The kitchen is a little small, so is delayed to have breakfast when is occupied and the people stay long having breakfast. In overall, is OK this hostel.

Nice and comfy hostel with helpful staff and nice common room. Location is about 10ish minutes from metro Ana Rosa, but safe and nice neighborhood.

Overall hostel seemed lovely however our private double room was a converted garage which I did not like at all. Very much still a garage with very little light, flimsy door, small bed- at one stage had smokers in garden and due to the flimsy door we could clearly smell the smoke in the room. Rest of the hostel was lovely but wouldn't stay in the garage again.

Great stay in this hostel. Especially loved the location, felt really safe and only minutes from the subway station!

Good hostel. Not hundred percent sure who works there and who doesn't but still a good atmosphere. Kitchen is a bit small and not loads of space when you are having breakfast. Meant that I didn't have it for one of the mornings. Overall pretty good tho.

Hey Owen! We have plenty of comfortable places for you to eat your breakfast other than the kitchen!! There is no reason why you would miss your breakfast for one day! Not at all! Sorry that you went through this situation! Hope you enjoyed :)

By far the best hostel I ever stayed! Starting with the energy of the place, the people that make you feel really at home! The owners are such nice and loving people! You really become friends with them and with the staff! On top of that you have some really cool arty feeling over there and all the rooms and bathrooms were clean, from the beginning to the end. Loved it!!!!

good hostel, but the location is a little far from the nightlife - can't walk there. At least it looked like a relatively safe area.

When we arrived, there had been a storm, so there was a power outage for several hours. We ended up getting checked into the wrong beds because their computers were down, but staff were helpful in trying to sort it out and accommodate everyone. With no electricity, they were even offering free caipirinhas to guests to keep everyone happy! Bathrooms were clean, and breakfast was decent. There's lots of good hang out spots in the hostel and it's in a good neighbourhood with easy access to subway.

The atmosphere is very cozy, the location is great, everything is comfortable about this hostel. The only thing that got to me is that when I asked if there was a place for me to stay the following day the attendant told me there wasn't any beds avaliable for the following night. Then, 2 minutes after that, 7 gringos arrived without a reservation and in a step of magic there were not one, but seven beds avaliable! That was completely rude.

Oi Alice!!! Primeiramente obrigado pelo review!! Não sei o que pode ter acontecido realmente neste dia que mencionou porque em nenhum momento da história do Uvaia nós priorizamos algum tipo de hóspede. O tratamento é igual para todos, brasileiros ou não. Pode ter sido alguma confusão ou uma falha de nosso staff em oferecer a cama extra! Espero que a experiencia a parte disso tenha sido ótima e que você volte um dia!! Obrigado!

Super cool and authentic hostel. Their common areas are the best (specially the purple room that connects to the small alley of the village in the back). The rooms aren't the most spacious ones, but have lots of facilities for organizing your stuff (like big lockers below the bed and individual lamps/plugs/table). The breakfast was fine and they leave some coffee, bread and biscuits during the whole day. Recently, Vila Mariana is getting more and more interesting for backpackers and travelers.

Very good location, close to the metro with all major connections through the city. Con: most of the lockers were broken in the room.

The stay at Uvaia was simply perfect, the owner brought me with my luggage to the metro, which was very kind. The staff comforted me with food and drinks and we talked a lot. It is very cozy in the hostel and in there little garden to sit and have beers in the middle of sao Paulo it seems so quiet, pieceful and safe... unbelievable beautiful. The owner of the hostel baked pies on sunday for all the guests and there was a bazar where I bought a lot of new clothes and shoes. BEST HOSTEL EVER!!
