easy to meet the other guests and make friends.... In summary : all perfect! Thanks again, Daniel. Congratulations! (Well deserved, a few weeks away from the first anniversary of this perfect hostel!)
We didn't stay for very long as we arrived late and left next day, but the staff was very grumpy and didn't know about anything to do in the city, which is something expected from hostel staff absolutely anywhere.
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.
