Very safe neighbourhood, very central. We were there middle of the week in low season so there was no atmosphere at all, but the decorations and layout was really cute and good for what they have to work with. Amazing wifi, warm showers, big lockers, kitchen, clean and very comfy rooms. However was quite expensive for a hostel that small and no breakfast.
Only stayed overnight and arrived really late so can't comment on location or much about the place other than the wifi doesn't work in the dorm out the back.
Good hostel,even better location. Safe part of town almost felt like I was back in Sydney. Kitchen was excellent, rooms a little mouldy but all OK. Atmosphere was a little down but fofor a short stay was good and close to metro station
Staff was super friendly and helpful. I´d definitely return...
I had a brilliant stay at Vila Madelena Hostel, the facilities were excellent and the large, spacious common areas were creatively decorated and gave the place a great atmosphere. The bathrooms and kitchen were cleaned daily and to a good standard, plus the rooms were spacious and didn´t feel cramped. The staff were also really helpful, so an all-round winner! Only slight downside is the hostel´s proximity to metro stations, which are 15 - 20 mins walk away, but you´ve got legs...
The hostel is really nice and has a great atmosphere. The beds are quite comfortable and the lockers are spacious and work well. The "lounge" area outside is great and includes chairs, hammocks and a pool table. The only downside is the condition of the bathrooms, which need some remodeling (don't forget to bring your flip flops)! Still, I recommend the hostel and would definitely go back.
Wouldnt recommend this place. The beds are hard and uncomfortable, the rooms stinks and are dirty as well, and so is the kitchen and the bathrooms. The staff are lazy.
