Excellent hostel and facilities and helpful friendly staff. I would recommend a few more options at breakfast and the directions to the Hostel could have been more accurate. I loved this hostel though thank you so much xx


Great location, easily accessible by metro at Vila Mariana station. The staff spoke good English and was very helpful and friendly. Facilities were small but kept clean and had good security.

Great place to stay one or more nights! Staff are incredible: respectful and always available to attend all requests. Rooms are wide and confortable. Beds, pillows and sheets are high quality. Bath towels too. Air conditioning works like a swiss clock. Bathrooms just could get more wall hooks to raise funcionality. Security could be a little bit improved by one or more cameras on the entrance and a guest RFID card to allow quick access to checked in customers.


Every thing was perfect even though I could not hit the keys correctly above the staff was so friendly and helpful the place was very clean I really enjoyed my stay there I couldn't say enough good things about the place

Best Hostel I have ever stayed at hands down!


Just the best hostel in Brazil! Really clean, the staff kind and helpful. I wish I could live in there! LoL.


Really great place in my opinion. Though I'm not really qualified to say, I felt that the price was really good too. Though I don't think that is is a particularly expensive neighborhood in SP, Sao Paulo is expensive, even more than Rio, and yet this place isn't and the facilities are great. I highly recommend this place. Both the owner and his wife are nice as hell, and the staff--though they don't speak English--are sympathetic/kind people. DEFINITELY the place to stay in Vila Mariana.


Lovely place, great owners. Don't expect the typical hostel feeling with backpackers hanging around, but instead be guarateed a good nights sleep. The hostel looks exactly like on the pictures - new, nice and the cleanest I have ever stayed in. The beds are very comfortable. The hostel is located a 5minute walk from the tube (same line as Tiete Bus terminal), which leaves you in the centre in 10minutes. 20 min walk to Ibirapuera park. I would definitely stay there again

I will return! I actually had to change my dates, and there was no problem. This is a new listing on hostelworld. Managers want to cater to people on 'business' on a budget. The staff were super friendly and went out of their way to help, even for small things, like metro costs/discounts! Bunk beds have enough space to sit up; the decorum is colorful (in a truely Brazilian way); lockers in rooms are adequate size; great breakfasts! Highly recommended!


Clean and confortable rooms, good location and very friendly staff. Roberta is the manager and I'm pretty sure she will welcome you as a member of her family. They have lockers, breakfast, fast internet, kitchen and very clean bathrooms.
