Cold water shower almost every day. Despite that it was all really nice.

João, we have hot shower every single day. There is one single tap which you can control the temperature openning more for cold water or openning less for hot water. We are very sorry that you didn't have "hot shower".

Good location 1 block from the subway and maybe the best streets for day/night life. Common rooms quite small and ran out of beer 1 night.

We ran out of beer for few hours and it was replaced as soon could be.

Best hostel ever. I can only recommend you to stay here. I have never met so many nice people at a place, where it was also a so chilled and, at the same time, energetic atmosphere. No doubts at all, this is the best hostel in Sao Paulo. You will enjoy your stay for sure :-)

hostel paulista só tem viado! não, to brincando :) Great hostel, great people, great atmosphere, great intro to the city! It's got its high rating for a reason. Warm blankets, chill bar and nice breakfast, and hosts João and André are very caring and good people. Vou voltar! / Vidar, 24, Sweden, Student

Great hostel thats only just started up. Comfy rooms with the all important shelf by your bed with its own light and power socket (I know right!?). Great atmosphere if not a little chilly in winter. The staff are amazing though. The two young guys that work at reception are super relaxed and did everything you could possibly ask of them. Made our stay in SP and was probably our best hostel experience so far. Keep it up!

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in anywhere. Everything is clean and working, staff are really helpful with any questions and motivated, the location could not be better and even the breakfast for hostel-standards is really good. Also has a bar and a "party area" for those fancying it, but as they are on another floor it doesn't disturb those preferring to sleep early. There's a great atmosphere in this hostel! (Stayed there for one week)

brandnew hostel in a great location! Great staff who is helping you with every question you may have (even if this is at an early morning arrival). Thanks for the nice time at Hostel Paulista - I recommend this hostel to everybody who is visiting Sampa!

The guys running the hostel are absolutely great. I don't speak much Portugese and they were very good with English and helping me plot my way around Sao Paulo. This is a safe, clean and fun place to stay. Highly recommended!!!

The best location in Sao Paulo. One block to subway station (Trianon Masp), one block to Paulista Ave, steps to restaurants, grocery store, markets. Welcoming staff and guests, brand new beds, locker, cheap beer and free breakfast. I slept very well and I did not have any problems there. I really recommend The Hostel Paulista. Good price and good service.

I am a foreigner living in São Paulo and I was looking for a hostel that is affordable, in a good location, has good facilities and listens to its customers. The Hostel Paulista is located 200 metres from Trianon-Masp station, next to Paulista Avenue and the nightclubs of Rua Augusta. Andre and João are excellent hosts and provide breakfast as well as other services like laundry. The hostel has big bathrooms and plenty of space. There is also a bar featuring a big tv with lots of channels.

The Hostel opened not a long time ago, that’s why all the furniture, bedding and decoration are quite new. The location is very privileged at the corner of Alameda Santos with Rua Pamplona, at 2min of Trianon-MASP subway and Avenida Paulista. They have a movie theater and a bar inside the place, and it makes the atmosphere a lot more cheerful. All the staff over there are very approachable and always willing to help. I loved this place!
