clean and very friendly staff. took us in for Christmas and made us feel like family. recommended for anyone that stays in sao Paulo


Definitely a work in progress. Place has potential but currently too many niggly things. Kitchen was not too well equipped with utensils, cutlery etc. Dorm room I was in was very cold, basically a converted garage. Some staff let the good ones down. A smile is all that'as needed sometimes. Natas - I forget the proper name - was a super friendly legend. Overall nothing bad but nothing great. Rating reflects the place.


Close to subway but not recommended at all. Not helpful staff. Breakfast short and very poor despite the 2 breakfast options on the web,which is the fact,1sandwich OR 1omelette.JUST ONE.NO BUFFET and you have to fight for every single thing with a very rude woman who runs the kitchen. The breakfast is from 8 to 10 but go at 8 because if you go at 9 the "kind" woman doen't give you anything and tell you:"Sorry, breakfast is at 8, the juice is over".The worst staff and breaksfast in whole Brazil.
